In the wake of the demise of the MG Midget and MGB, there seemed little prospect for the MG badge beyond being used as a kind of 'GT' badge for various Austins and Rovers. However, thanks to the determination of a few people and an enduring affection in public hearts the tale has had a happier ending. This is the story of that journey from desolation to rebirth, just like the phoenix from which the project that created the MGF took its name.

With a deeply researched text, detailed specifications and other data, and over 300 illustration, mostly in full colour, this book by renowned motoring author and MG expert David Knowles will be a vital addition to the bookshelf of anyone with an interest in modern British sports cars.

Latest Reviews
" This 206 page book gives a thorough and frank study of the last MG sports car, covering its business history as well as its design and production evolution. It's comprehensively illustrated with design studies and colour plates of road and racing cars. Knowles' extensive interviews with those involved lend a deeper insight and he pulls no punches in assessing the way Rover was bought, sold and manipulated in its last years. A refreshing addition to any MG enthusiast's library. "

" David Knowles provides a wealth of information that will delight the most hard core of TF owners, but presents it in his usual easy-to-read style that remains truly accessible to those with a more casual interest in the model. As ever, the illustrations are copious and superb, and we have no hesitation in recommending this book most highly. "
