Similar to Porsche, MG established its reputation by combining a distinctive style with impressive victories in top-tier international sports car racing. Among their notable creations was the SA-Type introduced in 1936.
The SA-Type was available as a saloon or tourer, and many customers opted for a rolling chassis that was then sent to exclusive coachbuilders for personalized bodies. Despite featuring powerful 2,288 cc and later 2,322 cc, 75 hp six-cylinder engines, these vehicles were not classified as sports cars. From 1936 to 1939, a total of 2,739 SA-Types were produced.
