What is an MG M Le Mans

The 1930 car is an iconic sports car that has left its mark on automotive history with its impressive performance and stylish design. The story behind this legendary car begins in the interwar period, when MG (Morris Garages) was known for producing sports cars that combined driving pleasure and affordability.

In the early 1930s, MG wanted to enter the prestigious 24-hour race at Le Mans in France, which had already established itself as one of the world’s most challenging and respected races. This led to the development of the MG M-type, which later became known as the MG M Le Mans.

This MG was introduced in 1928 as an upgraded version of the MG M-type, which had already gained popularity among motorsport enthusiasts. The new model was designed to meet the specific demands and challenges of the Le Mans race. The car was powered by an 847 cc four-cylinder engine that delivered impressive performance for its time.
