The MGB-GT is the prettiest shooting brake ever made. But its engineering is more than 50 years old. And it wasn’t cutting edge to begin with. Now Frontline Developments in the UK are giving the MGB GT the engineering it always deserved: A 215-horsepower Miata mill, six-speed gearbox, limited-slip diff and advanced suspension components. Oh, and did I mention all those goodies are attached to a brand-new reproduction body?
Frontline Developments have been making advanced suspension bits and performance parts for British sports cars since 1992. After restoring and driving dozens of the things, they decided to build a brand-new car with the latest tech.
