The MGB is manufactured by the British Motor Corporation from the start, but later by British Leyland, from 1962 through 1980. The MGB is a totally redesigned version of the MGA, its predecessor. The newer model will do 0-60 mph (97km/h) in eleven plus seconds and shares few components with the earlier model. The unibody “B” type MG features ‘crumple zones” to protect the occupants from a 30 mph (48 km/h) collision with an immovable barrier and this is a first for the American market place.
