How Did the Classic British Sports Car Company MG Get its Name and What Does MG Stand For?

The MGB is the best-known classic British sports car and was introduced in 1962 as an update of the original MGA, which first appeared in 1955.

There were approximately 375,000 MGBs built before the company went out of business in 1981.

The MG stands for Morris Garages, a retail outlet that was established in 1911 and that began selling MG-badged Morris Specials in the 1920s.
