Hiring a classic car for the first time could be a little daunting. We think if you are at all unclear on where to start your classic car journey our chrome bumper MGB Roadster or GT from 70’s are as good a place as any.
Driving an MGB around A and B roads gives an insight into why speed limits were set at the levels they were. In this car they make perfect sense. The MGB four cylinder 1800cc engine was never the most powerful, although in a car of this size and scale it never struggles. Towns and cities are passed through with ease at the regulated 50kph in third gear. On the open road 100kph is easily achieved in 4th with the added bonus of overdrive to improve the MGB’s cruising capability. Going faster than 100kph is doable although not the MGB’s core strength – unlike many modern cars, an MGB is great fun to drive at fifty and comes into it’s own when it is off the motorway.
