From the avant-garde MG Type M to the records set by the MG EX 181, and its integration into major global automotive groups, the octagonal emblem of MG has left an indelible mark on its era and continues to shine in the realm of vintage cars. Whether at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Tourist Trophy, or the Monte Carlo Rally, MG has made its mark in prestigious races and record-breaking venues worldwide.
In collaboration with the MG Club of France and the British Motor Museum, a unique exhibition will showcase a dozen exceptional vehicles, including the 1925 Old MG Number One and the 1938 MG EX135.
