Most ex­pen­sive Mid­get

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

A time­warp 1979 rub­ber-bumper MG Mid­get 1500 dou­bled its lower es­ti­mate to be­come the most ex­pen­sive of its type ever to be sold at a UK auc­tion.

The new owner put down £25,000 for the car, which in­creased to £28,750 with pre­mium.

The 35-mile Mid­get was sold at Bon­hams’ Good­wood Fes­ti­val of Speed sale on 30 June 2017. It was never reg­is­tered and was bought di­rectly from the fac­tory by the pre­vi­ous own­ers, who were MG deal­ers. It had been kept in stor­age as part of their pri­vate col­lec­tion for the last 39 years, and has never been on the road.
