Most expensive Midget
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.
