THE CCW VIEW

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Driving -

The TA of­fers the best of both worlds if you’re into fly­weight Bri­tish road­sters that de­liver their thrills at real-world speeds. It feels a lot more us­able than the P-type Mid­gets that went be­fore (par­tic­u­larly where brak­ing and chang­ing gear is con­cerned), but it still packs in plenty of the raw, ana­logue thrills that were in­creas­ingly di­alled out of MG’s post-war mod­els. We still think that the later TD model is the sweet spot of the T-type range when it comes to blend­ing B-road fun with real-world ac­ces­si­bil­ity, but we reckon you’ll struggle to emerge from a stint in a TA with­out a dirty great smile on your face. It’s un­com­pro­mis­ing, cer­tainly, but enor­mously en­ter­tain­ing, too.
