Work in Progress Here we collect rarities, news and specialities for all vehicles and your workshop. Almost daily supplemented, some of them are only available in very small quantities. Have a look frequently: first come, first served. Stainless steel exhaust systems for MG Strict quality control, flawless, very gloss polished, reflecting surfaces, perfect welding seams . . .
- MG T-Type: TA, TB, TC, TD and TF (1936-1955) The T-Series follows up the early 30ies Midgets, Magnettes und Magnas. And that’s what she looked like: A small, agile and uncompromising sports car. The TA was stopped by WWII, but from the TC onwards the model was a huge success in the main export market. Almost 80% of its production was sold into the US Market. Limora can help you to keep your MG T-Type running. With parts made in the UK, supplied to domestic or international customers.
- MGA (1955-1962) The MGA arose from the urgent need to replace the optically outdated MG TF models. Based on the technique and the modified frame of its predecessor, the new car was a break in the tradition which also showed in the nomenclature: the MGA was the start of a whole new era. The small sleek sports car became extremely popular, particularly outside its home country. About 90% of the production were sold overseas, which meant USA in most cases. The MGA was a true sports car: Even without crank windows and door openers he appealed with its sporty shape, pleasing performance and fair prices. Safety fast.
- MGB (1962-1980) After a very short construction period, the MGB replaced the MGA. The B was a much more modern and powerful interpretation of the classic British sports car theme and was competitive with the Triumph models. The self-supporting bodywork as a roadster and coupé, a classic line and a wide range of engines make the MGB the perfect sports car for over 500,000 buyers. Today, the vehicle continues to inspire. Although a lot of power is required for steering and gearshifting, the MGB is still competitive in terms of sport, especially with today's detailed solutions and improvements. We have not only parts, but also ideas for your MG. Have a look more often.
- MGC (1967-1969) It was obvious that the body of the MGB would have given room enough for more powerful engines. As part of the considerations of BMC, which vehicle could possibly be a successor to the rapidly aging Austin Healey, the MGC was born. With the same recipe that brought a heavy 3 liter R6 into the Austin Healey, the MGC received a huge cast-iron six-in-line engine from the depths of the Austin shelves. Extensive redesign of the MGB structure was necessary, although it is visible only through the hump on the hood. With today's tires and a supporting romanticizing view the MGC is now better rated than in the contemporary press. There are only about 9000 units being built, the market is tight. We are proud to assist in the preservation through the supply of parts.
- Austin Healey Sprite (1958-1971) and MG Midget (1961-1979) The AH Sprite was announced by BMC in May 1958 as a low-priced sports car the "a chap could keep in his bike shed". The car was developed by Donald Healey using as many parts from the BMC group shelves as possible. The first series were very basic but sold well, due to their attractive appearance and good performance. The AH Sprite from the 2nd series got a twin brother, the largely identical MG Midget. In 1971 the cooperation with Healey endet and so did the production. The Sprite is a very rewarding and very nice to drive vehicle. The engine used in the first series, the A-Series engine, leaves enough room for optimization. Just ask your Limora sales consultant.
- MGF and MG TF (1995-2005) "Worlds most enjoyable car to drive" under this working title and claim the MGF has been developed by Rover since the mid 80s. The ways the project was developed in the chronically small Rover development department fill whole books. Also the way to recall the brand MG by presenting an intermediate model MGB RV8 might be unique. When BMW took over Rover, the almost finished MGF was again on the brink of collapse. First, BMW checked whether the F was conceptually far enough away from the new BMW Z3 that it could not compete with it. When the MGF was presented to the public at the 1995 Geneva Motor Show, the surprise was huge. Nobody would have expected such a vehicle from the ailing Rover Group. The car sold well right from the start. The sporty design in combination with the very independent technology ensured that the car was well ahead of its competitors of the era. James May tested the MGF in the BBC cult show "Top Gear" and certified it "Supercar Potential". Even if that was certainly flattering, at least in the VVC version with 107kW/146HP the car was very dynamic to drive. Today the MGF is on its way to becoming a classic. We know about the constructional shortcomings of the model range and have insight into the long-term qualities of the car. With this knowledge we can say: Put an MGF aside. The MGF team of Limora helps with the parts supply and provides you with news about the last MG Roadster.
- MGR V8 (1992-1995) The success of the Mazda MX-5 clearly showed that the market for small two-seater sports cars was not as small as expected when production of the MGB was discontinued 10 years earlier. So they took the most English of all possible routes, took a Heritage body and equipped it generously in terms of engine and interior. Although the leaf spring and drum brake were heavily criticised in the trade press, 5.9 sec on 62mph was an announcement even to the supersport class. The RV8 was built from 1993-1995 in 2000, exclusively right-hand drive versions, which was an unexpected result especially in Japan. The main merit of the RV8, however, was to prepare market and brand for the new MGF, which succeeded it in 1995.
