For the 100th anniversary of the MG marque, Rétromobile has teamed up with the British Motor Museum and MG Club de France to organise an exceptional exhibition tracing the history of the English marque with previously unpublished archives and vehicles never before seen in France.  No fewer than a dozen of the make’s iconic vehicles (amongst them a 1925 Old MG Number One and a 1938 MG EX135) will be crossing the Channel for five days to grace the aisles of the world’s most exciting exhibition dedicated to collector vehicles and automobilia.  The legendary 1957 MG EX181, a world record breaker driven by Stirling Moss and Phil Hill, graces the 2024 poster and will also be on show for the anniversary.  Finally, the MG company itself will also be present to celebrate the centenary with a retrospective on its stand dedicated to the make’s roadsters.  Dates are 31 January-4 February 2024.
