Born out of the imagination of Cecil Kimber in the early 1920s, the M.G. became the most beloved of British sports cars on both road and track during the 1930s.
INSIDE THE OCTAGON, M.G.: 1921-1945 was a fascinating portrait of the pre-war M.G. Car Company painted by people who were there during M.G.’s magic years.
Through interviews and rare archival footage of pre-war M.G.s, viewers experienced the quest for the 100-mph “baby car,” the thrill and danger of pre-war racing, the family of M.G. workers, and the development of the most successful British sports car ever built!
