MG ND Magnette Two-Seater
In early 1934, MG launched the N-Type Magnette, replacing the prior F-Type Magnas, L and K-Types in MG’s diverse model line. Built for performance, the N-Type was fitted with a modified 56-horsepower, 1,271 cc six-cylinder engine from the KD, with a beefed-up chassis. According to reliable estimates, just 737 N-Types were built between 1934 and 1936, and of these, an estimated 21 to 24 units were fitted with K2 alloy roadster bodies. Some were supercharged and after the iconic K-Type, the N-Type was the most successful MG racing model of its era, most notably winning the 1934 Tourist Trophy.
This car was auctioned off by RM Auctions in January of 2010 at the Arizona Biltmore Resort & Spa, Phoenix, Arizona.
