Auction Sales History


1932 MG F Magna F2 – sold for €83,440
the charm of the present model, styled a “Foursome Coupé”, is enhanced by the enclosed bodywork allied to the car’s small volume. Just three examples of this rare version of the MG F – nicknamed the ‘Mini Black Train’ – have survived.
It is in fine original condition, with patina that accentuates its elegant appearance, and is in splendid working order. The sunroof and apple-green interior, with its fold-down rear seats, are in perfect harmony with the aura of this handsome Coupé. The car has clocked up limited mileage since its beguilingly sonorous engine was restored, and retains its original number-plates, corresponding to its UK registration.
