The Daily Telegraph article says "the top spot goes to the MGBGTV8. First offered in 1973, it swapped the standard car's four-cylinder engine for River's V8. This brought a big increase in performance, yet didn't upset the handling because the all-alloy V8 was barely any heavier than the four." The V8, with a de-tuned 130hp, has 200 lb/ft of torque that makes all the difference. With 0-60 in 7.7 seconds it was supercar territory in 1974.

The other rankings were: MGB Roadster (2), MG TC (3), MGA (4), MG ZT (5), MGF (6), MG Maestro Turbo (7), MG Midget (8), MG ZA Magnette (9) and MG 14/28 (10). See the article. More
