Sounds from MGCF

Welcome to this new page (The "Bienvenue" you just listen means welcome in French) where you can listen to sounds recorded with lots of care by our Sound Engineer, Christian BERTHIER (member of the Club, thanks again Christian !) of some of our MG's.

We have recorded three models:

MGB 1800 with Weber carburetor DC0E 45 = Engine type 18V

Midget 1275 with 2 SU + a very special exhaust = Moteur type 12V

MGB 1800 with 2 HS4 carbs = Engine type 18V too, recorded in his garage by the owner, but good warm sound !

A funny use is to compare these sounds with yours or others around the world. 16 files !

Three types of sound for each car:
