The history of MG began nearly 90 years ago in 1924.
The famous MG initials were chosen by Cecil Kimber, the founder of MG, as a "nod" to William Morris, his employer, and the owner of Morris Garages.
Cecil Kimber also created the first line of MGs, starting by fitting coach-built tourer bodies to the Morris Cowley chassis, creating cars known as the Morris Garage Chummys.
A few years later, in 1924, he designed the 14/26 Super Sports model, the first true MG and the car that premiered the octagonal MG logo, which was registered on May 1st of 1924.
