The rubber bumper cars may not be the most sought after of the MGB range, but at the time their introduction was a necessity to comply with US impact and headlight regulations. This included raising the ride height by 25mm. Later cars were fitted with an anti-roll bar to improve handling. The LE was introduced in 1980 with a production run was just 1000 cars, of which just 421 were roadsters.

The MG used a B-Series engine of 1798cc which had twin carbs and produced 95 bhp at 5500 rpm, giving the roadster a top speed of around 105 mph.
