High bid of $62,000 at 2013 Mecum Auctions - Monterey. (did not sell)
Nuccio Bertone used a pair of MG TD frames and clothed them with a coupe body designed by designer Franco Scaglione. The cars made their debut at Turin in 1952 where they caught the attention of American industrialist S.H. 'Wacky' Arnolt. A deal was struck for production versions, and the first examples were on display at New York in 1953.

In similar fashion to Bertone's cars, the Arnolt versions utilized the MG TD chassis and a XPAG engine that developed nearly 55 horsepower. Arnolt planned on producing 200 examples with a price tag of $3,145, but MG phased out the TD chassis and engines in favor of the new TF. In total, just 103 Arnolt MGs were produced, with 67 being coupes and 36 convertibles

This example has been given a nut-and-bolt restoration with period correct details. It has the correct Shorrock supercharger, correct Marchal lighting, and new Borrani Alloy wheels. Inside is Connolly leather with wool carpeting.
