The MG Q-Type or MG QA was a racing car manufactured by MG in 1934. The suspension was based on that of the K3 Magnette , but was narrower and had the axes of the NA / NE magnet . The four-cylinder engine had the block of the PA / PB Midget, but another crank shaft for an engine capacity of 746 cc, wherein the stroke of 83 mm was reduced to 71 mm. There was also a Sprint version fitted with a Zoller supercharger whose performance 146 bhp (107 kW) achieved power of almost 200 hp / liter. corresponded. At that time, this was the highest specific power of an engine in the world.
Around only eight copies were made because the cars were very expensive at £550 to £650 and the rigid axles had difficulty coping with the engine power. The single-seater version reached with George Harvey-Noble as a driver a lap speed of 122 mph (195 km / h) in Brooklands , the two-seater still 192 km / h.
