The GT version of the MGB was introduced in October 1965, three years after the MGB Roadster. Known affectionately by the museum staff as “the divorce model”, this MGB was sectioned into two halves for display at the launch of the MGB GT at the Earl’s Court Motor Show in 1965.
The British Motor Museum (Heritage Motor Centre)
The Heritage Motor Centre (now re-named as the British Motor Museum) is a motor museum and research centre, located adjacent to the Jaguar Land Rover Gaydon Centre near Gaydon in Warwickshire. The centre is open to the public, and houses a collection of important vehicles, celebrating Britain's motoring heritage. It boasts the world’s largest collection of British Cars; nearly 300 cars in its collection which span the classic, vintage and veteran eras (LinkExternal link pdf list of vehicles in the collection).

The collection, now cared for by the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust, is housed in a spectacular, purpose-built museum which opened in 1993. The building, with its art deco design is on the site of the former RAF Gaydon airfield in South Warwickshire, which was home to the Rover Group's design, technology and testing ground.
