The MG P-type is a 2-door sports car produced between 1934 and 1936. Most of the cars were sold as roadsters, but an aerodynamic Airline coupe version was also available. The P-type was also available as a 4-seater variant, which suffered from a lack of power and poor rear ground clearance. There were 2 engines to choose from for the car, the 0.85-litre I4 version (found in PA models) and the 0.94-litre I4 version (found in PB models). The engines were mated to a 4-speed gearbox that drove the rear wheels.

The MG PA was powered by a 0.85-litre I4 engine with 36 hp (27 kW). This allowed the car to reach a top speed of 119 km/h and accelerate from 0 to 80 km/h in 20 seconds. A total of 1973 examples of the PA model were produced, of which 27 were converted to the PB model.
