The M.G. car company introduced its new six-cylinder Magna models in 1931, filling a gap in the firm’s catalogue between the four-cylinder Midgets and the large 2.5-liter 18/80 models. First and most popular of the Magnas were the F-Type cars, with a 1,272 cc overhead-cam six-cylinder engine, derived from that of the Wolseley Hornet, with dual carburetors. This was followed in 1933 by the K-Type Magnette, with a shortened-stroke engine improved with a stronger crankshaft and cross-flow cylinder head, available on two lengths of wheelbase. This model was quite successful in racing, particularly the supercharged K3 cars.

In March 1933, an improved Magna, designated L-Type, was introduced. Using the K-Type’s 1,087-cc six, the L-Type had a Wolseley-derived four-speed gearbox but a narrower track than the K-Types. Four body styles were available. Four-seat tourers, saloons, and a slope-back continental coupe were designated L1. A single two-seat model, a sports roadster, was called L2. All had the slanted radiator of the earlier Magnas and sweeping fenders. A total of 576 L1/L2 Magnas had been produced by the time production ceased in 1934.
