Costello MGs in the News 2020

Roger Cook to part with his MkIII GT​

Said by Ken Costello to be 'easily the best example in existence' and extensively developed by him personally over a number of years, this Costello boasts every upgrade ever produced - and then some! This seminal piece of Costello history is truly unique and has recorded only 14,500 miles since Ken built it. For personal reasons, owner Roger Cook has reluctantly decided to part with it.

Read here for an overview of this impressive beast and its full technical specifications here. This is truly one of a kind and represents an excellent opportunity to enjoy an MGB as it should have been. 

Please get in touch with Lawrence if you are interested in making an offer.

Happy New Year!

Greetings to all Costello owners and aficionados around the world. Activity and interest in our favourite MG marque appears to have increased in 2019. A browse through the 2019 News Archives will show more Costello cars appeared to have changed hands certainly since this website was born in 2006. We had a 'garage-find' come to light after decades of dry storage, several cars change hands on the Continent and one or two emerge from lengthy and fastidious restorations.

And of course we had another successful Gathering, a re-run of the Heather Run in North Yorkshire - a popular if a bit windy event! is generously supported by those who have a Premium Listing - that is, a section dedicated to their car with as much history as the current owner wishes to share, along with five photographs. The minimal sum paid by these Costello Community members keeps our website free of adverts and spam, and pays for the hosting fees. Many thanks to those of you who continue to support the site - one which often receives accolades from journalists and classic car specialists alike. 

We look forward to more activities in 2020, another Gathering and perhaps more Costellos emerging from restoration.

Happy New Year to everyone with happy and safe motoring.
