First introduced at Monte-Carlo by the British Motor Corporation (BMC) on the 20 May 1958 and intended as a low-cost model, the Sprite was designed by the Donald Healey Motor Company, which received a royalty payment from the manufacturers BMC. The low cost of £669 was achieved by using a mildly tuned version of the A-Series engine and as many other components from existing cars as possible. The cars were manufactured at the MG sports car factory at Abingdon.
This charming example was converted to Sebring specifications in 1992 by Country Lane Classics and was the first 'copy' to be made. The car features a Peter May 1380 full race engine with modified cylinder head. Running with a straight cut gearbox, uprated front and rear suspension, full roll cage and carbon fibre roof, thought to be unique, it benefits from many other modifications including Willwood four pot front calipers on larger brake discs with quick release Sebring fibreglass front, steel rear end, oil cooler. This Austin-Healey has been successfully rallied by the current owner with many class wins and overall victory in the Austin-Healey Championship in 2004. This exciting vehicle is eligible for many race series and makes an interesting track-day car. With very little modification, the car can be returned to road going specification. It is offered for sale with a tailor made un-braked aluminium tilting trailer from the Aluminium Trailer Company.
