Used Austin-Healey Sprite Cars
Austin-Healey Sprite is a small open sports coupe. About the machine announced in the press company of the British Motor Corporation (BMC) in Monte Carlo may 20, 1958, shortly before the Monaco Grand Prix. The car was designed for a wide circle of consumers and positioned as a low-cost sports model, to become the successor of the sports version of the pre-war Austin Seven. The Sprite was developed in the company Donald Healey, which received the right to mark from the producers of the BMC. For the first time "lyagushonki" went on sale for the price £ 669, they were used in light engines Austin of A series, as well as many other components of existing vehicles, which made it possible to reduce costs.
Sprite is made at the factory of sports cars MG in Abingdon, and it was inevitable that the success of the "frog" will generate a design of new version of the vehicle MG, known as the Midget. It was the revival of the name of a popular pre-war models. Enthusiasts often now apply to cars Sprite and MG Midget under the General name "Spridgets".
