First off. what you see here is NOT a resto-mod or hot-rodded 1959 Austin Healey 100. It is rather a new automobile. This car has redefined what the Big Healey might have become. Every detail is developed to perfection. every line a testament to the purity of the original design. Powerful. stiff and nimble. neutral handling. good brakes. comfortable seating.

As their final project. legendary TrackTech Enterprises have further developed the engineering of the classic. using the incredibly beautiful Donald Healey designed body combined with today's mechanics. It is a ground-up re-engineered. newly built car by a professional race car fabrication shop. still based on the (heavily reinforced) chassis of the Healey and maintaining the original steel/aluminium body panels. The idea was to eliminate all the issues the original car had - from grilled feet to stiff backs - from nose-heaviness to anemic power - and transform one of the most beautiful automotive creations of all times into a stunning driver that is docile on the road and mind-boggling on a track. Several automotive professionals drove the car and were nothing but amazed.

It has to be "the most beautiful Healey I have ever seen" (Russ Keep. Section Head. Austin Healey Club of America). Keith Deyer. former Chief Engineer GM Proving Grounds said: "This car handles better than many modern cars. It is very balanced and civilized. The breathtaking power is totally under control".

You may have seen the Jaguar E-Type segment on Top Gear. The original E-Type  wouldn't start but the Eagle Speedster became the most desirable car ever in the mind of Jeremy Clarkson. The Speedster costs 500. 00 Pounds. Or look at a Singer Porsche at a similar price tag. Now. a true Healey enthusiast will enjoy the same concept.
