The Austin Healey marque was born at the London Motor Shown in 1952. Leonard Lord, then Managing Director at Austin, had bought the car shown on the Healey stand from the sports car designer Donald Healey and launched it the next day as the Austin Healey 100. The 100 was taken up with enthusiasm by the public. This beautifully shaped two-seater not only appealed particularly to the US market, which was so important for sports cars, but also fired the enthusiasm of motor racing fans world-wide. In 1958 the successor to the 100 known as the 100-6 was joined by the little Austin-Healey Sprite. This little two-seater with a 948 cc four cylinder engine was known as the Frog-Eye because its front headlamps were simply set into the top of the bonnet in order to meet the requirements of the US market regarding lamp height. The attractive Sprite, which was available as a roadster with soft or hard top, offered 43 bhp and a top speed of 130 kph. While this model was in production until 1961 over 50,000 rolled off the line. In May 1961 it was replaced by the Sprite Mk II, with its headlamps set into the corners of the front mudguards.
