The Austin Healey was a stroke of luck for all companies involved. Leonard Lord, the then "Mr. Austin", got an attractive sports car that could use up the drive trains of his shop keeper Austin A90. For Donald Healey this agreement provided the opportunity to build one of his designs in large numbers and to look for motoring and further development. The result is a major export and currencies earner in the form of a beautiful, solid and bad mannered character roadster.

- Austin Healey BN1 to BJ8 (1953-1968)
- Austin Healey Sprite (1958-1971) and MG Midget (1961-1979) The AH Sprite was announced by BMC in May 1958 as a low-priced sports car the "a chap could keep in his bike shed". The car was developed by Donald Healey using as many parts from the BMC group shelves as possible. The first series were very basic but sold well, due to their attractive appearance and good performance. The AH Sprite from the 2nd series got a twin brother, the largely identical MG Midget. In 1971 the cooperation with Healey endet and so did the production. The Sprite is a very rewarding and very nice to drive vehicle. The engine used in the first series, the A-Series engine, leaves enough room for optimization. Just ask your Limora sales consultant.
