HFI Automotive, the British company which recently aquired
Healey Automotive Consultants, and with it the Healey
brand name (but not the 'Austin' name), already has plans
for a new sportscar.
Other than this designers sketch, little is known about
the car except that it will be a modern interpretation
of the original Austin Healey 3000, and it will be offered
in both coupe and convertible froms. There is also a promise
of a smaller model in the future, one using the original
Austin Healey Sprite as a role model.
Showing how serious this project is, HFI are taking £1000
($1700) deposits on the first 203 cars built. Not just
a random irregular number, 203 mph was the land speed
record set at Bonneville by Donald Healey 50 years ago.
