Meet a Jaguar powered Austin Healey ‘Bug Eye’ Sprite which was built at an unlimited cost, and still exists in Australia where it has been for many decades – unseen.
The car has most been forgotten, but apparently was built in England with major engineering input from Cosworth.
The coachwork, trim and all other items were beautifully finished, but the idea of shoehorning an XK Jaguar engine into a tiny Sprite certainly was an adventurous one.
How many more outrageous specials like this one are out there undiscovered I wonder?
Does anyone know where this car lives now?
