Austin Healey Sprite – Bugeye/Frog Eye

 

"Small and iconic British “two seater roadster”. Suited in her “old English white”, with superb quality red interior, grabbing the wooden steering wheel (on right side obviously, it’s an original English car…) you will feel like a Sir running through the English country yard. The small but “happy” engine will surprise you for rapid revving and incredible “raspy notes” on the exhaust. Gearbox has short stick and easy to find 4 gears that require your Gentleman Driver touch and the handling on a curvy road is that of the funny car you imagined since the first glance you gave her. Top off, sun, wind and you won’t never get off.”
