The Austin-Healey is a British sports car, created in 1952 as a joint venture between the engineer Donald Healey (the Donald Healey Motor Company) and the Austin division of the British Motor Corporation (BMC).
Austin-Healey cars were produced until 1972 when the 20-year agreement between Austin and Healey ended. The Austin-Healey models included the Austin-Healey 100, Austin-Healey 100-6, Austin-Healey 3000 and Austin-Healey Sprite.
The Austin-Healey was raced extensively by the Donald Healey Motor Company at Le Mans and at Sebring and the Healey models raced in club racing in D, E, F, G, and H production classes, winning National Championships in all classes.
In 1953, a streamlined Austin-Healey set several land speed records at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah, USA. The Austin name is now owned by Nanjing, which bought the assets of MG Rover Group in 2005.
