Sprite MK1-4


The Austin-Healey Sprite series, across its MK1 to MK4 iterations, was exclusively produced as a convertible or roadster-style sports car, offering an open-top driving experience throughout its various marks.

Austin-Healey Sprite MK1 (1958-1961): The MK1 Sprite, often recognised as the "Frogeye" or "Bugeye" Sprite due to its unique bug-eye headlights, was a compact convertible. Its open-top design, along with a simplistic and lightweight construction, defined its character. The MK1 Sprite featured a manual soft-top roof that could be lowered for an authentic open-air driving experience.

Austin-Healey Sprite MK2 (1961-1964): The MK2 Sprite, known as the "Square Body" Sprite, continued the tradition of a convertible roadster. It underwent mechanical and cosmetic improvements while retaining its open-top design. The MK2 Sprite featured a convertible top that could be folded down manually, offering the joy of open-air motoring.

Austin-Healey Sprite MK3 (1964-1966): The MK3 Sprite, also referred to as the Mark III, retained its convertible configuration, providing enthusiasts with an open-top driving experience. Similar to its predecessors, the MK3 featured a manual soft-top roof that could be raised or lowered as desired.

Austin-Healey Sprite MK4 (1966-1971): The MK4 Sprite continued the tradition of being a convertible sports car. With its open-top design, the MK4 Sprite retained the thrill of open-air motoring. Its manual soft-top roof allowed drivers to enjoy the wind in their hair while cruising.

Throughout its different marks, the Austin-Healey Sprite series remained consistent in its convertible configuration, providing drivers with the classic enjoyment of a top-down driving experience in a nimble and spirited sports car. The convertible design was an integral part of the Sprite's appeal, offering enthusiasts an authentic roadster driving sensation.

At present, our inability to furnish pricing online stems from the dynamic nature of global economics, which has led to substantial fluctuations in the costs of parts and materials on a day-to-day basis. The intricate interplay of market forces, supply chain disruptions, and geopolitical factors has rendered pricing incredibly volatile, making it challenging to provide accurate and up-to-date figures in real-time.

As we remain committed to offering fair and transparent pricing to our customers, we find it prudent to ensure that any pricing information reflects the current market reality, hence our decision to refrain from online pricing until we can reliably provide figures that align with the ongoing fluctuations in the global economy.
