About Bugeye Sprite

Compact, peppy, and "cute as a bug," the Bugeye Sprite is an open-air roadster legend from the Austin-Healey Spridgets gang. The compact size of this roadster was a huge selling point upon its release, with the company promoting it as a car small enough to fit in a garden shed or bike shed. Interestingly, the car's most unique feature, the headlights that earned it its bug-themed name, were the unintended result of a budget crisis at the firm. Placing them on the hood instead of on the front wings was part of a plan to make them retractable. After budget concerns left Austin-Healey skimming costs, they left the headlights static, creating the legendary profile so loved today. Available only in a two-door roadster style with an FR layout like the MG Midget, the Bugeye Sprite is still a delightful presence on the road.
