Kit Heaven: Sebring International Exalt

Despite rumors of the demise of the British auto industry, you would not have felt a funereal attitude at Stoneleigh Park, south of Birmingham, this month. At a major kit-car confab, there was no shortage of small enterprises exhibiting their specialty cars, including plenty of Lotus Seven and Cobra replicas. One standout was the exotic Exalt Sebring International.

car exaltSebring International offers high-quality replicas of the Austin-Healey 3000 in addition to being a dealership for used TVR sports cars. As is often the case, one of the company leaders had an idea on how to improve the looks of the classic 1960s roadster and set out to find the necessary bits and pieces. The result was the Exalt.

Classy touches include the rear lamps from the moribund Ford StreetKa roadster and a frog-eyed front that hints at Austin-Healey's other success story, the Sprite, which was nicknamed Frogeye.

So far only a non-running prototype exists, but reaction at the show convinced Sebring to make self-build kits available by year's end.
