It was a small, low cost sports car designed to fill the hole in the market left by the small pre-war Austin Seven sports cars. The car was designed by the Healey Motor Company within the bounds of their partnership with BMC. It first went on sale at a price of £669.

It used a tuned version of the Austin A-Series engine and as many other components from existing cars as possible to keep the cost to a minimum.
