A 1954 BN1 fitted with the Le Mans kit from new is even rarer than the

Following the Austin-Healey 100's sensational debut at the 1952 Motor Show, the Works entered two mildly modified cars in the 1953 Le Mans 24-Hour race. They finished in 12th and 14th places, a praiseworthy achievement for what were recognizably production sports cars.
