Austin Metro prototype engineering drawings
"A fascinating find uncovered – engineering drawings of the ADO88 and LC8 projects… The differences between the original car and the pre-launch facelift are clear to see – and the fact that these drawings of the ADO88 were produced at all clearly shows just how close to production it was…
The ADO88 so nearly made it into production – and would have been BL’s bargain basement supermini campaigner. Until a last minute change of heart…
As can be seen from these images, the engineering drawings were so detailed that it must have been weeks away from having the tooling built up.
We’ve seen plenty of images of the ADO88 elsewhere, and wonder who it would have fared against the opposition – would it have been more, or less, of a success than the Austin Metro?"
