"Launched in 1989, this little two-seater was derived from great, small British sports cars such as the Lotus Elan, MG Midget and Austin Healey Sprite. Using mass market-derived parts was hardly a new idea, but the Californian design studio’s Duo 101 concept, which was chosen, had the advantage of being light (960kg) with a simplicity of operation (the hood mechanism and gearchange are still class-leading)."
