The stylist of the Austin Allegro, Harris Mann, said of the car that ‘It took a lot of stick, but it wasn’t that bad a car … The trouble was that every one off the line was different in some way, thanks to quality control.’ As a result, few have bothered to explore the little Austin’s background; what it was designed to achieve, how it became the way it was, and what happened to make it so infamous.

Austin Allegro – An Enthusiast’s Guide redresses the balance, telling the Allegro’s tale of grand designs, high hopes, management compromises, failed dreams, industrial unrest, national ridicule and finally, redemption. Now experiencing something of a comeback as a cheap and cheerful classic, the book provides ownership advice and buying information for all models.
