Prof. Krish Bhaskar is at it again.

Losing the bid for MG Rover to Nanjing did not keep him down for long. Now, he unveiled a concept called "Project Tempest", an Austin Healey 3000 inspired roadster. The professor's plans call for a base model that starts around £25,000 which will sprint from 0-60mph in less than 5 seconds and a performance model that is capable of a 12sec 0-100-0 roundtrip.

While he could neither confirm nor deny that the car will be a Healey at the moment, it is clear that is his intention — "I am currently in discussions with a number of potential partners, to re-establish a well known brand from the heyday of the British motor industry." Geeee, I wonder what other well known defunct British car make he could be talking about ;)
