A Classic for the 21st Century
The Spridget in its standard original form has always been a fun and rewarding sports car, evolving over the years in terms of performance and comfort and enjoying many motorsport successes and European tours.
Our range of performance-enhancing products has long kept its handling capabilities up to date. When Rover's superb K-series engine arrived in the early '90s, it was obvious the Spridget could also have the powertrain it needed to propel it into the 21st Century. Revered as one of the best small engines of its time, the K-Series has also found its way into the MGF, the Lotus Elite, the Caterham and countless other specials.
Frontline's first K-series Spridget was on the road in early 1995, in a standard 1.4 single-point injection version. This was impressive- but still not enough. What was wanted was a refined conversion that would be relatively simple to install with minimal modifications and no tell-tale signs.
Since that first transplant we have come a long way. We can now supply all the parts for you or specialist centre to convert your own car. Or we can custom-build you a super Sprite to your own specification.
The choices range from a moderately powerful 1.4K engine producing 120 bhp, set up for comfort and cruising, to a modified 1.8K producing over 200bhp, with brakes and a suspension to match. Another great advantage is fuel consumption - we regularly achieve 40+mpg in normal motoring.
