Healy Enigma: Best Left for Dead

In the immortal words of the horror film Pet Semetary, sometimes dead is better. This vehicle gives truth to that adage with an appearance based on the immortal beloved Healey 100 as seen through the eyes of someone with more dollars than sense. Regular kitcar showgoers may have noticed the re-appearance this season of the Healy Enigma (their spelling not ours!), which first hit the scene in 2006 before disappearing again.

The team behind the car, Martin Williamson (original importer of the Sebring International range to the UK, back in the day), Mick Snell and Joe Lamberti have been busy re-inventing it, converting it from the original Ford Granada mechanicals and Ford Cologne V6 power to Mazda MX-5 mechanicals.


  1. I’m trying to understand why you hate this car so much. The first time I saw it I was trying to figure out how I could get one. EVERYONE I’ve shown it to also thinks it looks amazing. Updated British styling with proven, reliable Japanese mechanical and electrical components. Like I said at the beginning, I’m struggling to understand what you don’t like.

    I’ve seen my first Enigma today. A V8 Lexus engine
    What an absolutely stunning looking car ! Super styling & looks with 400bhp & great handling. More production in Middlesbrough please

  3. I think it’s a great looking car in its own right without the manufacturer having to ‘pass if off’ as a ‘Healey something…’. Build your own brand, don’ try and live off someone else hard work.
