The fast road Austin A40 build is complete. The owner collected the finished car on Friday afternoon before his 800 mile drive to his home in France. The car made it without missing a beat and the freshly build 1293cc engine will now be nearly run-in. The rare left hand drive model will be spending its life on the mountain roads of the French Alps.
