1957 Austin-Healey 100-6

The 100-6, launched in 1956 to replace the 100-4, quickly got a bad reputation for being slower than its predecessor despite its new 6 cylinder engine. Austin-Healey quickly made steps to rectify this shortcoming, and in 1957 launched a re-designed, 6 inlet-port head design. This release would later be known as the 6-Port Head, and was sold as a factory option for owners of the 1956 100-6. Austin-Healey started labeling the updated 1957 Austin-Healey 100-6 with the name Mille Miglia after the famous Italian auto race in Brescia.
