Austin-Healey X230 (X300), 1960. The X230 was an experimental prototype with twin headlamps, De Dion rear suspension, rack and pinion steering and a number of other upgrades over the Austin Healey 3000. Controversy surrounds the fate of the original prototype which in all likelihood was dismantled after it was rejected for production. However more recently it seems some parts from the original X230 may have been used to rebuild a Austin Healey 3000 which may subsequently have been “passed off” as the original X230 prototype
