    It was an Austin Healey but Hammond referred to it as a "Midget" due to it looking similar to the MG Midget built by MG.

    If it wasn't a Corvette then it was probably the Ford GT.

    it was either a corvette or the ford GT.

    Ford GT - only a few in UK iirc and they will set you back 100+K
    Corvette - 40 50 k

    A lovely Triumph Spitfire You can pick up decent MOT'd ones for £1-1.5k, something I will be doing later on this year.

    Jeremy's car was an Austin Healey Sprite, which was a rebadged MG Midget. Pretty little cars, but not to be confused with the glorious Austin Healey 3000:
