British Leyland / Austin Zanda styling study by designer Harris Mann, who went on to style the similarly 'wedgy' Austin Princess
The British Leyland Zanda was a motor show prototype produced by Harris Mann and showed to the world in 1969. This car still exists and is on display at the Motor Heritage Museum in Gaydon, Warwickshire. Mann caught the attention of BL’s upper management with this car and as a result, went on to style the Allegro, Princess and TR7…… and in my opinion, should be regarded as one of the great stylists of that era. The Allegro may not be regarded as a looker, but certainly his other designs were bold and interesting – and this Zanda show a purity of form.
