1961-1963 SUNBEAM Harrington Alpine GT
Made famous at the Le Mans 24 Hour race, the Harrington GT was essentially a Sunbeam Alpine GT with a swept back hardtop that turned the roadster into a pretty-convincing looking coupé. Of course, the reason for that shape was down do aerodynamics, and with the Harrington GT roof on it, the Sunbeam Alpine was faster down the Mulsanne straight than it would have been with the standard-steel hardtop. When the Harrington was sold as a standalone model, though, it struggled on the market, failing to dent the success of the MGB.
