Sold for $73,700 at 2007 Gooding & Company.
Austin-Healey offered the 100 with a full compliment of options, including the full 'Le Mans' modification kit which included a pair of HD6 SU carburetors flowing into a revised manifold, cold air box, stronger top end, special advance distributor curve, and a high lift camshaft. The true 'M' version was more than just it kit, it was a race-bred machine. It included a stiffer antiroll bar and high-compression pistons, a louvered bonnet with leather straps to hold it in place. Top speed was achieved at 109 mph.

This vehicle is a 100BN2, and an excellent example of a modified 100. It was found in Northern California in the late 1980s and subsequently restored between 1990 and 1991. All major mechanical systems were rebuilt and now include a long list of M components. It is painted in black-and-red two-tone with a black leather interior with red piping. There are original gauges, a Moto-Lita steering wheel, full top and tonneau cover, and full set of optional chrome wire wheels.

In 2007, it was brought to the Gooding & Company Auction held in Pebble Beach, California where it was estimated to sell for $90,000-$120,000. It was offered without reserve, which worked well for the buyer, who purchased the car for $73,700, including buyer's premium.
