Austin - Austin Maestro
The Austin Maestro was British Leylands replacement for the Allegro and Maxi in 1982. The Maestro was the hatchback 4 door and the notch backed body version became the Montego. Designed from scratch with the idea of securing a solid foundation for British Leyland, which was UK Government owned. The engine originally intended for it was not completed in time so the E series engine of the Maxi was used instead, the later S series engine being completed for 1984. Maestro production continued to 1991.
