The A90 Atlantic
produced by the Austin Motor Company was a sporting four seat roadster (1948 to 1950) or two door coupĂ© (1949 to 1952). It was the first post-war car engineered from scratch by Austin, and one of the first on the market in the UK.
The Atlantic was designed to appeal to American tastes with art deco styling, chrome accents, and a "flying A" emblem at the front of both front fenders and a centrally mounted single spotlight just above the grille.
