Alto was a British cars and kits manufacture. The company was founded by David Gornall founded in 1985 in Preston, Lancashire. It was named Alto Component Cars. It produced two models under the brand name Alto — the Boxer and Duo.
The Alto Boxer produced only few years — from 1994 to 1997. It was manufactured exclusively by Alto Component Cars. This was a very small convertible with the four-cylinder engine from the Mini. About twelve copies were made.
Just one quote from the brochure: “The Alto Boxer is probably the ultimate body conversion for the Mini saloon.” With starting prices of 695 GBP ex VAT, the market clearly thought differently.
