From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Authi car company of Pamplona, Spain was founded in 1965 as a result of a collaboration between BMC (the British Motor Corporation) and NMQ (Nueva Montaña Quijano). BMC needed a way to sell their cars in Spain, which at the time had strict rules about local manufacturing of automobiles. Thus, Authi built almost identical copies of a range of Austin and Morris cars. The company survived until 1976 when the factory was sold to the SEAT car company.

AUTHI stands for Automoviles de Turismo Hispano Ingleses, but is generally written and spoken as a word rather than as an acronym.

The following cars were built by Authi:

SEAT later built the SEAT 124, SEAT 131, SEAT Panda and Lancia Beta out of the old Authi factory.
