This beautiful little sports car was styled by the Italian stylist Michelotti. Initially based on the Triumph Herald mechanicals the Spitfire competed successfully in rallies in Europe and was raced in North America.
The Triumph Spitfire was rivalled by the MG Midget but most observers feel that the Spitfire was a more sophisticated car with its fully independent suspension
, wind up windows and optional removable steel hardtop.
Servicing was made easy by the Spitfire's tilt forward bonnet which included the wheel arches giving full access to the engine and front suspension
, similar to the E-Type Jaguar bonnet.
