The Triumph Spitfire was originally devised by Standard-Triumph
to compete in the small sports car market which had opened up with
the introduction of the Austin-Healey Sprite. Triumph's idea was to
use the mechanics from their small saloon. the Herald. to underpin
the new project. Italian designer Michelotti was commissioned for
the new design and came up with a traditional. swooping body as
well as a single-piece front end which tilted forwards to offer
unrivalled access to the engine. It was a huge success and three
subsequent variants ensued. the last of which was the Spitfire Mk.
IV complete with a 1500cc engine. Top speed was now at the magical
100mph and 0 to 60mph was reached in 13. 2 seconds. The last one
ever to be produced was never used and now resides in the Heritage
Motor Museum at Gaydon.

Presented in spectacular condition. this 1979 Triumph
Spitfire 1500 has been the subject to a fully documented and
photographed ground-up restoration and is described by the vendor
as in 'as new' condition. Finished in signal red with brown and
beige interior. this stunning Spitfire is supplied with a V5C
registration document. an MoT test certificate which expires in May
2015 and a comprehensive file containing written details. a
photographic record and invoices of the rebuild. With nearly 96. 00
cars made for both the UK and USA. this must represent one of the
finest; not only because it is in excellent condition throughout
but also because it has been restored to the highest of
standards.
