About Triumph Spitfire
The Triumph Spitfire embodies all that is great and glorious about classic European sports cars. It is an affordable British two-seat open-roof sports car ideal for taking leisure drives down country roads. With a design worthy of an Italian sports car, the Spitfire sold in large quantities even though it only has a 4-cylinder engine. While the Triumph Spitfire engine has the same configuration throughout its two-decade production run, it did get bigger and better. The fastest Spitfire is the Mark III produced during the late 1960s. It carries a 1296cc I4 engine that puts out 75 horsepower and takes the Spitfire to a top speed of 95 mph, a pretty quick pace for sports cars in its generation. Almost half of the third-generation Triumph Spitfire was sold in the United States and they were so popular that Triumph kept producing them even after it introduced the Mark IV. Every model year of the Spitfire is available from reputable sellers on eBay. Even though the last one came out in 1980, you can easily find replacement parts from the wide selection on offer too.
