In this article we tell the story of this sports saloon which should have been the making of Triumph – but, instead, it ended up being left in production too long, and unreplaced.

Triumph Spitfire and GT6: A Guide to Originality
One good thing about the Spitfire is that you don't need to be a classic cars enthusiast to appreciate it but you just have to want to own and drive a fun, easy-to-manage roadster.
