Spitfire Mk IV, the slowest of the models. Or maybe not…

Change the character of your car. With today's cars - aseptic and perfect as they are - it is almost impossible, but not with the Spitfire which is something more than a beautiful roadster: the Spit is a nice toy which offers itself to these things, especially when there is the passion, the curiosity and the desire to learn and to compete with ourselves.
