Triumph Spitfire MK 3
Introduced in 1967, the Spitfire Mark III, also designed by Giovanni Michelotti, was the first major facelift of the range. A sharpened front and stronger contours were the model for the appearance of the following generations.
The most important innovation that distinguishes the MK3 from the MK2 is the new four-cylinder engine, which gave the model better performance. The small format of the nippy two-seater remained unchanged, but was still convincing with a well-considered and equally well-designed construction.
Visually, the MK III is notable for its radiator grille, which is no longer divided into two parts, and for its higher bumpers, which became necessary due to new crash safety requirements. The equipment changed especially with regard to the soft top, which was now designed as an easy-to-operate folding top.
With a 1.3-litre engine and 75 hp, the sports car reaches 160 km/h and has a four-speed gearbox, of which the second, third and fourth gears are synchronised. With this performance, the MK III is a comparatively fast car for its time.
A modernised version of the MK III is the MK IV (1300). In this model, the 1300cc engine was throttled down to 63 hp and now has a top speed of 155 km/h. The rear end has more angular contours and the car is slightly larger over all.
Structurally, like the previous MK IV version, the MK1500 is quite tight and the seating position, as before, is very low. The Spitfire 1500 was created by combining the body of the MK IV with the new 1500 cm3 four-cylinder engine, which was also used in the Dolomite. The engine power increased only slightly to keep the distance to the TR series. Nevertheless: The 72 hp under the bonnet still bring the Spitfire to a top speed of 160 km/h.
Triumph in motorsport
In 1964 and 1965, Triumph took part in the 24 Hours of Le Mans with performance-enhanced Spitfires that could reach top speeds of 210 km/h. The 1964 season was marked by accidents, but the 1965 season was successful: a class victory and a second place in the smallest category were achieved because of the reliability of the vehicles.
