4 ways the Triumph Spitfire reflects greater value

More power The Spitfire outperforms every other sports tar in its class. It sprints from 0-60 in 15.4 seconds. Reaches a top of 92 mph. The reason ? A version of the Triumph Herald 1147 cc engine that develops a potent 63 brake horse power.

More stop To keep a tight rein on the Spitfire’s energy, 9-inchdiameter front-wheel disc brakes are a standard fitting. No fade. No hesitancy in the rain. A Spitfire travelling at 30 mph can be pulled up in little more than 10 yards.

More comfort The Spitfire cares for your creature comforts. The windows wind up. The scats cushion your progress in deep upholstery. The hood firmly vetos any intrusion from the weather. The Spitfire gets you home and dry.

More control Each wheel on the Spitfire is independently sprung. Good for cornering: the back end won’t go careering across to the other kerb. Good for rough going: the Spitfire will never shy away from the bumps.

THE FOUR FEATURES above are enough to recommend the Spitfire to any discriminating sports-car buyer. Lavishly, the Spitfire beasts still more refinements. A turning circle of only 24 ft. In town, it means you can wiggle into parking spaces other cars have to pass by. Make .a U-turn where other people are wrestling with three-pointers. Out of town, a 24-ft turning circle Can save the Spitfire

precious seconds in time-trials and rallies.

There’s more. A chassis that is braced at every stress point to keep the Spitfire in good shape, however tough the going. Full instrumentation, including rev counter. A detachable windscreen. And good looks that are as pretty as they are practical. (The. Spitfire is as-aerodynam ic as its namesake.) And a sleek hard-top is now available.

Ring your nearest Standard-Triumph dealer and arrange a trial drive. You’ll find that what you have read here is no overstatement. The Spitfire is very, very good value for money. And that’s the only salesmanship you’ll be faced with.
