Named after the most famous World War II plane, the Spitfire, this model was brought out to compete with the Austin Healey Sprite, which had a huge fan base.
To save on time as well as the developmental costs involved, Triumph used the mechanicals of their popular model, the Triumph Herald. The Triumph Spitfire was designed by Italian Giovanni Michelotti, the "guru" of sports car design (he designed several Maserati, Ferrari, Lancia, and other vehicles), and debuted to great acclaim at the 1962 London Motor Show.
This 1.2-litre car became very popular among the younger generation and, in its 18-year production, made over 315,000 units. This scale model is a rendition of the Mark 2 (also written as MK II or Mk2) that was produced for three years between 1964-1967.
