The Triumph Spitfire 4, retrospectively known as the Triumph Spitfire 4 Mk. I, is a rare sight on the roads today even though they were built in greater numbers than, what later became, the Spitfire 4 Mk. II. The designation 4 referred to the four-cylinder engine with Triumph planning a future Spitfire 6 with a six-cylinder power unit. These lightweight and nimble sports cars were designed by Giovanni Michelotti, the Italian design flair still evident and resulting in them being attractive and desirable today.

This very well presented example was registered new on 7th May 1963 and has more recently been restored, fitted with the a hardtop and offered with Le Mans style wheels the Spitfire looks very well indeed. The blue paintwork presented well as does the interior and engine bay and the hardtop is also in very good condition. Acquired by the current vendor in 2013 the Spitfire was treated to much restoration work. The history file accompanying the vehicle include various sundry bills, the current registration document, and also includes a spares package. Offered to the open market needing some minor work to finish the restoration, we are sure this very well presented little Spitfire will bring huge amounts of fun to its new owner.
