Spitfire 1500, 1977

Spitfire 1500, 1977

The Triumph Spitfire 1500, a true sports car whose classic lines express the harmony of power and grace which is the car's hallmark. The Spitfire is one of the few cars that can give you the refinements of modern motoring with traditional sports car excitement. Thorough engineering and careful attention to detail combine to give genuine ruggedness and performance with remarkable comfort and safety.

The Spitfire's distinguished 1493 cc engine is incredibly strict with its fuel-but enormously generous with its power. Developing 71 b.h.p. at 5,000 r.p.m. the sharp, confident acceleration can take you up to the 100 mph mark. And steady cruising at 50 mph can give you real economy, enhanced further by the optional overdrive-up to 50.6 miles to the gallon. (Performance figures from Autocar).

Safety and reliability are Spitfire watchwords. The all-round independent suspension, positive and accurate rack and pinion steering, radial tyres and an anti-roll bar up front-all make for cornering and roadholding both carefree and firm. And the 9 inch discs on the front wheels combined with drums on the rear give you the kind of braking power to match the Spitfire's vivid performance.

The chassis has a double backbone of braced steel. And the windscreen is laminated for extra safety. The Spitfire is built for safety throughout. It has a new matt black driver's door mirror and windscreen wipers. At the front a moulded black spoiler gives added high speed stability, and the wrap round, chromium plated bumper and plastic coated under-riders give proper impact protection.

The back, too, is protected by a wrap round bumper. Reversing lights and hazard warning lamps are standard Spitfire equipment. A generous and convenient boot with an automatic light and a full 7 cu. ft. of space is just one part of the many practical and well-designed qualities which the Spitfire has in abundance both outside and inside.
