The Triumph Spitfire is a small British two-seater sports car, introduced at the London Motor Show in 1962. The car was based on a design produced for Standard-Triumph in 1957 by the Italian designer Giovanni Michelotti. The Spitfire was largely based on the chassis, engine and running gear of the Triumph Herald sedan, but shorter and without the Herald's outriggers. The car was manufactured at the Standard-Triumph factory at Canley, in Coventry.
The Spitfire was originally designed by Standard-Triumph to compete in the small sports car market that had begun since the introduction of the Austin-Healey Sprite. The Sprite had used the base powertrain of the Austin A30/A35 in a lightweight body to create a budget sports car. The idea was to use the mechanics of the Triumph Herald to underpin the new project.
Italian designer Michelotti was commissioned for the new project and came up with a traditional design. However, in the early 1960s, Standard-Triumph had financial difficulties and was unable to put the new model into production. It was only when the company was acquired by the Leyland organization that funds became available and the car was released. The Spitfire was named after the World War II fighter plane of the same name.
