Vehicle Description

Triumph commissioned Giovani Michelotti to style a GT version of their convertible Spitfire in 1963. He obliged with a sleek fastback design, but the extra weight of the GT body challenged the Spitfire’s modest 1,147cc engine. As a result, the Spitfire GT concept was shelved. The more aerodynamic shape, however, was successfully adopted for racing duties with fibreglass iterations fitted to racing Spitfire underpinnings. Such was the success of the GT bodied race cars that the road car concept was revived in 1966. In order to overcome the performance deficits, however, the 2L straight six unit from the Triumph Vitesse was fitted. The final MKIII version of the car appeared in 1970 with the most significant changes encompassing a general tidying of the design resulting in better aerodynamics.
This example of the six-cylinder GT6 is a late MKIII iteration and better for it. The MKIII featured what many consider the best suspension set up which had proved a little compromised in earlier models. Additionally, this car has been subject to a diligent and professional restoration resulting in a very impressive example indeed.
The GT6 is becoming an iconic sportscar that is not for the feint hearted. This one was imported to Ireland in 2010, but can be returned to UK registration for £55 if required. Delivery can be arranged.
Finished in Guards Red with black interior, it is a colour combination that works well. It drives as it should, and everything is working as it should. The body off restoration ensures there is no rust. It comes with a nice file of receipts and MOTs. Complete with electronic ignition, SS exhaust, Kenlowe fans, and cut off switch. She is ready to be enjoyed, and will only increase in value in this condition. A new set of Minilite wheels are available as an optional extra. Viewing is strictly by appointment, and we are open Monday to Saturday
