Talk about a British invasion! The Triumph Spitfire, a small, two-seat, British sports car, was a hot little ride during the 1960s and 1970s. The spunky little car was first introduced at the 1962 London Motor Show and was offered as a hardtop or a convertible. Several versions of the Spitfire, designed by the Italian Giovanni Michelotti, were produced starting with the Mark 1 which rolled off the assembly lines in 1962 and ending with the Spitfire 1500 which ceased production in 1980. Cute, flirty, and sporty, the Triumph Spitfire was an iconic car of the 1960s and 1970s because they were well-built and fun to drive.
