In 1962 British Leyland presented the Triumph Spitfire at the London Earls Court Motor Show. The roadster was produced until 1980, first equipped with a 4-cylinder engine with 1.2 litres and 44 kW (60 hp) as well as numerous components from the Triumph Herald. This first series had a long bonnet opening to the front and a turning circle of 7.8 metres. The interior was frugally equipped and the instruments were placed in the middle, so that the vehicle could be delivered with both right and left-hand drive without major conversions. The fastening points for safety belts, not mandatory at that time, were standard. Two years later the Spitfire Mk II appeared, which was similar to its predecessor except for the higher output of 49 kW (67 hp) and the two-part radiator grille. In 1967, the Mk III was presented with a 1.3-litre engine offering 55 kW (75 hp), higher bumpers, a one-piece radiator grille and a foldable soft top to replace the detachable one of earlier models. The penultimate series IV was throttled down to 46 kW (63 hp), the speedometer moved behind the steering wheel and the body was extended. From 1974 to 1980 the model 1500 was built with a 1.5 litre engine and a small spoiler at the bow. A Spitfire won the 1965 Le Mans 24 Hours in its class for its reliability, while its opponents broke down.
