BOND Equipe 2-litre
Having built a Herald-based sports coupe, it was only logical that Bond would try something similar with the Vitesse chassis. The result, in 1967, was the Equipe GT, also known as the 2-Litre. The styling of the glassfibre/steel-panelled vehicle was completely different to Bond’s previous Equipe; more square-rigged and heavier. However, the extra weight didn’t matter too much as the additional power of the Triumph six-pot (95bhp at first, 104bhp from 1968) gave this specialist sportscar adequate performance, with 100mph easily obtainable.
