Triumph Vitesse 2-Litre MkIIClassic Car
Engine revisions left the capacity changed for the MkII Vitesse, but power was up by almost 10%. Thankfully this time Triumph saw fit to revise the rear suspension with lower wishbones, making the handling safer near the limit. Visually, a three-bar grille is the instant giveaway that you’re looking at a MkII. It was a poor seller as people were by now attracted to more modern cars like the identically priced Hillman Hunter (how times change). Convertibles are worth a 50% premium, but make sure you buy a real one. The commission plate should have the code ‘CV’ on it.
