The Story of this car

In the early sixties the Triumph had in mind to produce a new model able to overcome the growing success of the Austin-Healey Sprite and MG Midget.

There were no doubts on the engine and the chassis (strictly separated from the body), both derived from those of the small Herald, but the line was creating many problems.
After the success of the Herald drawn almost by accident and quickly by Giovanni Michelotti, the Triumph decided to consult still at the Turin designer to define the new spider.
Michelotti made a masterpiece and the prototype presented in 1962 at Earls Court in London received the approval of all. 
The engine was the well-known 4-cylinder in-line with camshaft side of Herald derivation 1147cc. Fuelled by two SU carburettors, the maximum power increased to 63cv.

For the new Spider, whose production started only in 1964, he was chosen the name Spitfire, in honor of combat aircraft of the Royal Air Force, who, during World War II defeated the German air force, avoiding the Nazi invasion.

The first modifications were made in 1965. New grille with revised grille, new door handles with lock on both sides, coated the floor carpeted and padded seats. 
The engine, thanks to a new camshaft and the system of modified exhaust earned 4cv (for a total of 67cv).

In 1974, to adopt the anti-pollution standards and reduce fuel consumption (due to the contingent of the oil crisis) Triumph intervened to "calm" the engine. The engine capacity grew from 1296 to 1493cc, but the power remained firm in 75cv version for Europe, while down only 55cv in the US version (where, to meet the stringent emission regulations, was adopted feeding single carburetor).
The only other changes concerned the painting in matt black tail frame and contours of the rear fenders and the adoption as standard headrest and overdrive. Production ended in 1980.

The story of this car

The Beetle was created to request Hitler to help the German people to have a car. Hitler commissioned Ferdinand Porsche in 1934 to design a car for the average German family, which had a consumption of no more than 7 liters. per 100 km, which was air-cooled, it was able to achieve and maintain for long journeys the speed of 100 km / h and that its cost was no higher than 1,000 brands.

It is the beginning of the adventure that has meant that the beetle was the best-selling car in the world and the longest-running production.
In 1970 stops the production of the convertible version of the Beetle while out production engine 1500 cc. The sedan version instead continues to be still produced for many years, always with engines 1200 cm³ and 1300 cm³.
