Featuring better handling and a smoother style, the Spitfire Mk 4 arrived in 1970. Completely re-skinned and re-trimmed, it was a much more refined car than its predecessors. Slower than the Mk III it replaced, due to modifications for the new tighter American regulations, the MkIV inspired the final modification of the model, the 1500. Launched in late 1974, this car with its 1493cc power plant would reach the magic ton and ran successfully until 1980 when production finally closed. All Triumph 1500 s were fitted with an under-bumper, chin spoiler.
