TRIUMPH VITESSE 2-LITRE MK II

2-door saloon, convertible.

Thank goodness, this one has the revised rear suspension with lower wishbones; dampers lever-arm rather than telescopic. Carburation and overdrive as for MK I, but power now 104bhp. New horizontal-bar grille and new boot trim panel. Fun, but don't expect more than 25mpg, and there's no more room than in a Herald. A very few Vitesse estates were made, but never officially.
