2-door 2-seater fastback coupé.

Mk3 was really the Mk2 with the new nose and chopped-off tail of the Spitfire MkIV, and ran parallel with the four-cylinder car. Still with 104bhp and 110mph top speed, but now with re-profiled rear quarter window shapes and smarter standard wheels. Facia and seating re-touched, though no increase in space was possible. Minor visual changes for 1973, and 'lower-wishbone' rear end abandoned in favour of the Spitfire's 'swing-spring' - without noticeable loss of roadholding power. Low USA sales (only 79bhp available by 1972!) helped end its career. In the UK, though, the Mk3 was the best of this family.
