The GT6 was effectively a GT version of Triumph's Michelotti-designed Spitfire and would have started life with the same engine (and been called GT4) had the performance of the prototype not proved inadequate, due to the additional weight of the GT shell. With the more powerful 1998cc straight-six engine fitted from the Vitesse the GT6 had 98bhp on tap and could sprint to 60mph sprint in 10 seconds and on to a top speed of 110mph, thereby comfortably outpacing its main rival, the MGB. Some 40,926 examples were made - 13,042 of which were the MKIII variant. Undervalued for many years, the pretty, affordable, easily repaired GT6 is now gaining momentum.
