Superbly prepared and cleverly engineered little club racer Mass racing engine on triple Webers with Dyno readout 188 BHP Substantial history file with invoices from 2009 Fully re-worked independent suspension. Custom roll-cage and bespoke interiorWell presented in Metallic Blue. Looks just right and you know what they sayInstantly dubbed `the poor man's E-Type', the wonderful GT6 was styled by Giovanni Michelotti in response to a brief from Triumph to produce a GT version of the Spitfire. Much more than a Spitfire with a hard top, it featured a fastback body that was so aerodynamically efficient that it was later copied by the Competition Department at Triumph for the 'works' Spitfire entries at Le Mans. The GT6 shared the same powerful 2-litre six-cylinder engine with the Triumph Vitesse and with 105bhp on tap, could reach 60mph in 10 seconds and topped out at 112mph - figures that comfortably trounced the rival MGB. Launched in 1966, the first cars had the same wayward swing-axle rearsuspension as the Spitfire and the Herald but this was ditched in the MkII versions of 1968 for a more conventional reversed lower wishbones set up.Offered here we have a delightful little 1970 GT6 club-racer.In our vendor's words;"This car has been totally engineered for mechanical grip and performance. The two-litre straight six has been built by MASS Engineering and comes with dyno sheets showing 188 bhp. In order to use this power, it has a Frontline Ford Type-9 gearbox and a Sierra Diff with an uprated clutch. The maintenance of this car has been in the hands of Blaze Motorsport who have redesigned the rear suspension to a double wishbone configuration with uprated uprights. The car also has a custom built roll cage and Nitron 3-way adjustable coil over dampers allowing for adjustment for any circuit or driving preference. The car has been rewired with a Silech Motorsport loom, red top battery, heated front screen and an Accusump oil protection system. Both the engine and gearbox have onlydone a couple of hours since they were last refreshed. The Tillett seat gives great support and a comfortable driving position.The GT6 was campaigned in CSCC Swinging Sixties with a number of class wins and was always very competitive. There was huge expenditure on this car to get it to today's standard all of which is documented in the extensive history file."Nicely finished in a medium Metallic Blue with a White stripe, nosecone and wheels, this well-prepared GT6 looks, every inch, a class winner and offers amazing value for someone seeking a low-cost entry into motorsport.
