Triumph Spitfire

In Progress

The club’s newest project is our conversion of a 1969 Triumph Spitfire to a 100% electric vehicle. The vehicle was based on a design produced for Standard-Triumph in 1947 by Italian designer Giovanni Michelotti.

Work Done:

  • The construction of one car body from the bottom half of one car and the top half of another
  • The placement of 12 electric batteries in various compartments of the vehicle
  • The positioning and connecting of the controller, transmission, and DC-DC convertor to allow the car to operate efficiently
  • Rewiring of the front and rear lighting systems
  • Repair of brake and acceleration systems
  • Rewiring of the dashboard to suit EV readings
