Drive System:

Michelotti restyled the Spitfire for the 1970s using many cues from the recently launched Stag. Only the sills and door skins were carried over from the MkIII, A change to swing-spring rear suspension made a vast difference to roadholding. The engine is often said to have been de-tuned from Mk3 spec, but in fact only the system of measuring output changed – from SAE to DIN – so the drop from 75bhp to 63bhp was not a real one. The MkIV was slower though, thanks to both extra weight and the taller gearing used to improve economy.
