Looks like a C-V8 and an Interceptor Coupe in the garage too.

I quite fancy a Vitesse with a 2.5 motor :-) Bit far to go through :-(

When it was current I remember, and used to lust after, the ‘S’ version of the Triumph Herald.
The joke at the time was that it was slower than the standard Herald because of the weight penalty of the extra carb!
The 2 Litre Vitesse was however a flyer with contemporary adverts boasting 12.5 secs to 60mph.
