Comment The 1300 model looked exactly like a series 3 Vixen
As the 1300 model weighed 1.625 lb, about 60 lb more than the Spitfire and had a larger front area it was not a fast car. With 0-60 mph in 16 seconds, a top speed of 90-95 mph and a price only 50 pounds cheaper than the Series 3 Vixen this was one of the more unsuccessful TVRs.
