New Triumph World Record expected for Elvis Presley’s TR6

At the end of October, Auctionata will offer a Triumph TR6 formerly owned by the King of Rock ’n’ Roll. Should bidding meet the German auction house’s expectations, the green roadster – which wears the Tennessee registration plate 1-ELVIS – will become the most expensive TR6 ever sold at auction…

Headlining the ‘Riding with the King’ auction to be held by Auctionata in Berlin on 28 October 2016, the 1977 Triumph TR6 – purchased by Elvis the same year he died, possibly for girlfriend Ginger Alden – is estimated to fetch €600,000 – 1.2m, an ambitious price considering there aren’t any nostalgic bullets lodged in the dashboard. Elsewhere in the 37-lot catalogue are numerous other cars that would’ve been worthy of inclusion in The King’s automotive entourage– but you wouldn’t necessarily have to spend A-list money to make an impression on the streets of Memphis, as our ten-car selection below shows.
