Description

Model history

For over 20 years, from the start of the TR2 production in 1953 to the end of the TR6 in 1976, the Triumph sports cars offered more style, performance and technical appeal than its rivals.

Restyled by Karmann, the TR6 sported a full-width nose and squared-off tail. Under the skin the cassis remained basically the same as its independently rear suspended TR4A ancestor’s while the 2.5 Litre Lucas fuel injected power unit was unchanged. Handling was improved over that of the TR5 courtesy of wider wheels and a front anti-roll bar. With its excellent performance and updated looks, the fuel injected TR6 sold strongly in Europe. The slower North American version with carburettors sold even better.

The 6-cilinder TR’s are arguably the most exciting Triumphs ever made.
