Triumph Sports Cars
Although Triumph's sporting heritage can be traced back to the 1920s, its greatest success began with the introduction of the TR2 in 1953. Other models -- such as the Spitfire, GT6, and TR Series -- followed on the heels of this initial success, and even came to represent the quintessential British sports car.
This colorful history recounts the design, engineering, and sales successes of Triumph's popular models. Vivid photography and lively prose follow these British sports cars from their technical development, promotion, and motorsport conquests (with drivers like Stirling Moss and Bob Tulius), to Triumph's last hurrah with the V-8-powered TR8 and ultimate decline under the auspices of British Leyland.
