1970 Triumph TR6


Specifications


Description

 

The Triumph TR6 ranks as one of the most popular British sports cars ever made!

It was basically a re-skinned TR5, complete with fuel-injected, six-cylinder engine mounted to an IRS chassis. Regular coachbuilder Giovanni Michelotti was unavailable, so German firm Karmann stepped up to the plate instead, producing a sharp redesign, but still utilising the same body tub.

If you are looking forward to open-top motoring, you'd do well to consider a TR6.

The bare facts make a lot of sense – superb back-up from both clubs and specialists. For the more hard-nosed buyer, a decent TR6 will make a good investment too – the rarity and desirability of the preceding TR5 has seen prices of that model skyrocket in recent years. A knock-on effect being that the TR6 is following suit as people cotton onto the fact they are pretty much the same car underneath.

Prices have certainly strengthened over the last few years, and sure are rising. Getting in now should prove a shrewd investment.

When describing a car, we always put a lot of thought in how to describe it.

The car that the term ‘last of the hairy-chested British sports cars' was perhaps designed for, the TR6 has been a firm favourite for over 40 years.

Triumph rocked the motoring world by announcing the first British petrol injection sports car – the TR5 P.I. Then came along the TR6 P.I., bringing new style, new features and new status to fuel injection motoring.

The TR6 was created for that person who knows what motoring is all about; who is mature enough to appreciate superb engineering; who is eager to accept both the thrills and the responsibilities of power motoring allied to superb road holding. In the hands of such a person, the TR6 P.I. is one of the most responsive sports cars in the world – at any price.

Car will be sold WOF’d and Registered.
