"I have now received my XK8. The car is just as you described it - in excellent condition.This is the second car I have purchased from you - sight unseen. I am very happy . The quality of both cars I have purchased to date confirms my belief that you provide a first class service to your clients. We have had the opportunity to have the top down in this lovely spell of weather and a cruise around the Coromandel Peninsula - the car drives very well.Once again - thank you ."Paul Barlow, Coromandel Town, New Zealand
Cheer up if you can't afford a TR6 – the TR4 offers just as much fun and is a lot cheaper to buy and maintain.
Triumph's enduring TR4 represented something of a transition for the company's famous big-engined roadsters in the early 1960s. They were the first in the range to feature that distinctive chunky Michelotti-styled coachwork, which put them right up there with the prettiest cars of the sixties.
Launched in 1962, the TR4 looked fresh with its Italian-penned bodywork, but was, in fact, a clever re-working of a sports car line which could trace its roots back nine years. The new car's separate chassis and suspension (independent at the front with coils and wishbones, live axle and cart springs at the rear) and four cylinder engine were all much as they had been with the earlier TR2 and TR3 ranges. Though the original chassis was little changed, shims were used to broaden it slightly at the front, and the rear axle grew two inches wider. Steering was now by rack and pinion, first gear finally acquired synchromesh and engine size grew to just over 2.1-litres.

The TR4 is a stiff, precise car. A punchy slogger rather than a high revver, this car has a rough-hewn, “big banger” charm and the sort of pulling torque properties that could uproot trees.
