"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
As British as they come, Triumph's pretty TR4 is a potent and muscular sports car, whose values are increasing steadily.
If you're looking for deadly accurate steering and handling to shame an Elise, then look elsewhere: this is definitely a sports car in the old-school (1960s) sense of the word. It can be hustled along with aplomb on twisty country roads, that's true, but in some ways this more an accomplished grand tourer than a screaming sportster. You really could imagine crossing countries in this car.
ABOUT THIS CAR
- Independent rear suspension
- All-synchromesh gearbox
- Rack-and-pinion steering
- Manual / Overdrive
- The compact, yet comfortable cabin has it all, from the classic sprung steering wheel to the myriad dials.
- Reassuringly uncomplicated, the TR4 sports a separate chassis and mostly bolt-on panels, which obviously makes home repairs and restoration that much easier.
- Two owners in New Zealand – this is a dry state classic, imported to NZ, and first registered in New Zealand in 1998, when it had a professional restoration and conversion to RHD.
- Excellent Condition Throughout
Just take a look at this car and you'll know why you want one – there's not an iffy angle or line anywhere to be seen on Michelotti's masterpiece, from the rounded front to the abrupt rear end. Factor in the grunty 2.1-litre ‘four', which elicits an evocative growl from the exhaust, and there can be few finer companions on a sunny back-road blast.
It's surprisingly practical, too sporting a spacious cabin and a particularly accommodating boot. Certainly, you could take one on a long-haul run and not have to skimp too much on your luggage allowance.
Triumph parts back-up is second to none, too, so if you can't find a particular widget for your car, chances are there's an alternative available.
Best of all, these cars are only increasing in value and the subtly upgraded, but considerably rarer TR4A (like this one) tends to be the car that many buyers actively seek out – this despite the inevitable higher asking prices. They are a particularly tempting medium-term investment. At the very least, you won't lose any money; chances are your return will improve considerably.

TRANSPORT / WORLDWIDE SHIPPING CAN BE ORGANISED ON THIS VEHICLE ON BUYER'S BEHALF AT BUYERS COST.
