In the 1950s and 1960s, British sports cars ruled the road, and their charge was led by Triumphs. From the TR2, its first modern sports car, Triumph went on to produce a host of classic sports designs, such as the Spitfire, GT, and Stag, as well as more TR models, before ending with the TR7 in the late 1970s. These represented the epitome of the contemporary classic British sports car.
Fast, nimble, and gorgeous to behold, Triumphs offered the everyday motorist an exhilarating drive at a price they could afford. Popular both in the United Kingdom and the United States, the Triumph range helped define the entire genre, with sports cars today, such as the Mazda MX-5 having their roots in models like the Stag.
Illustrated throughout and written by acclaimed motoring writer and historian Graham Robson, this book guides the reader through the history of this classic British marque from its heyday in the 1960s and 1970s through to its eventual demise in the 1980s.
