The Triumph TR7 sports car was designed by Harris Mann and manufactured from September 1974 to October 1981 by the Specialist Division of British Leyland. The car was launched in the United States in January 1975, with its UK home market debut in May 1976 (huge American demand delayed the launch twice!).
The car, characterised by its "wedge" shape and swage line sweeping down from the rear wing to just behind the front wheel, was commonly advertised as: "the shape of things to come".
The 1998cc engine (based on the Triumph Dolomite 1850 bored out and fitted with larger carbs) gives the car willing acceleration through the 4 speed gearbox and the independent front suspension/rear coils are excellent giving a really engaging drive – as you would expect for any self-respecting TR.
