Triumph TRX concept which was unveiled at the 1950 London Motor
Show was a aerodynamic,
aluminium-bodied roadster based on a slightly stretched Standard
The electrically operated headlight covers were unusual for
the time and gave the TRX an extremely clean appearance from
the front. Electrically controlled hydraulics were used to adjust
the position of the bench-style seat, raise and lower the convertible
roof, and deploy the built-in hydraulic jacks.
The Triumph TRX was powered by a 2.0 litre 4-cylinder engine
with twin carburetors.
In total just 3 TRX prototypes were constructed. Two are still
in existence, while the third sadly caught fire and was destroyed.
The TRX never spawned a similarly styled production model. Instead
Triumph opted to manufacture the Triumph TR2. Both the TRX and
the TR2 were designed by Walter Belgrove.
