The Triumph TR7 was a popular two seat sports car with a distinctive wedge shaped profile.

The TR7 sold well in both the US and UK, in fact it initially sold so well in the US that sales in the UK were delayed because of high demand in America. Later the unreliable reputation of British cars took its toll on sales.

Powering the Triumph TR7 is a front-mounted, 2.0 litre, inline 4 cylinder which produces 105 horsepower. This was mated to a standard 4 speed manual transmission (an optional 5 speed manual and a 3 speed auto were available) which sent power to the rear wheels. If the 4 cylinder power isn't enough for you then then the TR7 is capable of accepting a variety of other, more powerful engines.

The front independent suspension of the Triumph TR7 used coil spring and damper struts and lower single link at the front. At the rear was a four link system again with coil springs. There were front and rear anti roll bars and disc brakes at the front and drums at the rear.

In total 112,368 Triumph TR7s were built.
