Triumph TR5


Triumph TR5

Much like the TR3 was almost a facsimile of the TR2, the TR5 looked pretty much identical to the TR4A that preceded it. But the TR5's biggest difference was hidden under the long bonnet, with a new 2.5-liter (152ci) six-cylinder fuel injected engine installed. The result was a car that delivered blistering performance and a fantastic exhaust note, while other changes included more powerful brakes, stiffer rear suspension and a more comfortable and safely conscious cabin. The TR4A's bonnet bulge was retained, although it wasn't needed) for effect. Unfortunately for Triumph, the Lucas fuel-injection system filled to home market cars failed to meet stringent emissions legislation in the USA, so cars destined for the States came with Zentih carburettors instead. These less powerful machines were rebadged as TR250s.
