For many enthusiasts the 1969 TR6 was the last Triumph TR. It might have been crude and old fashioned, but it rewarded drivers who knew its limits. The styling was by Karmann of Germany, and now enthusiasts regard this as a classic look thanks to wraparound rear lights and the bold, aggressive front. Underneath it had a separate chassis with double wishbones at the front and a trailing arm independent rear which, though better than previous live axles TRs, still wasn't that great so Triumph gave the TR6 wide tyres to help. The straight-six engine was a development of the former four-cylinder cast-iron unit from the early 1960s and hence was no technical revelation in design; however, it did use Lucas mechanical fuel injection which improved power, but at the cost of reliability at low speeds. The TR6 lasted until 1976, and remained on the market when the TR7 was launched.
