The cars : Triumph TR7/TR8

The Times writes

The TR7 represents an investment of £11m and is being built at the Triumph factory at Speke, near Liverpool. The eventual production target is between 60,000 and 70,000 cars a year.


Lord Stokes in London: “We want to see the TR7 earn a lot of money in America. It has an excellent pedigree and comes from a line of TR sports cars which have won a lot of friends in the U S. and all over the world”

Stylist Harris Mann: “There was this tremendous amount of paperwork flowing across from the States giving notice of new regulations which meant changes and styling detours.”
