Advertised as “the shape of things to come”, the Triumph TR7 was perhaps the boldest addition to the Triumph TR line. Produced between 1974 to 1981, the model was a consistent success throughout its seven year run. The TR7 was launched in the United States in 1975, where it was such a big hit that the subsequent British launch was delayed more than once due to the high demand across the sea. This was only the beginning.
Over 115,000 TR7 models were built, making it the best-selling model in the Triumph TR lineup, despite sports cars declining in popularity during the late eighties. The car still enjoyed success within the developing sports car niche audience, with new cars still being sold late into 1982.
The TR7 model stood out from its lineup with its characteristic wedge shape, and the stylish swage line that ran through its sides. The car’s look was so attractive, it made several appearances in television shows at the time, including Dallas and The New Avengers. Throughout several revisions and variants, the TR7 kept its undeniable style.
A bit of a swan song for mainstream sports cars culture, the Triumph TR7 remains a classic in its own right, crowing a lineup of beautiful, accordingly vintage vehicles.
