When it launched the TR2 in March 1953, Triumph was on to a winning formula despite involving a redesign of the stillborn TR1's chassis that was completed in just weeks. Simple and rugged yet with good and reliable performance at an affordable price, the TR2 was everyone's sports car. Producing 90bhp at 4300rpm, the 1991cc four cylinder could propel the TR2 to 60mph in 11.9 seconds and on to a top speed of 125 mph via the four speed gearbox. Triumph's hopes that the car would be successful in competition were soon realised, the first of many notable results being a win on the 1954 RAC Rally. A TR2 prototype, driven by Ken Richardson, and with special under tray and rear wheel spats, achieved an average 124.8mph during high speed runs at Jabekke in Belgium, with a standard engine.

In 1954 The Triumph Motor Company entered a team of 4 almost stock cars in the gruelling Mille Miglia. The following year they were entered in the 24 hours of Le Mans.

The car we are proud to offer has been comprehensively restored and forms part of a small collection of motorbikes and cars that are all maintained in very good running order by their engineer owner. The car is attractively finished in british racing green with a contrasting stone leather interior. A luggage rack has been fitted for continental jaunts and there is a tonneau cover for inclement weather. The wire wheels are of the chromed variety. An addictive, no frills British sports car that will liven the hearts of its next lucky owners.

We are informed that this car conforms in all respects to the new Mille Miglia regulations including the correct year of manufacture 1954.

L'auto che siamo orgoglioisi di offrire Ŕ stata complessivamente restaurata ed Ŕ parte di una piccola collezione di motociclette e vetture mantenute in buon ordine dal proprietario, un ingegnere. ╚ elegantemente rifinita in verde con interni in pelle grigi. ╚ stata dotata di portabagagli, ruote a raggi cromate e di copertura cassone per i casi di maltempo.
