Affectionately referred to as a “British Corvette”, the Triumph TR8 was released with a sleek wedge shaped design courtesy of Harris Mann with some signature 1980's pop-up headlights to top things off. Finished in a distinctly British specification, this TR8 features a Poseidon Green exterior over a Tan interior with Tartan seat inlays. With a reputation for power and reliability, Triumph partnered with General Motors to source the aluminum 215 cu-in V8 that was chosen as a power plant. Featuring a more spacious interior, the TR8 offered a reasonable amount of comfort over its predecessor. More commonly found with an automatic, three-pedal enthusiasts will be pleased to hear this TR8 is equipped with a five-speed manual transmission. A remarkably original example, this especially British TR8 is ready to join the next collection.
