The Triumph TR6 (1968-1976) is a sports car built by the British Triumph Motor Company between 1968 and 1976. It was the sales champion of the TR line when production ended, a record subsequently surpassed by the TR7. Of the 91,850 TR6 produced, 83,480 were exported; only 8,370 were sold in the UK.

The body was generally similar to the TR4 / TR5, but the front and rear ends were square, allegedly as a result of a consultancy contract involving Karmann.

Features

All TR6s were equipped with the Triumph 2.5-liter engine, with the same Lucas mechanical fuel injection as the TR5 for the UK and global markets, and carburetors for the United States, such as the USA's TR250. The TR6PI (gasoline injection) system helped the TR6 to produce 150 bhp (110 kW) (145 hp DIN) when the model was introduced.

O TR6 contou com uma transmissão manual de quatro velocidades. Um overdrive de comutação elétrica opcional operou na segunda, terceira e quarta marchas nos modelos iniciais e terceiro e quarto nos modelos anteriores. Construção foi o quadro tradicional. Outras características incluíam suspensão traseira independente semi-trailing braço, direção pinhão e cremalheira, rodas de 15 polegadas (380 mm) e pneus, tapete de pilha no chão e tronco / boot, assentos de balde e instrumentação completa. Freios eram discos na frente e tambores na parte traseira. Um hardtop de aço de fábrica era opcional, exigindo a instalação de duas pessoas. O painel de instrumentos era folheado a nogueira. Outras opções de fábrica incluíam uma barra estabilizadora traseira e um diferencial de deslizamento limitado.

The British version TR6PI can accelerate from zero to 60 mph (97 km / h) in 8.2 seconds and had a top speed of 120 mph (190 km / h) according to the magazine Autocar.
