1955 Triumph TR2

The Triumph TR2 was a very successful and popular sports car launched in 1953, especially on the American market. The goal was to make an affordable sports car that would enable its driver to win rallies on the weekends, which meant the top speed of the car had to reach 108 mph. The Triumph TR2 offered thrilling performance and driving experience thanks to its 90-hp tractor engine with double carburetors and 4 cylinders. The driver could feel the road and experience racing conditions, although some complaints were heard about the tightness of the cabin. Walter Belgrove was responsible for the design of the TR2, using the Jaguar XK120 model as an inspiration and keeping the shapes simple in order to limit expenses. The TR2 was the best quality to price ratio on the market and its replacement, the Triumph TR3, would also be very successful.
