History of the Triumph TR2

183491-1000-0

The TR2 was introduced in 1953 as Triumph’s bid to capture some of the budding sports car market in the USA.  A total of 8,636 TR2s were built between August 1953 and September 1955, a large fraction of which were exported to the United States. The TR2 is widely recognized as the car that “started it all” for Triumph in the USA. The TR2’s combination of lively performance, good looks, and reasonable price made it a strong seller and led to the very successful TR line that we all know and love.
