This is the fastest, loudest, most sporting evolution of the TR breed. The use of a six-cylinder engine was not a new idea at all. Ever since the late-1950s there had been experimental TRs running around with six-cylinder engines, but for many years the sales organisation had shied away from the very idea; somehow they could not see a TR as a smooth and refined car. It was only the urgent need for more TR performance in the mid-1960s which caused their change of heart.' – Graham Robson, 'The Triumph TRs'.
Its sports cars having relied exclusively on four-cylinder engines for the preceding decade-and-a-half, Triumph turned to six cylinders to extend the life and improve the performance of the much loved 'TR' series. Similar to the preceding four-cylinder TR4A - the first TR with independent rear suspension - but with Triumph's 2.5-litre, six-cylinder engine installed in place of the old 2.1-litre four, the TR5 was produced during the 1968 model year only, pending the arrival of the TR6. Restyled for 1969 by Karmann of Osnabruck, the TR6 sported a full-width nose and squared-off tail. Under the skin the chassis remained basically the same as its independently-rear-suspended TR4A ancestor's while the 2.5-litre Lucas fuel-injected power unit was unchanged, producing 150bhp initially then 124bhp from 1973 onwards. Handling was improved over that of the TR5 courtesy of wider wheels and a front anti-roll bar. Good for 120mph with acceleration to match, the six-cylinder TRs are arguably the most exciting Triumphs ever made, continuing to enjoy an enthusiastic following world-wide and an excellent network of spare parts and service providers.
