Triumph TR5

The Triumph TR5 was built for a 13-month period between August 1967 and September 1968 by the Triumph Motor Company in Coventry, England. Visually identical to the Michelotti styled TR4, the TR5 hid the main differences under the body. The most significant change from the TR4 was the 2.5-litre straight-6 fuel-injected engine, developing around 150 bhp (112 kW)(145 hp DIN), and which was carried forward to the TR6. At the time, fuel injection (or PI petrol injection, as it was sometimes then called) was uncommon in road cars. Triumph claimed in their sales brochure that it was the "First British production sports car with petrol injection". This engine could propel the TR5 from 0–50 mph (80 km/h) in just 6.5 seconds, and on to a top speed of 125 mph (201 km/h). Standard equipment included front disc brakesindependent rear suspensionrack and pinion steering and a four speed gearbox. The available optional extras included overdrivewire wheels and a hard top with detachable roof panel – known as the Surrey Top. The TR5 was produced in small numbers when compared with the later TR6, with just 2,947 units produced; the first car was assembled on 29 August 1967 and the last on 19 September 1968. Of these, 1,161 were destined for the UK market, the remainder being LHD TR5s and going to France, Belgium and Germany amongst others. In a similar period 8,484 TR250s were built for the U.S market.
