Factory V8 prototype saloon using TR8 running gear.
This is one of four cars that we own that was originally built as a PE166 engine (later became the SD1 2,600cc straight six) or 2000 MkIII development shells, only this one is fitted with TR8 engine and 5 speed gearbox.
Built by Triumph Experimental as a painted and trimmed shell ready to go into the MkIII development program along with at least 20 other special 'off tools' shells this one got sidelined and ended up in TR8 development work.
Life On Mars
Our car also appeared (very briefly) in an episode of Life On Mars.
