Launched in 1953, the Triumph TR2 was a very successful and popular sports car, especially on the American market. The idea was to offer a cheap sports car that would enable its driver to win rallies on the weekends, which meant the car had to reach a top speed over 108 mph. With its 90-hp tractor engine with double carburetors and 4 cylinders, the Triumph TR2 offered thrilling performance and driving experience. Although complaints have been heard about the comfort due to the tight cabin, the driver could feel the road and experience racing conditions. The body was designed by Walter Belgrove who was asked to keep the shapes simple in order to limit expenses and find inspiration in the Jaguar XK120 model. Best quality to price ratio on the market, the TR2 was a hit and its evolution, the Triumph TR3 would continue the line successfully.
