The first models were the Triumph 1800 and 2000 Roadster, followed by the more popular Triumph TR2 in 1953, which performed 100 mph at a very affordable price. In the 1950s and 1960s, Triumph developed the four-cylinder engines with the TR3 and TR5 models. The peak of performance and aesthetic was the Triumph TR6, introduced in 1969. Some models, including the Triumph Spitfire and the snug fastback coupe Triumph GT6 series, are very desirable classics nowadays. Other Triumphs such as the 1975 four-cylinder TR7 and the 1980 V8 Triumph TR8 were more controversial with their wedge shapes.
