The Triumph "The Wedge" TR7, designed by Harris Mann, is the first model in the range to feature a self-supporting body. Fans of the Triumph range who appreciated the open models were not at all enthusiastic about this at the beginning, because due to the potentially pending convertible ban in the USA, the TR7 was initially offered exclusively as a coupé.
In addition, Triumph fans could not get over the fact that the TR7 simply had nothing in common with its predecessors: the rear independent suspension was dropped, the overdrive had to be dispensed with for the time being and the TR7's engine even had fewer cylinders than its predecessor, the TR6.
Nevertheless, the TR7 sold surprisingly well with over 112,000 units - even slightly better than its undisputed predecessor, the TR6. From 1979, the TR7 was also available for sale as a drophead coupé and the wedge shape of the TR7 slowly found a certain acceptance. And why not - the TR7 does everything right: it is relatively simple to operate, has a spacious cockpit, rear-wheel drive and is pleasant to drive.
The coupé variants of the TR7 are exclusively equipped with a 2-litre OHC inline four-cylinder and produce an output of 106 hp. With this, the TR7 reaches a top speed of 177 km/h. Earlier variants are equipped with a four-speed manual gearbox, later examples from 1977 onwards provide the relaxed, easy driving experience normally found in a "2-door saloon" via five gears.
A year later, the TR8 was added to the series, which made its appearance with the same body as the TR7, but hid a 3.5 litre eight-cylinder from Rover under the bonnet, which achieved a top speed of 217 km/h with 137 hp. The TR8 was intended for sale in the USA, but production was discontinued after less than 2 years due to declining sales (around 2750 produced).
The wedge asserted itself in the race
The TR was not only allowed to prove itself in road traffic, but also in rallies: From 1977, modified coupés could be seen on the race track with Tony Pond, Doug Sheperd and John Buffum at the wheel, among others. With the self-confident slogan "The shape of things that win", Triumph held its own against wedge shape critics and won four of the six Sports Car Club rallies, three of the seven North American Road Racing events and also took a victory in Canada.
The TR 8 was no less successful on the racetrack - even before it came onto the market as a road-going version: Under the leadership of Bob Tullius, Bill Adam and John McComb, the classic took numerous victories in the USA.
