Traditional Triumph TR
The seperate chassis TR was to run from 1953 until 1976 - a period which
saw turmoil within the British motor industry. But through it all the
TR survived and brought the Triumph name acclaim and recognition
throughout the world. From the moment the TR2 was unvieled the company
would forever be associated with sports cars; a reputation that
continues to the present day.
Triumph Stag: The Legendary 2+2 Sporting Grand TourerThe Stag was a new concept for a mass produced British car; this was a grand tourer to compete with brands such as Alfa Romeo and Mercedes boasting an all new V8 engine, styling by Giovanni Michelotti and a marketing campaign aimed squarely at the young executive. Yet despite all this, the car was a financial failure for British Leyland with less than 26,000 cars built during its seven year production run.
However, soon after the cessation of production in 1977 and despite all the problems, the Stag quickly attained classic status. As a result a high percentage of these cars have survived and are still providing enjoyment to thousands of Triumph enthusiasts all over the world.
This film charts the history of the car from its origins right up to the present day featuring archive footage and images, input from former Triumph engineers, Triumph historians and Stag enthusiasts along with new footage of the surviving prototypes, press cars and other imprtant Stags shot exclusively for this release.

TR7: The Iconic Retro Wedge of the 70's
The biggest selling of all the Triumph TR sports cars and the last of the line
The car did not have an easy life. It was conceived and engineered at a time when the British motor industry was in turmoil; build quality was poor; it didn't have the performance to match its looks and many commentators could not understand its futuristic styling. Ultimately the surviving cars have proved the critics wrong and become sought after, eye catching, classic sports cars. Buy this DVD Now from Revington TR

The nature of the event, for those not familiar, is of a road regularity rally. Some regularity rally’s can be a little tedious, with long stretches of straight roads having to be run at 50kph. This is not the case with the French Revolution, which is by comparison, fast and furious.
