The second in our fleet of classic British roadsters is our 1972 TR6. Each of the TR range is unique in their own way but their DNA evolved through to the TR6. During its production life just over 91,000 were made of which most went to the USA; just over 8,300 were sold in the UK. Whilst the Karmann designed exterior looked years ahead of its TR predecessors, it could be argued it was a case of the emperor’s new clothes as the engines, windscreen, chassis and running gear were all from the previous model. But different and more modern they certainly looked and were popular.
Powered by a 2.5 straight 6 coupled to a 4 speed manual gearbox (ours has factory optional overdrive) performance was spritely; 0-60 in just over 8 seconds and top speed of around 120mph.
