Its sports cars having relied exclusively on four-cylinder engines for the preceding decade-and-a-half, Triumph turned to six cylinders to extend the life and improve the performance of the much loved 'TR' series. Similar to the preceding four-cylinder TR4A - the first TR with independent rear suspension - but with Triumph's 2.5-liter, six-cylinder engine installed in place of the old 2.1-liter four, the TR5 was produced during the 1968 model year only pending the arrival of the TR6. Restyled for 1969 by Karmann of Osnabruck, the TR6 sported a full-width nose and squared-off tail. Under the skin the chassis remained basically the same as its independently-rear-suspended TR4A ancestor's while the 2.5-liter Lucas fuel-injected power unit was unchanged, producing 150bhp initially and a more civilized 125bhp by the end of production.
