Encompassing the full development of the Triumph 2000, from the early Vanguard model to the Mark 2 models, this book covers the revolutionary aspects of Triumph engineering, including the small-capacity six-cylinder engine and independent suspension, as well as the iconic Michelotti design and quality cabin.
Packed with detail, the full evolution of the Mark 1 model is described, along with the introduction of the Mark 2 version, which was to have considerable success as a rally car. The Triumph 2000 is also compared to its main British competitor, the Rover P6. The journey finishes with the takeover by British Leyland, and all the subsequent implications for Triumph.
Kevin Warrington offers an essential guide to the Triumph 2000, with a wide range of photographs and features.
