The TR5 was launched in October 1967, with a 2498cc 6 cylinder fuel injected engine producing 150bhp. This model remained current for only 15 months and only about 2600 were sold. A rare item indeed. This model is not to be confused with the more numerous TR250, which was a US only market car, with twin carburettors, softer camshaft and lower compression head. A number of imported cars have been converted and occassionally get passed off as genuine TR5's
Some people say the TR6 was the end of the true TR sports car. It had the best of everything the TR range had to offer, Disk Brakes, IRS, Electric Overdrive and a soft top
The TR7 was a very controversial shape to say the least. None of the original TR heritage was carried over to this car, it was a completly new car from the ground up. Mechanically this car was much the same as most of the Japanese offerings of the time.
