Corgi has released the first CAD design drawing of its new Vanguards Triumph TR6
Corgi has released the first CAD design drawing of its new Vanguards Triumph TR6 (No VA14700), due next winter, and claim that “it's going to be triumphant!”.
Triumph realised the Michelotti-styled 1961 TR4 body was looking dated by 1967, but that it just needed restyling to remain competitive. It had received a new chassis in 1965 to become the TR4A, and in 1967 Triumph had slotted in its smooth 2.5-litre 6-cylinder engine to create the TR5. With Michelotti too busy, West German coachbuilders Karmann were tasked with modernising it and the resulting 1969 TR6, which featured new panels front and rear on the TR5 base, was immediately successful. The TR6 remained in production until July 1976.
