The Plus


Triumph gave the name Spitfire to another car, but there's good reason to think the TR6 deserved it more. Rugged, brutally fast and aimed at enthusiastic drivers, it shared many qualities with the British plane.

This elegant TR6 is firmly in that spirit with its striking colour scheme, which incorporates a matte English green and Spitfire roundel, which complement the distinctive yellow paintwork well, a theme that continues inside with the suppressed black leather seats and door panels, accented in yellow.

The car spent its life in the USA - it's a twin carburettor car with the prefix 'CC' - before arriving in France. It has been well maintained and the vendor has taken care to improve it. He has recently added a new steering rack, overhauled the brakes, fitted an electric fan to improve cooling in hot weather and added a new roof.

The condition has been checked by a long term MOT, valid until December 2027. The car has recently been checked by the Club's local mechanic, including fluids, filters and levels. This car is perfect for summer touring and is sure to be the talk of the town.
