This makes the TR5 a fairly rare vehicle.
The export version of the TR5 was called the 'TR250'. This had carburettors instead of fuel injection thus reducing the bhp to 100. This was not accepted too well in America!

In 1967, Triumph put a fuel-injected six cylinder engine into the then current model, the TR4A. This engine replaced the four cylinder 2.2ltr unit. Thus the TR5 was born. This new engine gave the TR5 150bhp thus enabling the little Triumph to reach a 125mph - which was very good for its day.
Triumph made less than 3000 TR5's before they brought out the TR6 with it's redesigned bodywork by Karmann.
