18 Triumph TR4/5/6
PRICE RANGE £2000-25,000+
To many British sports car enthusiasts, the 4, 5 and 6 are the best exponents of the type, being rapid and engaging. Anyone who doesn’t want a car that demands driver involvement should look elsewhere, because these cars aren’t really for the soft-hearted. Yet the big-hearted TR4/5/6 is rewarding – it can be used regularly and does pretty well in competition. Stock examples are great for hillclimbs and sprints, and they’re good for long-distance touring events, too. There are plenty of clubs and specialists to encourage your enthusiasm and help keep these bruisers on the road, and they still represent great value for money as classics.
