Triumph - TR4 - Lights of Art
The story commences with the pre-war sporting cars created by the original Triumph factory before the takeover by the Standard Motor Company and the proceedings that led to the prototype 20TS which was developed into the ground breaking TR2. Every model in the TR range is covered up to the last of the line TR6 which was finally replaced by the all new 'Bullet' project we more commonly know as the TR7.
Featuring interviews with the engineers who developed the cars, Triumph historians and TR specialists this DVD is sure to appeal to classic car enthusiasts and particularly fans and owners of cars bearing the Triumph badge. Archive material is included throughout along with extensive new footage which includes the works race and rally cars as they appear today.
An extra featurette on disc 1 is an extended interview with Standard Triumph Body Engineering Executive, Norman Rose.
