To many, the TR6's sharp styling - Karmann's reinterpretation of the Michelotti-penned TR4/TR5 - looks ever better with age, and this notably smart red example certainly strikes the right pose. Trimmed in Black and riding on Minilite-style wheels, it benefits from a restoration in 2012 and a range of mechanical upgrades. These include: competition clutch; oil cooler; EBC Green Stuff brake pads operating on drilled/grooved discs; and a roll cage. Further additions to the specification include a factory hardtop, superior four-speaker stereo and USB connectivity. The vendor informs us that the Triumph 'drives and handles beautifully' and regards the bodywork, paintwork, original Black vinyl interior, straight-six engine and manual gearbox as all being in 'excellent' order. He says the car has travelled just 5,000 miles in the last 11 years and believes the indicated total of 79,396 to be genuine. He is now offering 'SVR 43H' complete with an MOT valid until July 20 next year.
