Buyers Guide to the Triumph TR6
The last of the separate chassis TRs, being a TR5 with a re-styled body by Karmann of West Germany. North American types had twin Stromberg carburettors; the rest of the world got Lucas fuel injection. There were several updates. CP Commission Number cars had 150bhp with injection, measured to different standards, and not as big a de-tune as it looked. 91850 cars built 1968 to 1976.

Quote from Autocar, 17 April 1969:
" It is very much a masculine machine, calling for beefy muscles, bold decisions, and even ruthlessness on occasion. It could be dubbed the last real sports car..."
