The TR8 appears to have a cam installed. The acceleration is much better than a stock TR8. There is a bog when u step on it. and then all heck breaks loose. Performance feels like it would rival a healthy 5. 0 Mustang. Shifting takes practice as the transmission is notchy to shift. as most TR7 and 8's Search words: MG MGA MGB MGC Jaguar. Austin Healey. British Corvette. TVR. Fiat. Alfa Romero. Rover. Aston Martin. WIKI: In 1979. a long awaited Michelotti re-designed TR7 Drophead (convertible) was introduced. and all subsequent production TR8s were convertibles. [10] Total worldwide production. as best as can be determined throughout all the labour turmoil at the time. is only around 2750. give or take a "handful". (Enthusiast Richard Connew went through the records at British Motor Heritage Industry Trust and counted 2746. ) Other estimates exist. The German version of this page claims 2722 and cites the TR Register-Austria as source; 2815 is the number quoted in an article from Classic & Sports Car. March 1986 and in William Kimberley's 1981 book[11] as well. Both the TR7 and TR8 were made until October 1981 when production ceased. Very few genuine TR8s exist outside of the United States and Canada. In other countries the TR7 is often converted to a "TR7V8" with the same ubiquitous Buick/Rover 3. 5 litre V8 powerplant used in original factory TR8s. In Australia a popular TR7V8 conversion is to use the 4416 cc version of this engine that had been developed for the Leyland P76. In North America. the TR8 originally sold for around $11. 00. A current rough estimate of the number of these cars remaining taken from the Triumph Wedge Owners Association registry of unique VINs). current Triumph Wedge Owners Association membership records. the World Wide TR7 TR8 Owners Club. and the TR Drivers Club UK is around 1000 convertibles and 200 coupes.
