Coupe
One of two TR8s built to compete in the TRANS-AM and later IMSA race series. The car features the Rover-Buick-Oldsmobile-Pontiac aluminum V8 stroked to four-liters and producing just under 400 horsepower. These are the fastest Triumphs ever built and are capable of over 180 miles per hour.

This car won the GTO class at Daytona in 1980, and with its sister car, gave Group 44 2nd place in IMSA's GTO class having run only two-thirds of the races.
