Lightweight car and therefore performance is a good match for many more powerful cars. Without being offensively noisy, the TR5’s single exhaust pipe makes an impressive sound and a pleasingly smooth hum, rising to a full six-cylinder song when revved. Luggage accommodation is reasonable. Great for touring and qualifies for many UK and continental classic races & meets (50th birthday this year!). Compared with its predecessors, the TR5 is a complete transformation. The best TR looks and the best performance all in one package with great sports car response makes this the one to have.
