He also comes with updated 15" MGF alloy wheels with good tyres all round. "££££'s SPENT IN THE LAST 2 YEARS BY THE PREVIOUS OWNER ENSURING MECHANICALLY A1".

The TR7, characterised by its "wedge" shape and by a swage line sweeping down from the rear wing to just behind the front wheel, was commonly advertised as: "the shape of things to come". The prototype for the convertible version of the original Harris Mann design came from Michelotti and the engineering to make it work was done by Triumph.
*A variant of the TR7 powered by the Dolomite Sprint engine (dubbed the TR7 Sprint) was developed, but never put into full production; though British Leyland had the 16-valve engined TR7 homologated for use in competition.
