If you have a thing for classic rides by a defunct marque, well, then I pretty sure you will dig this rebuilt 1976 Supercharged Triumph Stag. Apparently, build by West London-based Triumph specialist, Enginuity, this beautiful 76’ example features modified suspension, all-round disc brakes, and BMW limited slip differential supplied by Monarch and Chris Witor. The car was driven up Prescott Hill Climb and signed British Formula One legend Sir Stirling Moss in 2011.
Beyond that, not much is known about this sweet classic from the 70s, but one thing we do know is, it is up for grab now. And the price? An equally sweet £37,000 (about US$52,100). Whether or not it is worth the dough, it is hard to pass a judgement as little is known about this British racing green beauty. If you are keen, you can find contact details HERE. For the uninitiated, the Triumph Stag was produced between 1971-1977 and it came with a 2,997cc V8 motor. The car was a product of the non-defunct Triumph Motor Company which had a history dating back to 1885. Yep. It is that old.
While the automaker’s cars were well-received, it was plagued by a tremulous history 50 years into its existence that ultimately saw it changed hands several times before the marque was retired in 1984. Interestingly, BMW owns the trademark now when it acquired Rover Group in 1994. The German automaker managed to retain the rights to the marque after off-loading Rover to the Phoenix Consortium. Even so, at this point, the possibility of a revival is still rather faint. However, if there’s one thing BMW Group knows, it would be reviving marques and I am sure if it eventually do, fans will be elated. God, how have I wish the Triumph TR3 has a modern take!
