Triumph was a British automaker that was active from 1885 to 1984. During its time in operation, the company produced a variety of vehicles, including sports cars, sedans, and convertibles. Some of its most famous models include the TR series of sports cars, the Spitfire and GT6 roadsters, and the Herald and Vitesse saloons. Triumph was known for its focus on driver engagement and handling, and many of its cars are still highly regarded by enthusiasts today. The company also had a strong racing heritage, with its cars competing in events such as the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Despite its popularity, Triumph struggled with financial difficulties in the 1970s and 1980s, eventually leading to its acquisition by British Leyland. After a period of turmoil, the Triumph brand was eventually retired in 1984.
