Lot '57: Triumph Stag

Classic & Vintage Cars & Motorcycles, Brightwells Auctioneers and Valuers (23 June 2010)

Sold between 1970 and 1978, the Michelotti-styled Triumph Stag was designed to be a gentleman's sports tourer to compete head-on with rivals like the Mercedes SL. A full four-seater, it was powered by an all-new Triumph-designed 2,997cc V8 engine that produced 145bhp, sufficient to propel the car to a heady 115mph with a wonderfully woofly exhaust note. Most cars were fitted with a three-speed automatic gearbox.

Dating from April 1976, this particular Stag has had just four owners from new and has been in the current registered keeper's hands since 1986. Looking truly stunning in Topaz Orange, it has covered only 60,000 miles from new and was treated to an �11,000 refurbishment at Alan Carrington Classic Cars in 2008. This included a high quality respray and rechrome, refurbished alloy wheels and the fitment of electronic ignition.

Other features include: automatic transmission and power steering; dark walnut dash; Pioneer CD system; wind deflector; hard top stand and cover. Said to drive beautifully with a notably sweet engine, it comes with a large history file and is due to have a fresh MOT before the sale.
