Triumph 2000 and 2.5 PI #2# The Complete Story

by Graham Robson

The 2000 was one of Triumph's most elegant and popular cars, doing much to enhance standard-Triumph's reputation after the unadventurous Vanguard, and remaining in production for nearly fifteen years. The car was very versatile, with both saloons and estates, and the pioneering fuel injection models, all being designed round the same basic layout.

Graham Robson begins his intriguing story with the tortuous birth of the 2000, describing how the abandoned Zebu project evolved into the finished product. The success of this car and increasing competition from other manufacturers encouraged Triumph to produce a model with a more powerful engine, and tightening US exhaust emission regulations led them to experiment with the still new-fangled technology of fuel injection in the creation of the 2.5 PI. In the 1970s the range was further modified, with the introduction of the 2500 and the related Stag models, before production finally wound down in 1977.

Fully illustrated throughout with colour and black and white photographs, and with detailed chapters on the 2000's rallying and racing fortunes, full specifications for each model and panels detailing the personalities, places and events that shaped the evolution of the Triumph 2000 series, this comprehensive and readable book is a must for all Triumph fans.
