TRIUMPH DOLOMITE SPRINT

4-door 4-seater saloon.

Praiseworthy effort to convert the half-way-there Dolomite 1850 into a real sports saloon. Without the ageing style, would have been a real 'silk purse' too. Like 1850 but with enlarged and clever 16-valve engine of 127bhp, backed by rugged TR6-style gearbox (once again, some overdrive and some automatic), with bigger brakes and alloy wheels. 115mph top speed, flashing acceleration - a race-winning Group 1 saloon. Sadly, a great, though costly, engine looking for a chassis.
