Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Triumph TR7 V8 Turbo 1981 Restored Hand built available RPM1502BM This brutal twin-turbo V8 TR7 was originally built by Janspeed and ADA in the late 1970s and attempted to qualify for Le Mans in 1980 but didn’t make the grid. Over the following couple of years, it was entered in a handful of other endurance events but failed to finish each time and subsequently retired. The car has since been resurrected and restored by a Belgian Triumph specialist and it is in restored form that we see it here. The kit parts are cleanly cast with crisp panel engraving and the small vent and bulge details are correct for the restored car. The packaging suggests the car is modelled as it appeared at Goodwood in 2016 but there are a few decals such as the current owner’s name omitted. The hand built shows that all the kit parts go together well and the paint finish is good with the decals conforming nicely to the complex shapes. A bit of an ugly duckling, but great fun.
Very well made resin & metal kits and smartly finished hand built models, Made in England.
