Triumph TR2501968 - 1969
The Triumph TR250, built during the same period for the North American market, was nearly identical to the TR5. But, because of price pressures and emission regulations the TR250 was fitted with twin Zenith-Stromberg carburettors rather than the Lucas fuel injection system. The reasons for this difference came down to price pressures of the American market, and tighter emissions regulations. The TR250's straight-six engine delivered 111 bhp (81 kW), 39 bhp less than the TR; 0–60 mph (0–97 km/h) acceleration took 10.6 seconds.
In 1968, the TR250 sold in North America for approximately $3,395, with wire wheels being another $118, overdrive $175 and air conditioning another $395.3
The TR250 was built in 8,480 units, all of which were for the American market. Approximately 600 remain worldwide today, and many can now be found outside the United States, primarily in Europe.
