The owner of a Triumph Italia website believes this car is still existing, but he hasn't got any clue where it could be... :cry:
I love that flat snout!

The TR3s in the first post are built by Vignale and are already listed in the Vignale section. Design is indeed by Michelotti.

Are the cars shown in the 3rd post one and the same car (but with a modified grill, head lights and C-pillar)?

Another picture has surfaced showing a non-identical twin of the well-known Michelotti TR3, as per below.

I've never seen this car before; does anyone know anything about it or have any more pictures?

Also below is another picture of the well-known version, registered and on the road in the UK.

The TR5 Ginevra was a prototype (chassis X760) built in 15 full days of work to introduce it to the 1968 Geneva motor show. Triumph decided to show the Stag in the stand, so Michelotti introduced this spyder in his stand. The car has a 2.0 liter and 6 cylinder engine with Lucas injection. Unfortunately Karmann had the commission to build the new TR6.

Another picture of a TR3 and a slightly larger version of one picture already posted here. I think it is fascinating car. I wonder what ever happened to it?

When in Modena. This must be after it was shown to Triumph given that the Mini behind it debuted in 1959. Perhaps the car is still be with us somewhere? At least it don't appears to have been scrapped by Triumph.

I believe Michelotti also designed this one as a prelude to the more known Fury concept car. You can clearly recognize many elements from his D-type based special. I'm not sure if it is just a mock-up or a real car though but I think it could be later.

Yes. Triumph delivered a car in Turin, see the license plate, and Michelotti made a new body. The background is a photo-set which was in a corner of the workshop.

Thanks. I wasn't sure if it was a real plate or not. Did the car have a name which can used to refer to it by? I really knows nothing about it.

Michelotti re-designed this car later the same year with a new front with concealed headlights. This is in this form it have survived to this day.

I think I would have restored it back to its original design if I owned it. :)
