Sorry If It's A Bit To Modern And Not A Triumph

Recommended Posts

Great bit of kit, and the P1 is definitely a safe investment. I had a boggo WRX a few years ago as a winter hack and loved it.

 

Enjoy!

Hooligan machine......  I once sat in the passenger seat of one of something very similar while it was being piloted by around the local lanes by a complete nutter.  That experience remains in my top 3 adrenaline rushes, close behind our lap of the 'ring in the Vitesse.......

 

Last weekend a very bad man was trying to tempt me with a Legacy 3.0 estate.  I was tempted - but they have a fairly severe drink problem and I was able to resist.

Blimey — I bet that's quick — must be close to my car considering power and weight.

 

4wd and turbo torque I bet it's quicker off the line too.

 

I most certainly know what you're going through right now :)

Yep it's a bit on the nippy side .......................

 

various road tests put it's 0-60 times between 4.6 and 4.8 seconds in standard trim circa 270 bhp.

 

I used to ride an R1 Yamaha a few years back and acceleration wise its the closest I've been to that since.

 

Now it just needs some decent tyres fitting as it has 2 snow tyres on the front and 2 normal tyres on the rear, makes it interesting in the snow :whistling:
