Prototype 3000 V8 Estate

XXC 200K Built by Triumph Experimental Between August and October 1971 Using Stag V8 Running Gear (Engine No LE 902 EBW)

Predating the Del Lines V8 Estates by some years he has never the less stated in a recent telephone conversation that on one of his many visits to Triumph at the time he remembers seeing this car in its original colour (white).

It is believed that this is the only genuine Triumph built V8 Estate although Heritage understand that 2 saloons (since revised to lots, thanks to Pete Clarke, see below) were also built one of which they have in their reserve collection.
