Makkina Triumph TR25 on Display at the British Motor Museum
July 18 @ 10:00 am - September 10 @ 5:00 pm
Following last week’s unveiling in London, the British Motor Museum is delighted to announce that the Triumph TR25 created by Makkina is now on display at the Museum, sitting alongside its original inspiration – the record-breaking ‘Jabbeke’ Triumph TR2, MVC575. The TR25 will be on display from Tuesday 18 July for a minimum of 8 weeks.
Paying tribute to automotive heritage while embracing modern-day technology, the design of the Triumph TR25 is a bold, ultra-contemporary interpretation of the ‘Jabbeke’ which broke the land speed record for production cars under two litres in May 1953, 70 years ago. With a deep-rooted commitment to craftsmanship and innovation, UK-based design house Makkina, with the blessing of BMW Group who own the rights to the Triumph name, has created the TR25 to embody the Jabbeke’s attributes in a contemporary way with realistic proportions that remain true to the Triumph brand.
Stephen Laing, Head of Collections at the British Motor Museum said “We were absolutely delighted to be approached by Makkina with the idea of putting this fabulous concept car on display alongside the vehicle that inspired it! This year marks 70 years since Triumph set the record and the TR25 seems a very fitting homage to the Jabekke car and also to Triumph, an iconic British marque – in its centenary year. 2023 is the 25th birthday of the Makkina design house and the 30th anniversary of the British Motor Museum – so it seems we all have important milestones to celebrate!”
Director at Makkina, Michael Ani, said: “The British Motor Museum is the ideal place for the Triumph TR25 by Makkina to reside. It gives visitors the chance to see the interpretation of a contemporary Triumph design alongside its historic inspiration.”
