Triumph – Italia 2000

.

Vehicle Overview

The Triumph Italia 2000 Coupé was built between 1959 and 1962, during which time 330 cars were produced. Designed by Giovanni Michelotti, the TR3 chassis and mechanical components were supplied by the Triumph Motor Company in the United Kingdom, and built by Alfredo Vignale in Turin, Italy.

By most accounts, only 330 (2 prototypes and 328 numbered production cars) of these hand-crafted bodies on TR3 chassis were ever built – known as the Triumph “Italia 2000 Coupé”. Designed by Giovanni Michelotti and built by Alfredo Vignale in Turin, under contract to Ruffino S.p.A. Industria Construzione Automobile of Naples – it was thought that these cars would appeal to people willing to spend more for the dependability and ease of obtaining stock mechanical parts of a Triumph, but who wanted a better looking car than the standard Triumph – “Italian bodywork at its best, British tradition in sports car engineering at its finest.”
