Triumph Stag. Defeat snatched from the jaws of victory

The Triumph Stag development story is a tragic missed opportunity – it had everything: looks, power, a soundtrack to die for and a market niche all to itself. Yet it died after a short production run, and drove many of its first owners to distraction.

A sad end for a car with such obvious potential.
