Triumph Dolomite, Dolomite Sprint
Triumph's little FWD Triumph 1300 range is re-engineered with RWD and a sporting twin cam version. The Triumph 1300 had already been re-engineered into both the rear drive Toledo and the longer front drive 1500 in 1970, but management decided to go for even more performance and better equipment. Triumph had already designed and built a slant-four ohc engine on contract for Saab and it was decided to use a version of this engine for a new version of the 1300/1500 models. Launched in 1971 as the Triumph Dolomite, the rear wheel drive saloon used the longer 1500 body and an 1854cc engine with stiffer suspension. In autumn 1973 a new Sprint version of the Dolomite was launched with a new 16-valve head, alloy wheels. Unfortunately there were problems with both the engineering of the Dolomites and poor quality control due to frequent factory strikes. In 1975 all the remaining 1300, 1500 and 1850 Triumphs were consolidated into a 'Dolomite' brand using the long-boot body and rear wheel drive. In 1975 the Dolomite 1850 engine was given to the new Triumph TR7 sports car. Production of the Dolomite continued until 1980 and then the Triumph name all but died, only continuing on a re-badged Honda car before it breathed its last.
