76TS001 Triumph Stag Saffron
The Triumph Stag sports tourer was a British car made by the Triumph Motor Company between 1970 and 1977. Classed as a four seater convertible coupé, it had been designed by Italian designer Giovanni Michelotti. Fitted with a 3.0L V8 engine, it was highly desirable and proved to be one of the IT cars of the era! An option for purchasers was a removable canvas top which later became standard.
To launch our newly tooled 1:76 scale model, we have chosen an authentic Stag colour scheme of saffron yellow with black interior. The characteristic Triumph radiator features the silver leaping stag in the centre of the chrome and black grille. The stag badge is also embedded into the rear bumper. Our car is registered RVC 435H from 1970, the first year of production.
The Triumph Stag has been the ‘star’ of several TV programmes and films. James Bond fans may recall in Diamonds are Forever, Sean Connery commandeering a Stag from a diamond smuggler!
