[DVD] Story of the Triumph Stag - Code Name Stag


Triumph Stag: The Legendary 2+2 Sporting Grand Tourer

The Stag was a new concept for a mass produced British car; this was a grand tourer to compete with brands such as Alfa Romeo and Mercedes boasting an all new V8 engine, styling by Giovanni Michelotti and a marketing campaign aimed squarely at the young executive. Yet despite all this, the car was a financial failure for British Leyland with less than 26,000 cars built during its seven year production run.

However, soon after the cessation of production in 1977 and despite all the problems, the Stag quickly attained classic status. As a result a high percentage of these cars have survived and are still providing enjoyment to thousands of Triumph enthusiasts all over the world.

This film charts the history of the car from its origins right up to the present day featuring archive footage and images, input from former Triumph engineers, Triumph historians and Stag enthusiasts along with new footage of the surviving prototypes, press cars and other imprtant Stags shot exclusively for this release. Purchase Code Name: Stag, Michelotti's Masterpiece from TDC Automotive today.

Extras are 'The Tickford Stag' and 'The Men Behind The Motors' featuring extended interviews with Tony Lee (Triumph Chief Development Engineer) and Gordon Birtwistle (Triumph High Speed Test Engineer).
