The TR2 was designed to compete with sports cars and to replace the underpowered Triumph Roadster that had become obsolete. For these reasons, John Black, president of the Triumph owner group, decided to start the design of a new prototype with a 2.0-liter engine that was presented in 1952 at the London auto show.
Only a year later the evolution of the prototype was ready, developed by the pilot Richardson, called TR2. The new car had larger dimensions, and was equipped with renewed mechanics. Richardson's long refinement work and the successful line meant that at its debut (1953) the new roadster was received with enthusiasm, especially in America. The first TR2s were characterized by the so-called narrow mouth and long door (small mouth, long door), that is, by the small recessed mask and by the doors that extended to the lower part of the sill. Subsequently, after the first 1000 units produced, the so-called small mouth, short door model was introduced, that is, always with the same small recessed grille, but with shorter doors. In 1955 the TR2 was replaced by the later TR3.
