An interesting watch - but £55,000?

Some of you may have seen this before, but a clip from BBC's Tomorrows World in 1971 makes interesting watching....

Yes, very interesting to watch and it's all come true as well for the modern car. For the motor industry to choose the Triumph as its test bed shows I think that the cars were held in high regard when new. Many aspects of Triumph's cars were ahead of their time and not fully appreciated at the time, but became common place in later years.
