The Triumph Motor Company was a British motor manufacturer that produced cars from the 1920s though to the early 1980s.
The company had its origins in a bicycle company, founded in England by German partners in the mid-1880s. The company began by selling imported bicycles. By 1889, it was manufacturing its own.
The bicycles were followed by motorcycles, which were mass produced for the British Army during World War I.
By the 1920s, the company had produced its first car – a 1.4-litre economy model called the Triumph.
After World War II, the company was bought by the Standard Motor Company – and in 1960, Standard-Triumph was bought by Leyland Motors, later to become the British Leyland Motor Corporation.
In 1981, the last Triumph car model – a Honda Ballade rebadged as the Triumph Acclaim – was produced.
Today, the Triumph Motor Company trademark is owned by BMW. In addition, the name is used by the US-based company Triumph Motorcycles, which is one of the world’s largest motorbike manufacturers.
