This model is the Dinky 111-G-2 Triumph TR2 Sports in Turquoise with red interior and hubs. The blue driver is not original to the model.

There are no opening parts on this model, all detail such as the bonnet, boot, grille and lights being cast into the body casting. The vehicle is adorned with silver painted grille, bumper, and headlight lenses to the front, and silver over-riders to the rear. The bonnet and side doors carry the racing number "25".

The interior is part of the body casting with the seats, rear parcel shelf, and dashboard all painted red. There is a cream steering wheel set into the red "dashboard". The front windshield glazing is clear.

All wheels are one piece, red painted, metal hubs with separate black rubber tyres on domed steel axles which pass through the base plate.

The base plate is black painted tinplate metal that carries the legend "Dinky Toys" to the centre top, "Triumph TR2" in the centre middle, and " Made in England, Meccano Ltd" on two lines at the centre bottom. The model reference number "111" appears just forward of the front rivet. The base is held in place by two machined rivets.

This model was issued between 1956 and 1959.
