Little-known manufacturer of sports cars, based in Suffolk, England. Formed by William J. ‘Bill’ Last, a TVR dealer, who bought the rights to a TVR design by Trevor Fiore ( Frost) after that company went bankrupt. The Trident Clipper was mated to an Austin–Healey 3000 chassis; later models used Triumph TR6 chassis. The company went under with the fuel crisis, though there was a brief attempt to revive the models in 1976. There was an attempt to revive the brand under Lola’s Eric Broadley in 1999, with 11 prototypes built around then. An additional diesel prototype was shown in 2007, but series production is yet to commence.
