:king: Good find - seems a below-the-radar special without a lot of known info. But as I understand it, the gist is that in 1980 Triumph churned out various batches of black TR7s for different markets. UK got a black coupe called Premium - 400 made. US got a black convertible called Black and/or Spider (also here - there's 2 pages but not sure if both links come up) - about 1900 made. But there was also a shadowy 1981 version of the Spider/Black in small numbers for Europe - http://tr7triumph.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=8487 and link above again:

"The 300 TR7 Limited Edition cars: the first cars in 1981 were Limited Edition cars for Europe, with identical build card specifications to the earlier U.S. market carburetted Spiders - 300 LHD DHC cars with Maraschino (black) paint, Grey Stripe interiors & Velour seat trims, plus cast alloy wheels, carbureted engines, 5 speed manual with 3.45:1 differential gearing.
VIN 402027 to 402328 (excepting VIN 402289 & 402290 which were Home market TR7 DHC’s in Pendelican White)
140 cars for France
95 cars for West Germany
39 cars for Italy
26 cars for Switzerland

Build cards were marked “L.EDITION”, as for the U.S. Spiders there was no specific call out of the trim customization or decal colour. So what were these cars? Communication between Jim TenCate and Andreas Dittiger suggests that these were called ‘Final Edition” cars (Letzte Edition auf Deutsch) and that the decals were silver in colour rather than the red reflective ones used on U.S. Spiders.
"

So you've found one of 140 sent to France.
