The automotive rumormill is ablaze with talks of another British remake from a very German brand. BMW, who currently owns and operates the English marquee Mini, also holds the rights to Riley and Triumph. After the massive success that is the current Mini line-up, there had been a few gabs about another U.K. resurgence in the form of a new-age British sports car but nothing official really transpired. This isn’t to say that all is lost as a new rumor from England has BMW taking an order for a patent in the Triumph name.
According to Autoblog.com, a report from the UK indicates that BMW has filed for a patent to produce “products” with the Triumph name attached. This could just mean that the production of simple merchandise such as watches and or jewelry but it could also mean a rebadged Z4. In the past, there had been talks of a less expensive version of the BMW roadster with a Triumph name but nothing really came of it. Whether or not a remake is born, the patent means something new and British is about to hit the market.
