1978 Reliant Scimitar SE6a 3.0 Litre V6 petrol
An affordable bespoke hand-built understated British sports car
Got the car used from my Dad (thanks Dad) had been laid up for 4 years so a few things were bound to be wrong...
Gearbox and rear axle leak.
Dashboard lights didn't work.
Clutch slave cylinder fell off one day.
Rear axle is very noisy.
A rot free classic that will only appreciate.
Be prepared to spend lots of time maintaining one.
Take a toolkit wherever you go.
Will outrun and out handle many modern cars.
You will either love it or hate it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
