Sub zero for me. Should have shown a picture of the interior as well - lovely.

Yes, the interior is exquisite. Gorgeous and very cool indeed. Super rare in the UK, especially the Spider versions.

Sign of a chronic restorer - I looked at that and my first thought was "where would I find a set of NOS taillight lenses?"...

Nice car; it could leave its hubcaps under my workbench anytime. Mind you, a Mistral floats my boat too.

Could we add a Reliant Scimitar to the wall, please?

Is it a poor person's Jensen Interceptor or a cool budget cruiser?

Cheers, EP or whoever.

I think the Scimi popped up on here (or some similar post) a while ago; from what I remember nobody was very keen on Mr Ogle's finest, even in Triplex form

I wouldn't mind a decent SE5a with overdrive, even though they are basically an ugly V6 Capri with slightly better handling / rust resistance but worse reliability.

OTOH I'd give up a fleet of 100 Scimitars to get hold of a Dino coupe

The more showy, in my opinion, Spider can set you back almost a quarter of a mil....

Interesting connection but not IMHO.

It's subtly more beautiful. Sub zero.

Did Opel do a Dino Coupe when they did that Manta?
