Description: Reliant was known for its three-wheelers when the Israeli company Autocars chose it to build a range of fibreglass bodied cars including a sports car, the Sabra. From the Sabra came the Reliant Sabre then the Scimitar, the GTE version of which has attained cult status among enthusiasts. This book tells the whole story, including the later SS1 and SST two-seaters and a number of Reliant-based specials. A good read and a fascinating story.
