Can be picked up in: France - with French registration - In good condition

Reliant Scimitar GTE (Grand Touring Estate) SE6A from 1979, produced at 3887 copies with only 177 being LHD, therefore very rare on the market.

This body combines the advantages of the coupé (performance, sportiness) and the estate car (4 real seats, large boot). The tailgate opens upward and the seats fold down to free up space for larger loads.

At the time, no other British vehicle could combine a high cruise speed and room for 4 adults and their luggage.
Princess Anne received a Scimitar GTE for her 20th birthday and subsequently owned 8!

The model proposed here is an SE 6A of the last production.

It is equipped with a V6 3000 cc Ford Essex engine and a Borg Warner automatic transmission.

It is in very good condition, cared for, drives regularly.
Recent engine, gearbox and bridge drain.
Numerous new parts:
- Petrol pump.
- Weber carburettor + air filter
- 6 spark plugs
- Battery
- 4 adjustable gas shock absorbers.

The mechanics work perfectly (the engine starts immediately, the gears change really well). The V6 Ford is powerful and reliable. It does not overheat, not even in traffic jams.

The interior is in perfect condition. The outer paint (British green metallic) deserves to be redone in order for the vehicle to be perfect.

The papers are French and in my own name.

In order to avoid disappointment, after arranging an appointment through Catawiki, you can come see the vehicle, take it on the road for a test drive and view it on an elevated lift at your convenience.

It can be retrieved near Tours or delivery within the whole of Europe is possible (against additional cost) upon agreement with the seller.
