An important motoring landmark
that could easily slip under the radar was the launch 50 years ago of the Reliant Scimitar GTE at the 1968 Earls Court Motor Show. To mark the event, this issue includes a fastidiously restored example as a Reader’s Restoration, while an informative historical feature traces the development of this very underestimated two-plus-two coupè.
The Scimitar Drivers’ Club will no doubt be marking the GTE’s half century at this year’s Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show with Discovery by putting on a very special display reflecting the event’s ‘Built to Last’ theme. Billed as ‘the biggest and best indoor car show in the UK’, the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show starts on Friday, November 9 and runs through to Sunday, November 11.
