RELIANT SCIMITAR GTE
The celebrated 'sports/estate' undergoes a significant change for 1976 with the lengthening and widening of the glass-fibre body. Using the same V6 Ford engine, the three-door 120 mph GTE is 10 cm longer overall, and 2.5 cm wider. The modifications make for greater legroom for rear seat passengers, and vastly-increased load space when the back seat is folded. The latest GTE has a rust-proof exterior, and bumpers are of rubber. There is optional power steering, and dual-circuit brakes are standard. The side doors are wider and fuel tank capacity has been increased to 20 gallons.
