Reliant - Reliant Scimitar GTC SE8

Half way through the production years of the Scimitar SE6, Reliant unveiled the Scimitar GTC SE8 in 1980, which Ogle Design had been working on. The C in GTC stood for convertible. The Ogle companies Tom Karen used his existing SE5 design and strengthened the chassis sufficiently with triangulation to the scuttle to make a rigid enough structure to allow for an open top, yet suprisingly the car was still lighter than its predecessor. The car was well received and was later offered with a hardtop, but the car was expensive and didn't sell in big numbers during its listed production to 1988.

Scimitar GTC SE8 tyre size was originally 185R14, and Blockley produces an excellent quality high speed rated 185HR14 tyre size - see full details of this 185HR14 tyre below:
