Scimitar 4x4 Prototype to be Auctioned

Mark H. My choice would be that Citroen Visa, it looks superb. Love the interior!

Hope the GTE FF goes to a good home and we all get to appreciate it some more in the future. Definitely an important vehicle and of significance.

Plenty of pedal cars there, perhaps I should pop along and pick up a project for R-R junior, wonder what she would fancy.

Looks like a load more items have been added today, plus a general item ("article") on the Brightwells site describing the auction generally and featuring the Scim as the accompanying illustration. How on earth did the collector assemble so many kids' cars in one place ?

I think the Chevette HS is worth the most out of the collection

It was an internet bidder, rather than someone at the sale

£13K plus 10% buyers fee plus VAT on that.
I registered to bid LIVE on line but it has been a total farce, no sound from the Live feed and I couldn`t get any sense from trying to get on line.

To be fair the guys at Brightwells did call me back a few times when I expressed an interest.


See the Beast on youtube under" RELIANT SCIMITAR CONVERSION LOL.,Se5,Se5a, Se6a, Two Se6b`s, GTC, SST 1800Ti & not a lot of sense

Previous: 1968(x2), 1969, 1970, 1971 SE5(s), a brace of Rebels… and a 1970 Trident Clipper. Does a 2004 MG-ZTT count too?

A pessimist is never disappointed...

The way they explained the charges to me was.
Hammer price = £13000
10% buyers fee =£1300
20% vat on buyers fee =£260
Total should be £ 14560

Interestingly, while I was doing my parade laps of Goodwood I was listening to the commentary on the radio (who do you think you are, Stirling Moss? :lol: ) and so far as I could tell they seemed to avoid the usual Scimitar clichés, but they did give a mention to the fact that the 4x4 prototype was coming up for sale shortly, and implied it was something they'd like to own :D
