Maybe the “other” one? Either that, or someone has made a replica. Please enlighten us, rebel alliance!

I believe so - that doesn’t mean they were the same though! The one Dave photographed certainly looks nothing like a Coupe engine bay yet the yellow one does. Is the other one still in Denmark?

What a superb picture. Is this your car or a photo taken at an event. Daimler V8 looks very much at home there.

The two Ogle coupes were on SP250 chassis but the Scimitar coupe was a (very) modified Sabre chassis.

My understanding is that the original Ogle (i.e. Rubenstein) Coupe was based on the Dart (SP250) chassis. When Reliant saw it at the 1962 London Motor Show they were surprised how close in dimensions the SP250 chassis was to that of the Sabre 6 so they bought the body design and engineered the Sabre chassis to fit.

Yep - that was my understanding as well - the Ogles are SP250's underneath.
