Sabra (Israeli) out of Reliant (British)
Reliant made some sensational cars but this weren't one of 'em.
I don't think there's been any successful Israeli Cars.
I mustn't go too far on this subject otherwise I'll find myself in a cell with Jeremy Corbyn.

Probably would be cool to fix up and drive today!

Its a DB (Deutsch-Bonnet)

Charles Deutsch left the partnership, René Bonnet went on to produce the Jet, the fibreglass of which was produced by Matra, Matra then took over the company keeping the mid engined ethos through the 530, Bagheera and Murena until they decided there was more money in people carriers (they designed and built the first few series of Renault Espace). Renault took the Espace in house, Matra had the Avantime but Renault put more effort into selling the Vel Satis which some saw as a competitor. Matra stopped producing cars in 2003.

Having been at Matra events around the launch of the Avantime I am now feeling old....

An unusual car I saw today, amazing quality and looked even better in the flesh.

I have never seen one of these before. Interesting to read about it, apparently the only one in the UK

Yes spot on, a 5.4 corvette event engine, close up it had the finish of a kit car.

The Bentley is a replica but quality was incredible. Built on the correct chassis. It was up for sale but no hint for how much.
