Scimitar ?I may be wrong but I thought the Sabre used the straight 6 ( Zodiac ) engine ? I never thought I'd say this but a Sabre is actually worth saving:oops::shock:

You learn something new every day...
I didn't know that they had a six for the first couple of years.
Predates the GTE which we all think of when you say Scimitar.

back in about '79 I saw the Ogle design car which was the protoype for the GTE sitting outside The Clarendon Hotel in Hammersmith.

Looks like it's gone :sniff:

My mate was after the triples and head for his Mk3 Zephyr. I think Raymond Mays did the tuning for these? Anyone else who might have a set hanging around could they give me a PM? :tup:
