Reliant Tempest 850 two seater sports car ,design by Ian Foster(Teal Buggati) and John Box as a performance and handling commission from Reliant , 40 or so of these MGTD looking type cars have been assembled so far, some as new turnkey cars and later in kit form. Using standard Reliant parts from the Fox and Kitten ,with perfect weight distribution and under 500kg they make for little flyers.
Successful in trails ,very practical and extremely economical .
classic British sports car.
Very rarely become available as most owners keep them for ever.
Complete cars,projects,kits,spares,modifications even a very smart van version (Vantique)all in stock .
Cars ready to go tend to be £8000 to £10,000 (you get a lot of car for £10,000 , discs , ball joints , four branch, all the modifications)
They have been going up in value last few years (in line with JZR , Liege, Pembelton) and have improved in quality and performance .
Unfinished cars/part built projects go for £3000 to £4000 depending on quality and spec , can work out better than buying a kit as saves finding a donor car.
