Reliant Robin

ER Classics Desktop 2022

The Reliant Robin was introduced 42 years ago! He grew in no time to be the best-selling product of the company based at the time in the British company Tamworth. The Reliant Robin, a design by the Ogle Design genius Tom Karen, was in October 1973 as a replacement for the Regal for the first sale. When it was introduced, the Robin was equipped with its 'own' 748 cm3 (full) aluminum motor that was soon explored into 848 cm3. An additional advantage was that, due to its low weight, the cart could also be driven with a motorcycle license and corresponding insurance and road tax. It will therefore not surprise you that the bodywork - also in this case - was made of polyester. The car was available as a passenger and station car, but also as a closed customer. In 1982 the curtain fell - after 66.000 copies - for the Robin. The cart is also built abroad under license. Among others in Israel.
