    • I think Top Gear gave it more attention than it deserved. They are horrible cars, especially in the later years when Reliant began putting overpowered engines in them...

    • I mean that with a smile in my face.

      It gets way more attention than it should. It gets it all because it’s got 3 wheels, it flips easy and it was used in some Brit TV show.

      It’s pretty cheap and unimpressive I’m almost every way.

    • It’s cool, but in all seriousness, it’s a terrible car - is that what you’re trying to say? If so, the Countach was the same.

  • I think it was pretty funny when one would show up in Mr Bean, other than that it would be seriously uncool, I would go lower than that but there isn't a "so uncool it would be only useful as a garbage can." section of the cool wall

  • I was once over taken by Reliant Robin. I was driving in the rain down a hill with a slight off camber bend. Traffic was slowing. I braked. I heard a bang behind me and a terrible scraping noise as a Reliant Robin on its roof slid past me. I caught the eye of the upside down driver as he went past. He managed to look embarrassed and scared all at the same time.

    I also worked with someone who drove a Reliant Robin. He took his car in for a maintenance service and drove it straight into an inspection pit. The front of the car fell into the pit ripping the body off! He forgot he only had one wheel at the front!

    Final Robin Reliant story. Two friends on a motorcycle riding through a set of traffic lights hit the side of a Reliant Robin which had failed to stop at a red traffic light. The force of the impact tore the side completely off the Reliant Robin exposing the driver. The motorbike had a damaged front fork and a few scratches. My friends had a few bruises and scratches.

    Two lessons from this;

    1) Never ever drive one on the road.

    2) Encourage others to drive them. They are comically dangerous🤣
