The inaccuracies in the review make me cringe though!

Never try and argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you based on experience.

Yes even I spotted a few. I didn’t know a certain princess owned one :roll: :roll: . In fairness I think this is Dave Poole’s car (bet he didn’t write the article) and he’s done great work in promoting the brand especially his recent Petrolicious video.

No such thing as bad publicity!

This paragraph is spot on IMHO:

'For today’s buyer, the GTE offers exclusivity, durability, practicality and a great sporting feel. Costly insurance disappeared when classic policies were born. ‘Catching fire’ was always unfair, resulting from a long-cured Ford V6 carburettor failing. And unreliability results from neglect rather than any inherent weakness, and can be avoided with some intensive tender loving care.'

A Scimitar GTE remains a bargain too.

I’ll agree with that part, Nigel - some of the other bits are a bit inaccurate sadly.

As a brief review though it’s enough to hopefully guide a prospective owner to dig a bit deeper?
