Reliant Kitten Pro-Street

Les Reliant sont très connu en Angleterre où elles sont très populaires surtout leur version à 3 roues qui pullulent encore de nos jours. Oui les anglais sont bizarres!!! Certains de ces anglais sont encore plus bizarre que la moyenne et décident de s’acharner sur une pauvre Reliant Kitten 4 roues en faisant d’elle une version Pro-Street!!! Bah oui encore une caisse pas chère avec un V8 Rover 3.5 litres qui arrache tout!!! Là y a quand même du bout de fait. La carrosserie est refaite en fibre, le châssis tubulaire complet et donc un V8. Rien a faire de plus pour bien délirer dans la rue et ne pas être ridicule sur les pistes de drags. Car avec son poids plume la petite Reliant abat le 400DA en 12.81 sec et a une top speed de 130 mph (environ 209km/h). Pas mal pour un pot de yaourt!!! Alors qui pour nous faire une R5, une Fiesta MK1 ou même une Panda aussi brutale que cette Reliant???

En prime je vous met des photos (petites désolé) de la fabrication, les specs et une vidéo pour vous prouver que ça marche fort!!!
