Boating Reliant-Style

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

We love the Reliant Robin the way we love a three-legged kitten. You consistently feel sorry for it, but it's impossible not to feel affection for the damned thing. Top Gear, of course, tried to turn one into a Space Shuttle, and the season before that they'd turned a Toyota Hilux, a Vanagon and Triumph Herald into amphibious vehicle. We have no idea whether this particular aquatic Robin still works as a car, but it seems to be doing a damn sight better as a boat than the ones fielded by Clarkson, Hammond and May. It doesn't explode, either, but we still kind of have a crush on it.
