1970-1974 BOND Bug 700E specifications

1970-1974 BOND Bug 700E specifications Classic and Performance Car

This funky and fun three-wheeler was built for pure entertainment purposes by Reliant, Bond’s owner from 1969. A cheesy car for a cheesy decade, Ogle Design came up with the wedge shape where the two passengers gained access via the pull-forward canopy. The only official colour available was a very vibrant tangerine. The engines were Reliant: a 700cc unit offering 29bhp, and 31bhp on the ES model, followed by a 748cc offering 32bhp in 1973. Utterly mad but the classic car world is all the richer for bizarre cars such as these.
