Bond Reviews

Lawrence Bond set up his self-named car company in 1948. The first products three-wheeled Minicars, which provided basic and inexpensive transport. They also proved to be the cornerstone of the business, remaining in production (with updates) until 1966. Bond expanded the range along the way to include the 875 – three wheels and glassfibre bodywork – and the GT, which was a four-wheeled sports coupé based on the Triumph Herald.

When Triumph moved on to the more powerful Vitesse, so did Bond, with the Equipe 2-Litre. The takeover by Reliant in 1970 killed off all these models, but the Bond name continued on the Bug, a wedge-shaped three-wheeler designed purely for fun.

Good: Interesting styling, nice to drive, excellent parts availability
Bad: Is it any real improvement over the car it's based on?
Good: Amazing looks, turns on a sixpence, cheap to run (and less so to buy), guaranteed to get you noticed.
Bad: Suspect handling, inherited from the Reliant it was based upon
