The SE6 series was aimed at the executive market. The cars were correspondingly longer and wider than their predecessors, and the extra length was used to improve the credentials as a 'genuine' four-seater.  A Laycock overdrive on 3rd and 4th gear was optional. The SE6 was replaced by the SE6A in late 1976. 543 SE6 models were produced.

One of the major differences with the SE6B was the engine. The German-built Cologne engine was used, and provided similar power but rather less torque. The final drive ratio was lowered to compensate, and some late versions, around 1983 on, came with the galvanised chassis. Only 437 SE6Bs were manufactured, and production ceased by 1986.

The vendor has owned this Scimitar GTC for 8 years, and has enjoyed many trips to Europe and around the UK in it with RSSOC. This car is one of the last batch with a galvanised chassis. The vendor states that the bodywork is sound, with the paintwork not immaculate but above average for a Scimitar. The hood is excellent with no rips or tears, and it comes with the optional hardtop. It is fitted with the 15 inch Middlebridge wheels with good tyres all round. The engine and gearbox are also said to be good. The car comes with an MoT until June 2020 with no advisories.
