• ~ the sabra cactus is reported to be found only in Israel, however this particular Sabra began as the Ashley Sport Barchetta 1172 built by Ashley Laminates in merry old England. another little known car (in US) is Reliant, and one aspect of Reliant’s work was helping develop other countries’ motor industries. one such project was with Autocars of Israel and was the development of a sports car known as the Sabra. Reliant acquired the rights to and adapted that of the Ashley 1172 as Sabra for Autocars, then eventually produced it themselves in England as Reliant’s first four-wheeled car, the Reliant Sabre. one car, three makers and three names.
