Before choosing the name, you have to know if it is a boy or a girl :D

Yes, 1959 Scimitar Retractable Hardtop, designed by Brooks Stevens. It was built on a Chrysler chassis.

Any link with the Reliant of the same model name? Or just a coincidence?

I don’t know of any link that would connect them together.

'Scimitar' is a curved, Oriental sword. This one looks as sharp as a sword, maybe the Reliant can be driven that sharp?

I think Reliant had a fit of naming cars after types of sword. Their first excursion into proper cars, as opposed to motorised roller skates, was called Sabre; they had developed the Sabra sports car for Israel and simply anglicised the name for the home market.

Built in Germany for the 1959 Geneva Auto Show. Stevens also designed a wagon (Scimitar All-Purpose Sedan) and a four-door convertible (Scimitar Town Car Phaeton) for the event.
