What's a 'Trident'?
A cursory web search reveals Trident has been “almost ready” to start selling cars since the early Noughties. Bought out in 2005, the last press release it issued touted the imminent availability of the Iceni, but that was almost three years ago, and we could find no evidence of any cars having been delivered to customers. So, fully expecting the company to have folded, we called the number on Trident’s website, which looks as though it hasn’t been updated since 2006. And to our surprise the phone was in fact answered. Two days later, an email from man-in-charge Phil Bevan lands in my inbox.
