Rover 825i — Was a great car, V6 2.5 Honda engine with a manual gearbox, it went like stink!! Just a shame it fell apart as quickly, too. Dont see many about now, such a shame. It had a beautiful interior, lots of wood and toys, very comfortable, big seats, even the rear ones reclined. When you gave it the beans, it sounded like a F1 racing car!!

My 3rd Car (not Actual Pic) — As I wanted to get rid of my Rover 214, I had no intention of buying another Rover, but sat on the forecourt of the garage where I bought the 214, I spotted this 800. I asked for a test drive, and I only managed a few yards and knew I had to have her. She was my first Auto, and I was sceptical about driving an old mans car, but the 800 was amazing. A huge car with a massive boot, a 2.0i engine, and even the standard sound system was quality. Apart from servicing I never laid out a penny on her, apart fom polish.

1998 Rover 820 Sterling By Chris

Known as the "luxo-barge", not the most exciting car in the world to drive. Not particularly quick but the torquey engine made for an easy if not very refined drive. Everything electric, leather inter... Read More

1998 Rover 800 Vitesse Coupe By Paul

One of the last true british Rovers to come out of Long Bridge. The 2 litre turbo engine kicks out around 200 bhp as standard. Lovely leather interior with wood effect trim. Down side is the poor buil... Read More

1996 Rover 820 Vitesse Sport - 200bhp 2.0 16v Turbo By Chris

A very quick 4 door saloon, won't keep up with sports cars or the likes of a BMW M5 but more than fast enough to be getting on with. Recaro half leather interior, most comfortable seats I have ever sa... Read More

Too Embarrassing To Mention By Nikki

Looked and drove like a bag of spanners. You needed a roll cage just to do a sharp lefty. Anything not welded on would fly off when you hit 50 mph. Car had an attitude problem and was glad to send i... Read More
