1987 Rover 800 Review


European luxury car...




Rover Sterling Sli 825 — It was unique and ive never seen another one on the street. I miss the hell out of it. Performance: Good acceleration, okay braking, good handling... 175 hp Build quality: Very low maintenance. Semi-fragile transmission. Then again that is with any automatic. Costs: About 23 miles a gallon. Good for a V6. Very fun to drive!! Smooth as hell! I would definitely recommend it to a friend if anyone can find one..

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
