Just A Fantastic Car To Drive. — The best care that i have in my fleet it has a 4.6L V8 powering it and eats up Km's like no tomorrow it is a car that you can just cruise around in all day and you don't never get tired of driving it or through it a round corrners and it will just love them a good all round fun car to drive.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: the comfort when driving is exceptional.

Cons: fuel costs can be a little concerning witht the 4.6L v8

Big Beast That Went Like Stink — drank fuel like it was going out of fashion, breaking down a lot, but at least it was nice ti sit in at the side of the ride.

Pros: great inside ver pos for its time. and it got up and went.

The Rover Sd1 Vitesse — Epic Perfomance with good brakes and suspension, The build quality wasnt bad but some of the materials used in the interior dont stand the test of time well. Engine would go on and on if it wasnt for the iffy EFI system, bin this and fit a Weber 500 Carb if you want bulletproof reliability. After that your only problem will be rust, and there will be plenty of it :(

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The power, sound, looks and above all its a Rover.

Cons: Rust!!!!
