1995 Rover 800 Review
It Was Good For Its Time — My mum used to drive this car.It was very comfortable and has good mpg.At first it had great acceleration and a good turbo,handling wasnt super but it was the first car I've been behind the wheel of and it had good handling considering it was a beach.
Cons: Doesn't age well.
