Head Gasket Failure Very Common But Excellent To Throw Into Corners — rover K series engine is very powerful for it's size but has a very nasty habit of blowing itself up. all round an absolutely excellent little car for driving like a hooligan or "driving like ya stole it"

Pros: good handling, very fast for their size and cheapness

Cons: head gasket failure
