    GUY HOLMES’ ROVER SD1 ‘TWIN PLENUM’ VITESSE

    / #Rover-SD1 / #Rover / #Rover-Vitesse / #Rover-V8

    Just check out Guy’s beautiful Rover-SD1 luxobarge here, a car that’s clearly been kept in tip-top condition by one discerning owner. This awesome old skool British icon may look pretty stock on the outside, but that's the whole point. In reality it's sporting plenty of tucked-away modifications, enough to make it quite the sleeper on the streets.
    With a comprehensively re-worked version of Rover’s 3.9-litre V8 now sitting pretty under the long bonnet, there’s also plenty of breathing mods, as well as far beefier braking and suspension systems. In short, it's a real hairy-chested driving machine.

    “I’ve owned and loved it since 2001. Not many can resist the sound of a Rover V8 rumbling down the street!” He's not wrong, eh?

    TOP MODS: 3.9-litre V8 engine (with flowed heads, Crane 216 cams and #Rimmer-Bros stainless-steel exhaust system), Jaguar XJS front brakes, Goodridge brake hoses, high-capacity radiator with Revotech electric fan, Spax adjustable suspension, polybushed, #MOMO steering wheel

    Put it all down to our new #V8 engine.

    It gives more power of course, but power which flows out with astonishing smoothness. And yet this engine is 200 lb. lighter than our previous unit: the unrivalled benefit of all-aluminium construction.

    Because it is lighter we were able to improve the weight distribution. This gives you even better, safer road-holding and cornering power.

    We’ve improved the lighting with built-in fog lamps. And we’ve redesigned the interior to give you even more comfort and convenience.

    The rest of the luxury is well-known.

    From the very first we’ve believed in the benefits of hand craftsmanship. The new Rover 3.5 litre is no exception.

    For more information why not see one of our dealers? They have to be good to match the car.

    Or write to us: Sales Division, The Rover Company Limited, Solihull, Warwickshire.

    Prices (inc. purchase tax UK 1967): Automatic Saloon £1,999.3.4; Automatic Coupe £2,097.10.0.
