Insurance Group 35, 2 Previous Owners, Rover announced the new 75 V8 model at the Geneva Motor Show also in 2002. This was the second iteration of the modified rear-wheel-drive platform developed by MG Rover and already receiving plaudits from the media. The car also boasted a new grille stretching down from the bonnet shut-line to the bottom lip of the bumper. It was also the first V8 engine Rover since the demise of the Rover SD1 in 1986. The Rover 75 V8 was created as a means of proving MG Rover`s engineering expertise and to attract a development partner to the company. The car was extensively reengineered to accommodate Ford`s Modular V8 in 4.6 litre capacity, driving the rear wheels to give a car with much higher performance, taking advantage of the stiffening tunnel in the body structure. These cars were built on the standard production line, and then removed to allow the necessary structural modifications to be carried out. The cars were then returned to the trimming lines for completion.Just under 900 were produced in both saloon and Tourer body styles, carrying either Rover 75 or MG ZT trim. The cars had numerous differences to the standard versions, drivetrain notwithstanding, with non standard heating and ventilation, plus brakes and suspension capable of dealing with the extra power. The Rover version only came with the automatic transmission option. The example offered here is a 3 owner car, which has covered just 46, 500 miles from new and has, within the last 1000 miles, been equipped with new discs and pads all round, 4 new Avon tyres, new front coil springs and newly refurbished and laser cut alloy road wheels, which are unique to the 75 V8. Offered complete with original owners manual/service book, with service stamps and a nice history file. Finished in Starlight Silver with grey leather, piped white, the car has the full Connoisseur SE options pack, including Sat Nav, TV, heated seats, electric seats, stacking CD player etc. According to "How many left" there are only41 of these cars registered as being "In Use" on UK roads in 2019.
