1996 (June) Rover Vitesse Sport Saloon Starter Classic. Finished in the red, the Rover is complemented with a Recarro sports interior, in black with red coloured stitching. This is a very rare opportunity to acquire one of these cars in original, unrestored condition. The car comes with 12 months MOT with no advisories. The car has just completed a thorough check and mini overhaul after a lay-up in a heated garage: The braking system has been overhauled including new flexibles. The Timing belt and tensioner replaced complete with an Oil and Filter Change. ECU refurbished. Injector replaced. Interior cables for the bonnet release replaced. Additionally the infamous leaky petrol fill pipe has been replaced with a refurbished item in the recent past. This car was previously a Rover Management car prior to being purchased by the present elderly owner in 1998. The car has been stored in a heated garage when not in use. The Rover is very clean in its present state. Equipment-wise, the car boasts four electric windows, central locking and the factory fitted stereo. All of the equipment fitted to the car works as would be expected. Being the Vitesse model, it features the Multi Point Fuel Injection system aligned with the factory fitted Turbocharger, this car produced some 200 BHP! The car drives beautifully, with barely a note in the background. It is as smooth and taut as you'd expect. Condition-wise, the car is very clean. The bodywork has a lovely shine, and the interior is bright and fresh. The headlining is in excellent order, a small amount of lifting is noted on the dashboard. The car has had the Alloy Wheels refurbished in the past together with a small amount of tidy up work around the arches. The car would benefit from the paintwork being refreshed however it is very smart as is. This car represents excellent value as a starter classic, rarely seen on the roads of today. There are currently only 8 Vitesse Sports Licensed today this is a golden opportunity.
