Rover V8 SD1 story in ETCC Part 1
Rover SD1`s in the 84/85 ETCC season.. filmed from the Rover perspective.





The new Rover V8 in my MGB - Starting for the first time
So, after a year or so I have finaly inserted a new V8 in my MGB. This video show the very first (and successful) attempt at starting the new engine. After 7 years on the road, the original engine's block cracked 1 month before I retired and moved to Lyme Regis in July 2007. I've never performed anything major like this before, so this was a big and anxious moment.





Design with Style -- The Rover SD1
Rover and British Leyland were beset by problems in the mid 1970s. Out of this cauldron of mismanagement came the Rover SD1 in 1976. It was called SD for the Specialist Division and 1 for the first car to come from the in-house styling department. Despite a dramatic, innovative design both inside and out, the option of classic V8 grunt, and more or less universally praised dynamics, the SD1's reputation -and its longevity suffered at the hands of a company in meltdown. And it could all have been so different. The car, which was styled by Rover's design genius David Bache, had some grand ambitions. It had been designed to look like a family version of contemporary Italian supercars (they even got a load of Italian supercars in for comparison purposes early in the design process), while the attractive interior was intelligently designed from both a user's and an engineering perspective. Such was BL's confidence in it that they ploughed £31 million into a new factory (which in the end would be mothballed after just five years it even received rave reviews from the motoring press. "It is hard to be over-enthusiastic about the new 3500" said Autocar. "On every score, its qualities justify any kind of enthusiasm. It would have been hard to predict, especially looking at the bald paper specification, just how well the car would perform, handle and ride. "Add to that the spaciousness and aerodynamic efficiency of the body, and the attention paid to ensuring that the car will last, and it is easy to see why all competitors are casting worried glances, not only at the car but also at its price. If the 3500 will be built in sufficient numbers, if the quality can be maintained along with the price, and if the ground is not cut from under its wheels by ill-advised legislation, the new 3500 should be one of the successes of the decade." But production numbers, of course, could not be maintained and nor could the quality. And all we are left with in the 21st century is a whole bag of 'what ifs' and a dwindling handful of what was once one of the most promising cars ever to be created in Britain.

Tony Pond IOM TT Challenge Rover Vitesse 100mph lap record
In 1990 Tony Pond one of the greatest British drivers laps the Isle of Man TT course in a Rover 827 Vitesse averaging 102 mph. For me this is an incredible lap in a car that is far better than it was given credit for. Can you imagine someone trying that in a Ford Granada or BMW 520 or Citroen, Renault, Vauxhall or any other similar priced cars in the Rover price range. As said below by liverush24 this was to show how good the Rover is and at the same time Tony Pond showed how brilliant a driver he is. He did that lap with an average of over 100mph through those narrow lanes and country roads, find other 100mph average laps and get a true perspective of the achievement. Higgins lap to is impressive and a great achievement but done in a modern lightweight state of the art, turbo charged rally car with computer controlled 4 wheel drive to save you in big moments, ABS etc etc, Ponds lap is in an 80's front wheel drive production car with a about 180hp, that is truly brilliant.





Rover The Long Goodbye
Rover: The Long Goodbye 20 March 2007 BBC Four Documentary which traces the rise and fall of a great British brand. In the days when Britain's car industry was the envy of the world, Rover epitomised everything to which the driver of taste aspired, but in 2005 it reached the end of the road. The film explores how Rover cars went from defining their eras to becoming victims of their times, telling the story behind the key models to the controversial joint ventures with Japanese and Indian manufacturers in later years.
