I've had a bunch of Rovers of various types, with mixed results.  Well not that mixed really, the nearest thing to a happy ending is the ex-TaxiPaul 75 that I won, and couldn't use, which my mate Dave now has.  And loves.  So when I clicked the link on the ebay thread to a giffer-owned 820 auto there was only really ever going to be one result, wasn't there?

That's a good looking car Eddy, good luck on Sunday.

I used to do work on an early 827 fastback, it had the Honda V6 and was a lovely lovely car to waft around in.

Is that the one you linked to on my post Eddie? Do like I have always thought they were like the next era SD1's shame they never did a 3500.

I may have to give in and buy a flat cap for this one...

 

PO says it's ridiculously fast, he's enjoyed embarrassing "da kidz" at traffic lights.  That suits me!  On the ebay thread, someone said this engine makes 136bhp.  That's the same as Bodie's Capri 3.0.  Should be fun!

 

Jodie, yes, it's the same one.

I love 800s almost as much as I don't love 75s. A properly competitive car for the class it was aimed at , not some ill conceived , wrong sized retro throwback that has only gained any popularity because of the demise of the company and misty eyed nostalgia.
Although I do wonder if the National Trust grille and analogue clock on the Mk2 and its positive effect on sales of a by then slightly outdated car , could be said to be responsible for the whole Retro style thing , Rover 600, Nwe Beetle, S-Type, 75, Bini, Fiat 500- would any of these exist without the bit of chrome and plastic being met with such enthusiasm?

Yep this looks brilliant - not a popular colour either so certainly looks brilliant/different. 

 

Waiting for the collection thread with excitement.

 

These old Rovers are truly magnificent.

Aha, that might explain it.  There was no mention of a turbo in the listing, so it's probably safe to assume it doesn't have one.  Note, this logic doesn't necessarily apply to all circumstances.
