Front-wheel-drive V8. Essentially, it was an 1800 Mk2 body reworked to accommodate a Rover V8 engine and a bespoke transmission unit. The only exterior differences between the V8 and the normal car was a 117mm extension of the front wings and bonnet (above), and it was virtually indistinguishable from the standard car unless they were side by side

BMC Australia and its Leyland successor produced some interesting prototypes along the way. This front-wheel-drive, V8-powered Austin 1800 was seriously investigated in 1968.
