Sellers original description:

Simply Stunning Rover 825i Sterling Auto (honda Engine)

This is a real timewarp car having covered just 33,000 miles (believed genuine HPI check to back this up).

The car features Claret Red bodywork with the single tone paint option available on the Sterlings at the time. The bodywork can only be described as great for the age of the car. There is no rust! As you will see from the photos the arches, inside door trims bottom of doors and all the usual 800 rust spots simply havent effected this car.

Inside the car has luxury oatmeal interior and wood trim. Its very well equiped with electric heated front seats, electric adjustable back seats, power windows, aircon etc etc.

The cars sunroof all works again with no usual Rover Rusty tracks etc.

The engine is the very smooth 2.5 V6 Honda unit which was only in the 800 for about two years. I have owned a lot of 800's and in my opinion the 2.5 Honda unit is a lot quieter and smoother than the 2.7 or later Rover KV6.

The auto box works as it should and is very smooth between gears.

According to how many left there are only around 20 of the 2.5 Honda Powered Rovers left making this a very very rare car which can only go up in value from here on in.

With the 80's becoming more popular this car has earning potential and has been already been in a small Scottish production Movie this summer. 

Due to the age of the car you can also insure it on a classic Policy (cost me £120 for a year). Making this cheap big luxury motoring..what other car could you buy with this specification and low miles for the money?
