General Detail:

This vehicle being a 1997 is fitted with the later Rover 216 engine.

The earlier model engines were also fine provided you regularly changed the coolant and serviced the vehicle... no different requirements than to any other car.

The vehicle drives as you would expect it to drive... smoothly and effortlessly through the open countryside and on urban roads. Being the 216 it is also very responsive.

This is most certainly one for a collector or for someone who appreciates such a car.

These cars are now becoming a very rare sight on our roads today. More so one in this colour and specification.

The car also benefits from qualifying for “Classic Car” Insurance.
