Rover 75 V8 rivals

Written by Parkers on

The stately alternative to the MG ZT V8, the Rover V8 Saloon and Tourer was considerably re-engineered to accommodate a longitudinally-mounted V8 engine and drive to the rear wheels only where other 75 models are exclusively front wheel driven. In addition to the mechanical changes, it also features a new grill, which Rover says was designed to emulate the grill featured on big Rover saloons of old but also looks a lot like the new Audi design.

All the same it helps to distinguish the V8 from lesser models and contributes to an air of cut price Bentley.
