Rover 820 Coupe

I thought this was one of the prettiest Rovers made. It also had a lovely interior. When first made they were asking in the high twenties of thousands of pounds for this car, which is possibly why not so many sold.

Although it had a two litre turbo like the Vitesse Sport is was noticeably slower. I think the ecu kept it at 180hp or so.

It suffered from the same sort of niggly faults as the Vitesse Sport and eventually I had to let it go. Looking at these pictures now, I wish I still had it but I say that about all my cars!

17” alloys

2 litre turbo

Great leather interior

The coupe got to take a holiday in France
