The Rover 75 was manufactured by Rover Group and later by MG Rover. The Rover 75 was available with front-wheel drive in either a saloon or estate body style and latterly, in long wheelbase form and a rear-wheel drive, V8 engined specification. Rover 75’s were built at Cowley, Oxfordshire, for just a year when the owners at the time, BMW, divested its interests in Rover and the 75 was built by the new MG Rover Group at their Longbridge site in Birmingham. Production of the Rover and later MG badged models ceased on 8th April 2005 when manufacturer MG Rover Group entered administration.
Originally registered on 31st October 2002, the current registered keeper purchased this Rover on 14th December of the same year. The car covered 18,000 miles in the first eight years on the road and has covered 4,000 miles in the last nine years. Presenting in excellent condition throughout, this Rover drives exceedingly well with no rattles or squeaks. Powered by a 1.8 litre diesel engine which is mated to a five speed automatic gearbox, this 75 Connoisseur is a well equipped vehicle with electric seats, park distance control, heated seats, air conditioning and cruise control. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate; Rover 75’s are an underrated vehicle and could have investment potential.
