10 December 2007

Fans of Britain’s last indigenous volume car-maker Rover will get the chance to buy what could turn out to be the last pristine example of its finest car on Friday 21 December, fully two-and-a-half years after MG Rover went to the wall.British Car Auctions at Blackbushe is selling three as-new Rover models next Friday, each built at the firm’s Longbridge factory shortly before it fell into administrator’s hands in April 2005. Among them is a delivery mileage Rover 75 V8 saloon, arguably its most distinguished car that, like the MG TF 160 and Rover 75 limousine going into the bidding ring alongside it, has been in storage since it rolled off the line.The Rover V8 is dark metallic blue with a leather interior, and was originally bought by the Inchcape dealer group but registered only very recently. Bidding on it is expected to be keen, with enthusiasts and collectors in attendance. Anyone interesting in bidding on it, or either of the cars it was locked-up with, should visit www.bca-group.com to find out more.
