Lat week, for reasons that escape me, I was watching a You Tube clip of Ridley Scott’s 1990 Rover Metro advert. It was spectacular sci-fi spoof designed to show just how much the Rover Metro differed from the Austin Metro.

(I particularly like the bit at 45sec where the engine is put upside down into the Metro…)

What caught my eye was the closing still which said that the ‘New Metro – with Rover engineering’ cost between £5985 and £9735.
