A comprehensive pictorial overview of Rover cars has been released by Veloce publishing and James Taylor.
The author provides a detailed vision into Rover cars and car-derived vans covering a 60 year time-frame from 1945 to 2005.
An in depth look which describes and illustrates all of the great classic Rovers up to and including the SD1, and goes on to look at the models inherited from British Leyland that attracted Rover badges.
It finishes with the models designed in conjunction with Honda; the later British-designed cars – and even the final City Rover. There is also consideration of some Rover models that were designed but, for various reasons, did not enter production, and can now only be seen as prototypes in museums.
A title in Veloce’s popular Pictorial History series, this book describes all of the postwar models with illustrations and technical data for each.
