1986 Vitesse Twin Plenium - Barons Tuesday 17th July 2018 For Sale by Auction

The flagship EFi model was created when Rover introduced a 190 bhp fuel-injected version of its V8. Borrowing from technologies pioneered in the US and Australian markets, the new derivative was originally only available in the Vitesse model, but from 1984 onwards it was also offered in the luxury Vanden Plas range, badged as the Vanden Plas EFi. To meet the demands of the luxury executive car market, where automatic transmission tended to be preferred, Rover first offered an auto as an option in the Vitesse, but later withdrew the option and lured the customers to the plush Vanden Plas EFi instead which had all the standard comforts of the Vitesse, such as electric mirrors, windows and locks, a trip computer, headlight washers, an adjustable steering column and a four-speaker stereo (something special at that time). Additionally, it added as standard leather seats, an electrically operated sunroof, and cruise control, the only option being air-conditioning. Very rare are the "Twin Plenum" Vitesses; these had two throttle bodies mounted on the plenum chamber instead of one and were produced in very small numbers as homologation for the twin plenum racers. Registered on 01/05/1986 C799MEV is a nice example of a very rare limited production Rover Vitesse Twin Plenum. Finished in Silver Leaf the paintwork and bodywork is in very good condition, most of the paintwork is believed to be original factory and presents very well. The interior is in very nice order, there is no seat wear or damage and it benefits from a new headlining being fitted due to the old one sagging at the rear. Current mileage is just under 87k with the car covering less than 500 miles in the last 10 years. The car drives very well as would be expected and is sold with a new MOT, a nos genuine exhaust was recently fitted, the tailgate and bonnet struts have just been replaced.
