Here we have a pampered from new original SD1 Vitesse with a warranted 51,000mls that I have owned and enjoyed for 22yrs, having one previous owner to me. Apart from the bonnet and front spoiler the paintwork is original and in excellent condition with no rust or damage. The interior including boot area is equally impressive with carpets and seats unworn. the headlining on the sunroof sags a little but like the rest is unmarked and undamaged. A Mota Lita woodrim wheel is fitted, the original steering wheel is with the car. Mechanically the car has never wanted for anything and there is a complete diary and record of everything that was ever done. A fitted stainless steel Rimmer sports exhaust, K&N filter and a power boost valve means the engine runs sweet as a nut with no flat spots or hesitation common on some cars. It is MOT'd every year and attracts attention each time in the MOT centre due to the fact an unrestored SD1 could be so good. Unfortunately apart from a couple of times a year on dry days, the car is not used and sits carefully stored in a garage, and so I have reluctantly decided to sell. I am asking £15,000 but will consider sensible offers from the right buyer. The car will be on display at the annual Slieve Donnard Hotel indoor classic car show 25th 26th and 27th January. Please call me if you want a lift from Airport or Ferry.

The Rover SD1 is still an imposing car on todays roads. Where most classics seem to have shrunk, the old Rover is still a big car by modern standards. There are just 10 Vanden Plas manual V8 cars left on the DVLA system so you are unlikely to come across another.
Within the last three years the .....

It is with a heavy heart that I'm offering for sale my pride and joy, my Rover SD1.
This car was owned by my grandfather for 25 years prior to his death in 2013. For complicated reasons the car was sold soon after and I then spent 18months tracking the car down and buying it back in April 2016.
