1992 Ex - Works Rover Factory Tom Cat 220 Turbo Coupe For Sale

This Rover 220 Turbo Tom Cat is rather special and is one of two pre-production cars that Rover built especially to break a number of speed and endurance records in 1992. This was the most powerful production car built by Rover capable of 150 mph and 0-60 in just 6.2 seconds. In the summer of 1992 two pre-production cars were stripped back to a bare shell by the Rover development team, checked and rebuilt with various modifications including a roll cage, large capacity fuel tank, racing seat and various safety devices in readiness for the speed records on the 29th August 1992 at the Millbrook test track in Bedfordshire. The entire team working on the car had also been involved with the development of the production model. The speed and endurance records they broke were previously held by Porsche, BMW and Bentley and Alfa Romeo. These cars were set up to run at a top speed of just under 160mph. Six speed records were broken and ratified by the RAC ranging from an average speed over 10 miles of 155.53 mph to averaging 138.43 mph over 25 hours. Some of this was done in conditions of poor visibilty which can be seen in the video of the event which can be viewed on our website. The only mileage that the car is believed to have done was on the testing grounds when it achieved the record and this amounts to approximately 7,000 miles. This is all documented on a video taken of the team and cars in action during the record attempt. It is finished in white with the relevant advertising decals of that time. Other than a few miles driven on normal roads it remains the same today as it was at the time of the record breaking event. The overall condition of the car remains superb as you would expect of a car that has had such limited use On file we have several data sheets showing recorded times as well as a promotional photograph of the car outside the test centre and a letter from the RAC ratifying the speed record. This car is not registered for road use, but we have a vin number and it should be possible to register it if need be which will be the responsibility of the next custodian should they wish to do so. Performance is certainly very quick and smooth !
