An outstanding Rover 214SEi with only 13,187 miles and 20 service stamps!

EQUIPMENT
Duotone paint finish, Rover grille with chrome surround, bodyside mouldings with red insert, grey rear applique, green tinted glass, windscreen shadeband, remote tailgate release, remote fuel filler release, remote adjust door mirrors, burr walnut fascia insert, central door locking, permetric anti-theft alarm with engine immobiliser, driver’s docket pocket, passenger vanity mirror, coin tray, bright door sill tread strips, electronic tune radio cassette R652.

EXTERIOR
This beautifully preserved early Rover 214SEi is finished in stunning Duotone Pearlescent Nightfire Red over Tempest Grey, (Code RDX). Having covered just 13,187 miles from new with husband and wife ownership throughout, the factory paint finish is simply remarkable and all original panels and bodywork are near pristine. Tiny touched in scratches are visible on close inspection, most notable on the boot lid edge. Trim sections, badges and rubbers are fully intact with only a light scuff to offside front bumper corner. Originality seekers will be pleased to see the supplying Rover main dealer number plates, rear screen sticker and credit card style VIN plate in the front windscreen. The SEi model was a desirable choice within the Rover 200 Series range and once a common sight on our roads. This strictly garaged rare survivor displays its low mileage and low owner credentials with true pride.

INTERIOR
A typically plush interior to be expected from Rover features Renaissance seat facings in Granite colour scheme, (Code LOY). Entirely reflective of its pampered existence and 13,187 miles, the interior is in perfect showroom condition with no wear or damage to the upholstery whatsoever. The fascia, trim and walnut insert are as new. The pristine cut pile carpets having been protected from new by carpet mats and the often-troublesome headlining is perfect in every respect. All functions and controls operate perfectly including the original Rover R652 stereo cassette. Very comfortable and awfully nostalgic!

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Fitted with the K-Series 16v double overhead camshaft engine with electronic multi-point fuel injection, this 1396cc unit develops 102bhp at 6000rpm and 127Nm torque at 5000rpm. This is enough to achieve a top speed of 113mph and 0-60 is dealt with in an impressive 10.1 seconds. Evidenced by 20 stamped entries in the service book, this well-maintained example feels tight and delivers responsive acceleration and a civilised driving manner. The engine bay is immaculate and displays factory stickers, labels and bulkhead VIN stamp. Gear changes via the 5-speed manual box are light and precise, affirming once more the cars ultra-low mileage credentials and pampered existence.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The factory 14in steel wheels wear the original and correct Prestige wheel trims which remain as new with no damage. There is plenty of tread remaining on the factory fitted Dunlop SP9 175/65 R14 tyres but renewal prior to regular use would be a wise precaution simply due to age. The spare wheel and tyre have never seen the road and the tyre still has the original label and coloured banding! Also, the unused jack and wheel brace remain in the polystyrene holder. Diagonally split and dual-circuit servo assisted brakes offer assured straight-line stopping power.

HISTORY FILE
Supplied new on the 5th November 1993 by SMC Rover of Slough, this example has covered an amazing 13,187 miles from new. A new vehicle order form and sales invoice is made out to Mr John Savage who owned the car until 2017. Upon his passing the car was transferred to his wife Hazel who remains the only other keeper. At a cost illustrated on the sales invoice of £10,645, a part exchange allowance was given for his 1990 Nissan Sunny that had covered just 10,500 miles! Mr and Mrs Savage adored the car and kept it immaculate and strictly garaged. Despite the low mileage, the service book contains a remarkable 20 stamped service entries, 19 of which are the supplying dealer, SMC Rover, with every supporting invoice in the history folder! The grey Rover wallet holds all handbooks, guides, code cards and dealership point of sale literature and there are three Rover keys. A further file of paperwork includes previous MOT certificates and an original Rover 214 SEi brochure.

It is difficult to comprehend a superior example with this car’s low owner, low mileage and amazing service history credentials. One for the Rover collector and avid enthusiast to preserve and treasure.

MOT October 2020, HPI Clear.
