  • Description

    FAST AND LUXURIOUS - BRITAIN'S LATEST CAR, THE ROVER "2000." THE SMALLEST MADE BY THE ROVER COMPANY, IT'S POWERED BY A FOUR-CYLINDER 1978 C.C. ENGINE WITH A SINGLE OVERHEAD CAMSHAFT. A 9-1 COMPRESSION RATIO GIVES THE CAR A LIVELY PERFORMANCE: 0-30 M.P.H. IN 4.67 SECS OR 0 - 60 M.P.H. IN 14.35 SECS (0-50 K.P.H. IN 4.7 SECS, 0-100 K.P.H. IN 15.5 SECS).

    SPEED THROUGH THE GEARS IS 32.2 M.P.H. (51.8 K.P.H.) IN FIRST; 55 M.P.H. (88.5 KPH) IN SECOND; 84.3 MPH (135 KPH) IN THIRD; WITH THE MAXIMUM 103 MPH (165.5 KPH) REACHED IN TOP. TO HANDLE THE BRAKING NEEDED FOR SUCH A PACE PERFORMER, DISC BRAKES ARE FITTED FRONT AND REAR. FURTHER SAFETY FEATURES ARE PADDED SURROUNDS ON ALL INSTRUMENTS, NO PROJECTING EQUIPMENT, AND ANCHOR POINTS FOR SAFETY BELTS.

    BUCKET SEATS IN THE FRONT ARE BOTH FULLY RECLINING, AND THE STEERING WHEEL CAN BE ADJUSTED FOR RAKE. HEATER AND WINDSCREEN WASHERS ARE STANDARD, WHILE THE WINDSCREEN WIPERS HAVE VARIABLE SPEEDS.

    GOOD PETROL CONSUMPTION AND A 12-GALLON TANK PROVIDE FOR LONG, FAST JOURNEYS BETWEEN REFUELLING. PRODUCED IN FIVE STANDARD COLOURS, THE ROVER "2000" SELLS IN BRITAIN, TAX PAID, FOR GBP1,264.
