Rover SD1 design inspiration
BMC 1800/Rover SD1: separated at birth?
David Bache is today considered to be one of the finest post-war British car designers – and I certainly back that opinion. His SD1 was certainly inspired by the creations of Pininfarina, though – and although the SD1 was a finely balanced, beautiful design, I present some pictures that will show that his most British of creations had Italian genes. See what you think.
