The BLMC Board meet at Solihull to view scale models of the proposed replacements for the Rover P6 and Triumph 2000/2500. David Bache of Rover had produced six scale clay models – five hatch-backs and a notch-back For consideration by the Board.

P10 however was not the only contender for the replacement. Triumph, still independent of Rover but part of British Leyland, had been working on a replacement for their own 2000 saloons codenamed Puma.

Both projects were bought together for assessment, but the Board opted for P10. Puma was thought to be too conventional in style. The chosen P10 alternative was selected at the viewing.

The P10 is now renamed RT1.
