If it weren’t for time, space and money, I’d have probably bought at least 50 cars already this year (I also say that every year, but hey). Irrespective of that, this one’s a bit special.
According to howmanyleft.co.uk, there were only 18 Rover 216 Vitesse EFis still registered in the UK by the end of 2014, of which only four were still licensed. A rare beast indeed, made all the more scarce by the fact that this white example appears to be pretty much rot free.
With just 22k on the clock from new, a full service history and great bodywork and interior, at £1,495 I can’t help but think this is a bit of a bargain – even if it doesn’t currently have an MoT – though I do often wonder why some sellers don’t bother, as by putting a new ticket on the thing, you’d open it up to a much wider audience…
Anyway, can somebody please go here and buy it, because, now that the AROnline Project Maestro is currently adorning the driveway, I’m pretty sure another Austin-Rover car purchase could well be a catalyst for divorce in the Cheetham household…
