Car of the Month : February 2002

Guillaume Stutter’s Rover SD1.

This 2600 Vanden Plas was produced for the French market with a “no deletion” options list during 1984. The intention was for the UK manufacturer to take the fight to the new products from Renault (the 25), Saab (the 9000) and Audi (the 100).

This particular example owned by Guillaume Stutter is a well-used, but cherished example of the breed. The car was renovated during 1998 – and up to this point, it was used to regular pan-European journeys. This car is also in arguably the nicest colour: Moonraker Blue.
