The wait is over! The Rover 75 DVD-Video or Blu-ray Disc, called Code Name R40 is on sale now directly from Producer John Clancy’s website. Our man Mike Humble has helped gather some of the most important names in the car’s development and, in doing so, he and John have created and told the definitive story of the Rover 75/MG ZT’s development and launch.
Some of the people to have been interviewed include Peter Morgan – Rover Group R40 Project Director, Ron Brown – Rover Design Engineer, Denis Chick – MG Rover Director of Product Communications, Kevin Jones – MG Rover Product Manager, Rob Oldaker (above) – MG Rover Director of Product Development, Ian Pogson – MG Rover Engine Development Engineer and Martyn Knowles – Editor of Car Mechanics magazine.
If you are a proper R40 nerd, an enthusiastic owner or just a fan of the model, we promise there will be something for everyone. Mike Humble devised the introduction and has narrated the feature. You can watch a video preview, below – it’s worth a look.
Mike said: ‘It’s been a two-year toil of running around the country, gathering together long-lost contacts and getting people sat down to tell their story, the actual story and the true story. One thing does come over well on this special documentary is the passion the involved automotive legends and owners still have all these years after the car was launched. To everyone who stepped forward to contribute, John Clancy and I thank you all – you did a great job.’
