One of AROnline’s former ‘Project’ cars is now available for sale. The gold Rover 214 SLi, a very early example of the R8 on a G-plate, was first acquired by AROnline’s Features Editor, Mike Humble, back in 2010 and has been known to the site ever since.
Its current owner, Ben Adams, has reluctantly decided to part with the car to make way for something a little more suitable for his daily motorway commute, meaning the R8 has to go.
At £550, it seems pretty good value for a well-sorted and increasingly rare example of what was arguably Rover’s finest hour – I’ve seen the car myself and, while it isn’t perfect, it’s way, way better than most of its age, especially when you consider it has travelled over 160,000 miles.
It’s based in the Midlands, not far from the M6 and, if you’re interested, you can view it here. We’d love to see it kept in the family…
