First off, it looks awesome bang up to date for the year it was built, oh and then it would have been mid engined. Making this Rover a true sports car with this ultra-modern configuration. In one write up over on AROnline, it described as much more than a styling exercise. It was apparently fully reviewed for production with a full mockup of an interior created. What a shame it wasn’t put forward and made it to the road. It could have changed the whole future for Rover. But maybe at the time it was just seen as a step to far for the brand.
