The Rover SD1. It was a car that shook the world.

He even became a car of the year in 1977. Although: for more cars that title has been a curse rather than a blessing ...

A car that drove its buyers to despair. The 3500 cc V8s were made at the time the British Empire was crumbling at an accelerated pace.

But the Rover SD1s were beautiful and impressive. Even if they had bad luck on the side of the road.

The later the better

But never 100% reliable ... That the later versions were considerably better? That could not save the matter. The Rover SD1 had already established itself firmly in the line of vehicles that everyone knew how bad they were on birthdays.

For the owners it usually remained a car with which they got a love / hate relationship.

In AMK number 8, the - we hope - full summer issue - Rein de Ruiter tells the story of those beautiful failures.

In the meantime, Rein has disposed of his Rover SD1
And Rein regrets that ...

All right, learn the story in AMK number 8

And have a look around to see if you too can find a nice Rover SD1
