A focus on Rover

After Rover started car production in 1908, it was with robust, middle-class vehicles that it established itself. This image was consolidated after World War Two with cars such as the P4 and P5, giving the marque its ‘Auntie’ nickname.

As if to rebel, Rover bit back with the radical P6 in 1963, which expanded into V8 realms in 1968, the same year Rover became a part of British Leyland. Troubled years followed, although Rover still captured headlines with its impressive SD1 in 1976. Sold to British Aerospace in 1988, there was a national outcry when BMW took over in 1994; the loss-making company was broken up in 2000, with MG Rover struggling through until 2005 before it went bankrupt. The Rover name is currently dormant.
