1999 Rover 820 SI Auto 57,000 (Warranted) £700 + buyers premium


The Rover 800 replaced the SD1 in 1986 and continued until it was replaced by the Rover 75 in 1998. The two cars ran concurrently for a short period of time and the Rover 820si here is one of those very late models. Already an unusual sight on the roads these days and a great way into classic motoring, these cars are very much underappreciated. Sharing the same floorpan and many other components from the Honda Legend and fitted with a spritely 2.0 litre engine with automatic box this example has covered a mere 57,000 miles from new and comes with full service history. Overall this example is in excellent all round condition with a very clean interior indeed, bright alloy wheels and nice bright red paintwork.
The ‘Si’ was a higher specification model just beneath the top of the range and larger engined Sterling. This example runs and drives very well according to the owner and is very well equipped. Being sold without reserve and complete with a recent MOT and ready to go, this car represents very good value for money for the aspiring classic enthusiast or cheap everyday motoring for someone looking for some reliable and comfortable motoring.

Auctioneers notes: A great starter classic.
