1986 Rover SD1 Vitesse Twin Plenum Targa Red 3500 V8 for sale
1986 Twin Plenum Rover SD1 Vitesse.
MOT'd to July 2014
Taxed to end of September 2013
I have owned this Rover SD1 Twin Plenum Vitesse since 2006 and it has been a pleasure to own and share with others as its always getting lots of admiring glances and comments!
I have actually owned this lovely example twice as I sold it back in 2009 to a nice chap in Newport Wales and then bought it back from him as he wasn't getting the free time to use it. I had really missed it after I sold it and it is/was one of those rare cars that l would always buy back if the circumstances were right. The time now has come to sell again as I am not getting the time to use it now either and a car like this is always better out on show where people can enjoy it rather than locked up in a garage hibernating.
The car wants for nothing as I have always made sure it gets everything its ever needed as can be seen in the listing below and all the other members in the SD1 club in Scotland will tell you how anal I am when it comes to looking after TP Vitesse.
These are not expensive cars to run if you buy a good one and this one is 100% reliable. 30mpg is easily achieved and insurance for me being a 41 year old is only £120 per year! I would happily drive this car anywhere without a bootful of tools as its always been maintained to a very high level throughout its life and really benefits from that fact now. It has always been garaged throughout its life and this is probably the main reason it is still in such great condition even if it is now 27 years old.
The previous owner to me who bought the car in 1987 from Beadles of Dartford where it was the Directors car for the first few months of its life. really made sure it wanted for nothing and the history file with this car is very very extensive and details everything - this really protects the value of this Vitesse.
SD1's never did have a great reputation in terms of reliability but good ones are starting to attract big money at long last and this is especially the case for the most desirable of the SD1 range. the Twin Plenum Vitesse.
This one won't be the cheapest Vitesse ever advertised but I always believe you get what you pay for and this one is worth every penny I expect to sell it for as there are probably only a handful of SD1's left in such great condition. never mind the most sought after SD1 - the Twin Plenum Vitesse variant in arguably the best colour for the Vitesse of Targa Red.
3 previous owners (1st owner dealership - managing directors car Beadles of Dartford)
Rare Twin Plenum model - only around 500 produced Twin Plenum (twin throttles for greater power) was engineered by Lotus for homologation for the European & British Touring Car championships at the time in the 80's
Incredible history file from previous owner
Air Conditioning - belt disconnected for better fuel economy
Original Radio Cassette
Full Stainless Steel Exhaust System including tubular manifolds.
New Gaz suspension and new standard Vitesse height springs all round.
Dashboard and door insert wood refurbished
Indoor Car Cover supplied
4 x Pirelli P6000 tyres that have only had 5000 miles use since new
The car will revert back to its original demonstrator plate issued at Beadles of Dartford in 1986 of C222TMX
Videos below that I have filmed over the years I have owned the car. The clip shot in my driveway is from 2008 which. even though it is 5 years ago. the car still looks exactly the same now in terms of car condition

Comments and questions to the seller:from Tony Rome, dated 17 november 2016
This car was more recently for sale on the Car & Classic web site (http://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C792509) with a price of £15,000 and was apparently sold. Not a bad markup on the £6K it was available for a couple of years earlier, eh?

I am prepared to offer more than the price seen, BUT, I won't have the cash for about four weeks, and there is a little matter of getting it from you to me on the south coast. Any suggestions, I can't drive that far these days.
