Relisted due to another non paying. non contacting timewaster (cooltony86)

This time listed with no reserve. one bid could win it.

The  V8-S is probably the rarest and most sought after version of the Rover SD1. as it was only in production from 1979 to 1980. There are now very few left.

This car is well know within the SD1 owners club. It was displayed on the club stand at the NEC Classic Motor Show in 2010 and 2011.

It has also been featured in Practical Classics magazine.

I have owned this car since March 2008. prior to that it had been standing in the previous owners garage since 1994. The car was restored between 2008 and 2010. with a full photographic record.

Below is a list of the work done during the restoration.

Although this car is one of the best SD1s available. there a couple of minor points I should mention. Firstly. there is a slight weep from the gearbox rear seal. It has never been a problem and has not been mentioned as an advisory on the MOT.

Although the air con system is complete. I have never recommisioned it as it would require some updating for modern coolant.

Cash on collection.
