This is one of about 1000 of the last Vanden Plas SD1's built and there are few survivors especially in this ORIGINAL condition a real time warp. Its the 195 BHP fuel injected model and very fast at 128mph and 0to60 in 8. 5 seconds the police used them to catch the boy racers in there 2. 8 Ford Capri's. The car has just about every extra available in 1985 and was the best car Rover offered at the time.
