Technical specifications, photos and description:
The Rover P4 series was a group of saloon automobiles produced by the Rover Company from 1949 through to 1964 designed by Gordon Bashford. The P4 designation is factory terminology for the group of cars and was not in day-to-day use by ordinary owners. who would have used the appropriate consumer designations for their models (such as 60. 75. and 90).
Additionally the P4 shape saw the creation of 'Jet 1' - the Rover company's foray into Jet powered vehicles. The Rover Jet technology was later used by the Rolls Royce company. becoming the Rolls Royce Jet Engines we see on aircraft today. The original Jet 1 is on display in the London Science museum
At the same time as the four-cylinder version was introduced. the top-end P4 90 with a more-powerful 2. 6 litres (160 cu in) six appeared. This engine produced 90 hp (67 kW) and could reach 90 mph (145 km/h). When it was replaced by the P4 100 in 1959. 35. 03 had been produced. making it the most popular variant in the series.
Testing the Ninety in 1954 The Motor magazine recorded a top speed of 90. 0 mph (144. 8 km/h) and acceleration from 0–60 mph (97 km/h) of 18. 9 seconds. A fuel consumption of 20. 3 miles per imperial gallon (13. 9 L/100 km; 16. 9 mpg-US) was recorded. The test car cost £1297 including taxes.  An owner of a Ninety at the time noted that although the suspension was very soft and comfortable on a straight road. and as the engine was so quiet when waiting at traffic lights one sometimes wondered if it had stopped.
