On the Surface: This 2001 Rover 75 boasts just one owner since its purchase in January 2001. With a mere 66,000 miles on the odometer. The local origins of the vehicle are evident, having been initially sold by Sewards Rover of Bournemouth.

Maintenance: The car comes with an extensive maintenance history which totals around £9,500. Notably, a single invoice amounting to £1,421.45 outlines a comprehensive MOT test, major service, and associated parts and labour costs. These records reflect the commitment to ensuring the car’s optimal performance over the years. Additionally, a collection of old MOT certificates accompanies the vehicle.

History: Delving into the car’s history reveals its roots in a transaction with Sewards Rover, where it was initially acquired for £18,375.01. The original purchase invoice, dated January 2001, is securely filed alongside the original Rover commitment handover document.

The Model: The Rover 75 was manufactured from 1998 to 2005. It is a large family car and came in four-door saloon and five-door estate body styles. The 75 featured a range of engines from 1.8- to 2.5-litre sizes. Petrol engines provided were Rover’s four-cylinder K series in 1.8-litre guise and the quad cam KV6, offered in either short-stroke 2.0 which this one is or the revised 2.5-litre formats. The 2.0-litre was later dropped on introduction of the 1.8-litre turbo for emissions purposes.

Sale Insight: Offering a rare opportunity to acquire a well-maintained, one-owner, low mileage Rover 75. The documentation and local provenance make it a compelling choice for Rover enthusiasts or anyone in search of a modern classic.
