Rover power and luxury, in a new, exciting form. The Rover 800 Fastback. With responsive performance and handling, and all the luxury you expect of the Rover marque.
The Rover 820 Fastback has a 2.0 litre 4-cylinder engine developing 100 PS. Traditional Rover luxury includes the hand-crafted burr walnut in the fascia; the adjustable steering wheel; and height and lumbar support adjustment for the driver’s seat. A screened glass sunroof and electric front windows are among the refinements.
The Rover 820e Fastback is powered by the Rover-designed M16e 16-Valve D.O.H.C. 120 PS engine. Subtle exterior hallmarks include the deeper front spoiler, and low profile tyres.
The Rover 820Se Fastback is still more highly specified. Distinguished from the outside by its wide 15 in. wheels, special wheel trims and coachline, this model offers the convenience of a power operated sunroof, and a superb stereo sound system. Four-speed automatic transmission is optional at extra cost.
