The 50th Anniversary of the Rover V8 Engine
11 – 13 August 2017 Wroxall Abbey, Warwickshire

2017 marks the 50th anniversary of Rover launching the V8 engine. This engine was developed as the power plant for the Rover P5 which gained the B suffix indicating the engines origins from Buick. The engine was subsequently installed into the Rover P6, SD1, Range Rover and Land Rovers. During its lifetime it appeared in other non–Rover marques such as the MGBGT V8, TVR, and Morgan.


In celebration of this engine, the Joint Rover Clubs of Great Britain, consisting of the Rover Sports Register, The Rover P4 Drivers Guild, The P5 Club, The Rover P6 Club, The SD1 Club, The Rover 200/400 Club, The Rover Coupe Owners Club, The Rover 75 and MG ZT owners club and Rover 800 Club will be joining forces to stage one big celebratory “Rover Fest” weekend in August 2017.

Although our cars were not fitted with a V8 be assured of a great day.
