SUMMARY

A rare surviving example of Rover's more powerful Twin Plenum SD1.

DESCRIPTION

  • Essentially an homologation special, Rover introduced the Lotus-developed twin-plenum inlet manifold on the road-going Vitesse in 1985 to keep the factory-supported race cars at the head of the field
  • The official power output of 190bhp remained unchanged but, in reality, it jumped to between 210 and 220bhp
  • This rare survivor is presented in Silver Leaf with a grey cloth interior
  • Owned by Tim Clarke, son of Ken Clarke Motorsport, well-known in the world of SD1 performance development
  • Recommissioned by them and also fitted with a new tank, high-performance fuel pump and a bespoke stainless exhaust system
  • Has had the benefit of an XJS front brake conversion, a popular upgrade to the SD1 in period
  • The car is supplied with a lovely history file with lots of invoices and receipts, including one for a replacement/rebuilt engine
  • Guided very sensibly for such a rare and desirable car, and allowing for some minor TLC to take it to the next level
