Lot 114: Rover 416Si Saloon
After the 400 had been in production for five years, Rover launched a completely new version in March 1995. The new car was based on the contemporary Honda Civic platform but had all new body panels and was powered by a Rover K-Series engine.
First registered on 1st April 1995, this particular car is the very first example of the revised car to roll off the production line (chassis number 001) and was first registered to Rover Group. Kept by them for the next eight years, it spent most of its life on display in the Gaydon Motor Museum until being acquired by the current vendor in 2003.
Presented in attractive Kingfisher Blue, the car has only covered 4,300 miles to date and is described as being in ‘as new’ condition throughout. Said to drive perfectly, it has just been fitted with a new battery and issued with a fresh MOT. Now that Rover has been taken over by the Chinese, this is your chance to own a slice of British motoring history.
