FOR SALE
A time warp Rover 25iL 1.4 16v with an incredible 5,422 miles from new.

EQUIPMENT
Rover grille, flush glazed laminated windscreen, tinted windscreen, ultra violet reducing glass, rear spoiler, body coloured bumpers, bright front door sill tread strips, styled twin halogen headlamps, headlamp road-levelling, lamps-on warning buzzer, rear wash/wipe, engine immobiliser, perimetric anti-theft alarm, remote central door locking, digital clock, burr walnut fascia insert, 60/40 split folding rear seat, security coded radio CD, roof mounted aerial. Factory options; Metallic paint, full size spare wheel, air conditioning, Anti-lock Braking System (ABS). Dealer options; Tailored Rover floor mats.

EXTERIOR
Finished in optional Starlight Silver Metallic, (Code MBB), the paintwork is exceptional thanks to the car covering an incredible genuine 5,422 miles from new. The retired long-term keeper from new insisted on keeping the car strictly garaged and with advancing years used the vehicle sparingly. All panels are pin straight and the underside still has factory labels attached. Tiny markings are visible only upon close inspection and there are some very light scratches to the rear bumper. Door shuts are free from grime and even have the blue factory cellophane protecting chrome sill finishers! Wheel arch apertures are amazing with even the coil springs still retain their white paint dabs. All trim sections, glass, lights and badges are pristine and the original Rover main dealer number plates and rear screen sticker are fitted. Representative of a nearly new showroom example, preserved to an amazing standard.

INTERIOR
The interior of this time warp example is in pristine original condition. The comfortable seats in Light Smokestone Geo seat facing, (Code LPR), are as new. The Burr walnut facia inserts are typical Rover standard specification and add a little luxury alongside features such as cut pile carpets and tinted glass. All controls and switchgear operate perfectly including the air conditioning and the Blaupunkt electronic tune radio CD. The boot area is as new with the Dunlop SP10 spare tyre unused and even the polystyrene holder with Jack and wheel brace still in the cellophane wrapping! Remarkable in every respect.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The punchy 4-cylinder transverse 1.4 16v DOHC engine with electronic multi-point fuel injection performs impeccably and produces 83bhp. A top speed of 105mph and 0-60mph in 11.8 secs are quoted. The pristine engine bay is virtually as new and displays factory plates, stickers, labels and even coloured PDI dabs! The 5-speed manual gearbox is light and a joy to use.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Standard 14” steel wheels with Rover wheel trims are fully intact with only light outer scratches on two of the trims. The factory Dunlop SP10 tyres remain fitted with virtually no wear, but renewal prior to regular use is advised purely down to age. The servo-assisted diagonal split dual circuit braking system features factory optional Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with front discs and rear drums to bring the car to an assured halt safely.

HISTORY FILE
This incredibly low mileage and effectively one owner example was registered new on the 24th September 2004 by Rover Main Dealer, Phoenix of Coventry. The original owner kept the car for 15 years until his sad passing in 2019 whereby ownership transferred to his daughter. The plastic document holds the original handbook/service book and there is every MOT certificate dating back to 2008 to fully verify the exceptionally low 5,422 miles from new. Further invoices, range sales brochure and two sets of remote keys with fobs and dealer keyrings complete the history file.

A perfect entry into affordable modern classic car ownership with an immaculate surviving model and certainly one of the best remaining, now deserving of an appreciative new owner and Rover aficionado.

MOT August 2020, HPI Clear.
