The Rover 825 used two versions of the Honda V6 but was fitted with the Rover KV6 after 1996. And it's the KV6 that's also used in the ZT.

Good performance and economy in 827 form, very pleasant interior, 2.0-litre engines are surprisingly gutsy, excellent visibility
Decent ride and rewarding handling. ZT190 is quick while the V8-engined rear-drive 260 hugely entertaining. Proving reliable and now quite cheap. Excellent club back-up.
