While the retro-styled Rover 75 was a product of the 1990s, the version you see here didn’t go on sale until 2004 – and was really rather special. The switch from front- to rear-wheel drive was a neat engineering trick, whilst its use of a 4.6-litre ex-Mustang engine made it one of the best Q-cars of all time. Output was a mighty 256bhp, resulting in a top speed of 151mph and 0-60 in seven seconds – impressive for a model that still looked like a regular Rover. Sadly, just a couple of hundred V8s were built before MG Rover went bust in 2005.
