Rover 200 Cabriolet

The R8-series Rover 200 that ran from 1989 to ’95 saw the launch of a soft-top during the second half of its career – which means early versions had the original plain-looking ‘face’, usurped in 1993 for the modified front complete with chrome Rover front grille and a more upmarket image.

Available in 214 and 216 guides depending on how much power the buyer required, this mid-size Rover Cabriolet sat above the soft-top Mini and Metro in the line-up, and proved a popular buy throughout the early ’90s. Nowadays it’s something of a modern-classic bargain.

Great car - but what about spares availability?

No Z3?

I regained 20 years of youth when I bought my copper red 2.0i, love it. It sticks to the road like glue. There's no better feeling than having the wind in your hair and a responsive pedal under the right foot.
No problem with spares or repairs, because of the number of these cars out there the prices stay low.
