Ever since the debut of the 75 in 1998, there has been a demand for a coupe version. Its elegant and retro styling perfectly suited to that of a comfortable GT-style car. Finally it has arrived, well in a concept form anyway. Featuring Rover's bold new 'V8' grille the 75 has a more elegant stance than was expected. When(if) it goes into production it will be powered by a 1.8Turbo, 2.5V6 and a range-topping 4.6V8, there is also a chance of a 2.0litre common-rail diesel. The 75 Coupe could go into production by next year and could be the first fruit to blossom from the deal between FSO-Daewoo and MG Rover, to produce 75's in Poland. Whatever happens this has to be the most beautiful Rover in a long-long time.

I'm seriously considering putting my name down for a V8 model, depending on how healthy the company is when I want a new coupe.

Sounds great, at least somebody is willing to help keep the British motoring industry alive,lol. Sadly when it comes to resale time you will get a shock, for example an early, pre-facelift MG ZT 260 V8 was around 28.000 when new and was going for around 15.500 recently and had hardy any miles on the clock. If the 75 V8 is around 34.000 in saloon form, well you can do the math...I mean they are great cars and have a certain charm about them but I would wait untill they were used and get a bargain.
