1996 P518CVP ROVER 114 GTa

Unusual Rover hot-hatch; just 39,000 miles from new; well cared-for; parking sensors; something a bit different and great fun to drive

Dating from August 1996 this MY96.5 face-lift model was part of the Metro replacement, known as the R6 and badged 100 series. It featured new bumpers, sills, boot handle, lights, bonnet and grill over its predecessor. As a 114GTa, this little gem was Rover’s zestier offering and as such, packed the K-Series 1.4 four-pot, a rev-counter, sports seats, sports suspension and GSi alloy wheels giving it quicker acceleration and a higher top speed over its stablemates. It was only available as a three-door. Showing just 39,000 miles this sweet little GTa has had just four owners from new and looks to be in good order, with many models suffering the ravages of body corrosion, where-as this looks to be clean.

The car features remote locking, a sunroof and parking sensors with in car digital display. The car is said to deliver a surprising turn of speed and huge smiles per mile and is certainly a rare little beast with few left registered and on the road. The history file includes the owner’s pack and service book showing it was first registered to a Mr C Marshall of Birmingham by dealer R. H Collier of Tyseley, Birmingham and includes two stamps, both by the supplying dealer dating from 1996 and 1997 at 6,182 miles and 12,300 respectively. The file also includes the V5C, current MOT running until May 2021 showing two minor advisories for sill covers fitted, 14 old MOTs confirming its low mileage and a selection of maintenance and parts invoices dating back to May 1997 plus original warranty certificate. One for the Rover fan and not to be missed!
