1989 Rover 827 Si

Low mileage example of this rare range-topper

Introduced in 1988 and fitted with the punchy Honda 2.7-litre V6, the 827Si incorporated Honda's four speed auto box with close ratios and lower overall gearing compared to the less sporty 800 models.

The press liked its performance - good for the 62mph dash in 8.4 seconds which is still impressive for a big, comfy saloon. With a price tag of over £14,000 at the time, (Jaguar XF money in today's world), they were reasonable sellers but were not highly prized as time went by which is probably why there are so few left today.

For those 'died in the wool' Rover fans out there, and there are many, this 827 Si represents the top of the late '80s range and has still only covered 82,696 miles from new AND it even comes with 1/2 a tank of petrol! It is MOT'd until March 2022 according to the DVLA website with no advisories showing and it certainly moved around nicely while taking the photos.

There are three former keepers on the V5C and a recent modest bill for work done for its previous MOT as well as its bookpack including handbook but no service record and a Haynes manual. 

This affordable Modern Classic still looks sharp more than 30 years on and we all rather like it - perhaps a sign of our age....
