Dear All I would like to begin my search for my own rover p6. I know that there are ones available on sites such as eBay and Car and Classic but due to being at university I’m not able to easily buy a car right now so I would like to put feelers out to people who are thinking of selling their car over the summer period. That said I have an idea of what I would like, which is ideally a late series 2 1972/1973 rover 2000TC in any colour. I would prefer that it is either a good low mileage or freshly restored example. Preferred colours, if possible, would be: white, Tobacco leaf, lunar grey or almond. I would consider other colours for the right car. Preferably without a sunroof/vinyl roof. My preferred interior would be leather boxpleat, of any colour – though I am aware that 2000’s weren’t available with this so will be open to a good condition flatpleat. It needs to be roadworthy. Overall, I am after a very good roadworthy example of the series 2 2000TC. I am mainly based in North Wales, Leicester and Manchester and I’m willing to travel to find the right car, within reason.

AROnline’s first show report for 2017 comes from the beautiful town of Maastricht in the south of the Netherlands. Snowy gales, frosty temperatures and copious amounts of salt on the roads made classic car spotting in the parking areas a rather fruitless game, but inside the nicely heated halls of the Maastricht Convention Center a […]
The Jaguar F-Type gets a package of improvements for 2017, with upgrades to its infotainment system, the addition of a new 400 Sport launch-edition model and a world-first ReRun app which combines vehicle data with GoPro video to enhance the driving experience.
