Absolutely Stunning!

The last of the P-Series Rovers, the P6 was introduced in October 1963. Designed in-house by Spen King, David Bache and Gordon Bashford, the newcomer featured a pontoon chassis, pushrod independent front suspension and four-wheel disc brakes. Winner of the first European Car of the Year Award in four-cylinder guise, the P6 could be had with 3.5-litre V8 power from 1968. Equipped with three-speed automatic transmission as standard, Motor magazine found the Rover 3500 capable of 0-60mph in 9.5 seconds and 117mph. Launched in 1970, MKII variants had boot-mounted batteries, power bulge bonnets and revised rear lights. The Series II, or Mark II as it was actually named by Rover, was launched in 1970. All variants carried the battery in the boot and had new exterior fixtures such as a plastic front air intake (to replace the alloy version), new bonnet pressings (with V8 blips even for the 4-cylinder-engined cars) and new rear lights. The interior of the 3500 and 2000TC versions was updated with new instrumentation with circular gauges and rotary switches. The old-style instrumentation with a linear speedometer and toggle switches continued on the 2000SC versions.
