Description Description
One of the best saloon cars to come out of Britain in the 1960s and the winner of the first-ever European Car of the Year award – the Rover P6 combined a wealth of technical innovation with a distinctive appearance that incorporated exactly the right degree of Italianate sharp-suited appearance for its time. It was, and remains, a great car to drive, and all these qualities were combined with the space and practicality of a four-seat family saloon. 

Rover P6: 2000, 2200, 3500: The Complete Story documents its evolution from the earliest ideas in the 1950s to the end of production in 1977 and describes all the models with specification tables and paint and trim options, including NADA and Federal cars. It remembers the motorsport successes and failures and records the manufacturing process at Solihull and CKD overseas. It includes a useful chapter on buying and owning a Rover P6 and presents purchase prices, chassis, engine and gearbox number sequences, together with factory registration and production numbers.

James Taylor

After graduating from Oxford and pursuing further academic studies at Reading, James Taylor spent 12 years working in central government. However, the lure of writing about cars – which he was doing in his spare time – proved too great and he decided to turn it into a career. James has now written well over 100 books in all, and among them have been several definitive one-make or one-model titles. He has written for enthusiast magazines in several countries, has translated books from foreign languages, and even delivers effective writing training in both the public and private sectors. He spent the best part of ten years as the editor of Land Rover Enthusiast magazine and has always counted the products of the old Rover Company and of Land Rover as his favourite subject. He also co-organised the “15 Years of Rover V8” event at Donington in 1982.
