Description Description
Prepare for the complete story of the ultimate engine, the Rover V8. Starting as a General Motors design in 1961, it was withdrawn three years later for cheaper technology.

The engine wound up with the UK company Rover by chance, and that’s where it gained special status when it entered production in 1967.

Rover V8 – The Story of the Engine brings you the story of this awesomely powerful, compact, and light engine and how it proved itself time and time again, and where it stands on the mountain today.

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.
