I've got an itch to own one of these fine automobiles some day, don't need one, just would like to have one as a modern classic.

The 75 would have been a big success if Bernd Pischetsrieder hadn't basically torpedoed it on launch day along with Rover itself.

I'm not a fan of these but they were the best car Rover built since the 2000. A 20 year old one is still remarkably rust free so the build quality was good enough. The 1.8 K Series was never up to much but BMW were in the throes of replacing it with their N42. An MG Estate version in black looks fine.
