2001 Rover 75 2.5V6 Club Special Order 35000 miles fsh For Sale

Immaculate and stunning “special order” 2001 (Y) rover 2.5 v6 club

34600 miles with a full service history

Probably one of the very best Rover 75’s available anywhere & certainly a very low mileage example with an impeccable service & mot history with all bills and service stamps to support !!!

Genuine and exceptionally low mileage of just 34,600 miles and has had the cam belt & tensioners changed less than 5000 miles ago

The Rover 75, was launched in 1999 under the stewardship of BMW and remained in production until 2005 when MG Rover finally closed. Well preserved examples now are increasing in value. This car was originally ordered by eastern Rover of chelmsford with a number of “special order” factory options in order to serve as a demonstration car. It was registered on 31st march 2001. after 23 days and just 35 miles on the 24th april 2001 it was purchased by Mr C Murphy who kept the car until i took ownership. It is registered in my name at my home address and currently taxed. So, 2 main owners. In it’s 18 years but all owners have maintained the car to the highest standards. Accordin. To Honest John review it is a marque on the up with pre facelift cars having better specification and more sought after. The facelift cars look absolutely awful !!

I have a current car analytics report (hpi) showing no adverse information for my car.

Number plates and plate changes

The car has had a personalised registration number put on the car by it's previous owner. It has reverted to the registration number given to the car when it was new.
Y221HNO - Eastern Rover.

Changed to
MPY 85 - Mr C Murphy.
reverted to Y221HNO when sold

Current registration Y221HNO)

My car comes with a complete Rover MG main dealer & specialist service history to date. It comes with many invoices for virtually every bit of work undertaken on the car. This is one of the most pampered and cared for Rover 75‘s, giving the new owner cost & trouble free motoring.

External condition.

The car looks absolutely resplendent, in Arden green mica metallic clearcoat paint. This is a rare Rover colour. The colour is stunning. The condition of the paintwork is excellent with no scuffs to the bumpers and minor marks commensurate with age but in keeping with a much newer car. The chrome work to all areas of the car is perfect and the chrome door handle sill strip and mirror covers give a prestige look to the car. Tyres all are matching good year with good tread all round. 2 fitted recently with less than 1000 miles on them. The Rover Crown alloy wheels are in excellent condition all round. These are original and not refurbished. There is a get you home spare wheel which has never been used.

Interior condition

The interior of the car is excellent and quite clearly has been cared for well maintained. It has never been smoked in. The ash tray and cigar lighter are unused carpets are clean and in immaculate condition. Rover overmats are also immaculate. Carpets in the boot area are “like new” when traditionally are stained and dirty in the load carrying area. All the seats are spotlessly clean in oatmeal leather & charcoal piping. All the seats are excellent and still look immaculate. The passenger seat and rear seats look as though they have never been sat in - they are immaculate. All wood trim is bright and polished with no cracking or scratching. All switchgear is fully operational, includin. The air conditioning & climate control blows ice cold. There is no “lift” to the dashboard and the headlining is immaculately clean with no sagging.

Mechanical condition

Mechanically the car is excellent, as one would expect of a car with genuine low mileage of 34,600 miles and full service history predominantly by Rover main dealers & specialists. The 2.5 litre v6 engine is smooth, quiet, does not smoke or burn oil. There is no evidence of any oil leaks from either engine or transmission. The cooling system is all ok with no leaks or water usage. All fluids are clean and up to the correct levels. The automatic transmission is quiet and changes up and down without fuss or bother whether in sport, winter or economy. Performance is brisk and economy is as per the handbook. The car has had 13 oil changes at services equaling an astonishing oil change every 2661 miles !!!!.... against a recommended rover service interval at 10000 miles. That is why my car is in such good mechanical condition

Important note : the cambelt and tensioners have all been replaced in 2014 by British Legends, an Austin Rover, MG and Land Rover specialist of Southend cost of £450. the car has travelled only 4.5k miles since. I have bills and invoices for nearly £3,500.00.

The car has had no expense spared in it’s mechanical upkeep throughout it’s life evidenced by the masses of bills and service stamps. 13 main service stamps & bills in in it’s 34,600 miles and 22 years !!!

One or two tiny marks to be expected most have been “touched in” to protect the paintwork by the previous owners. The car is exceptional & outstanding for the age and mileage of the vehicle. It has to be one of the very best Rover 75 2.5 v6 models anywhere

Aany inspection is welcome

This must be one of the very best and lowest mileage Rover 75’s anywhere, combining the stunning but economical 2.5 litre engine with the massive specification, and the amazing colour scheme of the car. Whoever buys my car will be chuffed to bits. I am open to offers for my beautiful car but it will not be sold for a few hundred pounds so please no silly offers of “cash waiting can be there later today” type offers, they will be ignored and declined.

I have other photos available of the underside of the car, close up of the drivers seat, dipstick showing golden oil and others. If you would like to see photos of any particular detail please ask.

I have described this car as accurately & comprehensively, but most importantly…as honestly as possible for everyones benefit. Please see the pictures, which speak volumes for the car.

Please feel free to call me (Peter) where I shall be pleased to answer your questions. My car is advertised elsewhere and the advert will be ended when sold.

I strongly reccommend that if you are able, view and test drive the car for yourself. I am happy to arrange viewings in Chelmsford, Essex.
