Unusual 2000 Turbo in Oz

Post by roverdriver » Sun Oct 12, 2008 1:21 am

A couple of years ago I acquired this car from a fellow Rover enthusiast.

Unfortunately I have too many other projects on the go, so have not been able to do any work on it yet. Its special interest lies in the fact that it has been fitted with a turbocharger.

The whole job looks very professional, although I doubt if it was an ex-factory modification.
It has a fabricated grille

The front and rear bumper bars are different from original

And extra instruments on the dash.

I am searching for any information that might be useful on the history of the car. Does anyone know of a similarly modified car anywhere?
Dane, roverdriver, not a Viking!
