The usual reason for replacement is collision damage.
- Corporate shenanigans changed the company a lot by the 70s, and Rover was owned by British Leyland.
- Although there were a few Rover-made cars released in the ‘80s, none of them had the word Rover on any of the badging. Instead, they were called Austins, but they did have a similar, Viking-inspired badge.
- During the 1960s, Rover was forced to cancel several promising car projects. That's because Rover became a corporate partner with Jaguar, and some of the projects they were working on were too similar! The Rover P8 was just one of the victims of this partnership and a prototype was never built.
- The MG Rover Group was the last mass-production car company in the UK to be owned by domestic owners.
- The Rover name has had a turbulent history, but they achieved some amazing things. In March 1950, they unveiled the prototype of the Rover JET1. It was the first car to ever run off a gas turbine engine. It could reach a speed of 88mph! However, it did manage 150mph during speed tests. The JET1 is now on display at the London Science Museum.
