1952 ROVER ‘JET 1’


Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Britain’s Car Club Heroes -

With more than 1000 cars dis­played across six of the NEC’s halls, this was one of the trick­i­est cat­e­gories to judge. The panel was look­ing for au­then­ticty, qual­ity of works­man­ship and a show-stop­ping ‘wow fac­tor’. They cer­tainly got that with Alan But­tle‘s replica of the Rover’s 1952 Jet 1 pro­to­type, which ap­peared on the Rover Sports Reg­is­ter’s stand. It was paraised for its en­thralling jet en­gine start-ups, en­cap­su­lat­ing what the show was all about and demon­strat­ing ‘how to make dreams hap­pen.’
