Rover 200 BRM LE

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Drive-it Day Special The 50 Greatest Drives - David Brown

The BRM LE is based on the sporty Rover 200vi, and is Rover’s homage to its 1960s col­lab­o­ra­tion with the BRM motor racing team. Ex­ter­nally, you can’t miss the Brook­lands Green liv­ery with that or­ange snout – a nod to that car­ried by racing BRMs in the 1960s – sur­round­ing a shiny wire mesh grille – plus BRM badges on the sides. The in­te­rior is equally im­pres­sive with red quilted leather and brushed aluminium fit­tings. It’s a real driver’s car that is not only com­fort­able but also fea­tures ex­cel­lent road­hold­ing with its Torsen dif­fer­en­tial, vari­able valve con­trol, close-ra­tio gear­box, lower ride height, 16in al­loys and stiffer sus­pen­sion. Great.
