Re: CHESHIRE CLASSIC CAR & MOTORCYCLE SHOW - 27th MAY

I attended both events last year with the Cabriolet and have been in previous years with other cars. There is always a good turnout.

Re: Cabriolet 220 turbo

Lots of conflicting information on these cars. Glad you said that it makes a difference as I was going to fit them anyway.

Re: Cabriolet 220 turbo

Thank you. Any advice is welcome and I will keep an eye on the inner wings. I did think of strengthening the car a bit with strut braces but I read that they would make no difference on a cabriolet, not too sure that they would do any harm either though? I was told by the previous owner that he knew...

Re: Cabriolet 220 turbo

Not too sure about the chassis but engineers report on the car states: 'The conversion is of a very high standard and no corners have been cut, to all intents and purposes this vehicle is identical mechanically to a 196ps Rover 220 petrol turbo, as all 200 series cars 1992-1996 share the same chassi...

Re: Cabriolet 220 turbo

I was informed by the previous owner that he knew of another in Northampton and that Rover themselves produced 6 of these back in the day. I will post pictures as soon as I can.

Re: Cabriolet 220 turbo

Just collected it and driven it for 250 miles and it handles the power very well, in fact no problems at all. Its a very sensible car to drive around town but really comes to life at motorway speeds where it accelerates with no drama at all.

Cabriolet 220 turbo

Just bought a Rover which is a bit of a hybrid. Its a cabriolet with the engine from a tomcat turbo converted by Moto Build Racing. I believe that there are not too many around and I just wondered if there were any more owners of similar cabrios on here.
