New R8 Rover 200 book to be published in April 2021

#1 Post by GTiJohn » Tue Nov 17, 2020 9:55 am

Renowned motoring writer James Taylor has now added the R8 Rover 200 to his list of models covered with a new book to be published in April 2021 but available to pre-order now.

https://www.amberley-books.com/discover ... er-r8.html

From the Amberley page:
This comprehensive and readable book covers the Rover models built on the R8 platform, including the Rover 200 and 400. The book begins with the transitional period after the demise of BL and the advent of first Austin Rover and then Rover as well as the early collaboration with Honda to develop a new series of cars. The author also examines the development of the successful K Series engine as well as the collaboration with Peugeot to develop diesel engines from 1992.

A bit late for Easter but not as fattening as an Easter egg! It’s on order.

Really looking forward to this book. I really enjoyed reading the R3 booklet over Christmas.
