Website of the Classic Rover P5 (3 Litre) and P5B (3.5 Litre)

The Classic Rover P5 (3 Litre) and P5B (3.5 Litre), launched in 1958 and manufactured until 1973 by the Rover Company of Solihull, England, has been variously described as “the zenith of British car making”, “One of Britain’s Fine Cars” and “a gentle giant”.  The P5B with it’s Buick-designed Rover V8 engine (much modified by Rover and manufactured until 2003) has also been called a skinhead in a Bowler Hat and a hairy-chested lothario(!).

Owned by the Queen and used by British Prime Ministers, senior Military personnel, numerous Embassies and leading businesspeople, the Rover P5 and P5B were wonderfully capable cars that provided discreet, elegant and comfortable service. Produced in both 4-door Saloon and Coupe bodies with beautiful styling by Rover’s David Bache, the Rover P5 and P5B are widely loved yet under-appreciated and under-valued.
