Rover 800

This Rover 825 SD L was built in 1996 and belongs to Stéphan G. Watrin. He's aeronautical technician at Airbus where they have built all those supersonic Concorde aeroplanes.

Stéphan about his car:
It had very few kilometers - 40500. Concerning the extras on this car I've just put some DIY :
- gear knob with Rover logo on top and pit stop handle are wooden handmade
- armrest, gear lever and pit stop lever are leather covered with handmade sewing
- I also painted rear lights frame in grey in accordance with the colour of the car (they were black)
Now, I've reached 105000 Km with it and I haven't had any trouble.
I'm fifty years old and I live in the southwest of France and more precisely in Beauzelle which is a little town beside Toulouse. I'm aeronautical technician at Airbus. I'm fond of nice cars and specially of English cars (Rolls, Jaguar, Bentley and of course Rover).
