2006 Rover 75 V8 Connoisseur


  • Low Mileage
  • Low Owners
  • Good condition all round 

The Appeal

One of the last models Rover built before bankruptcy, this 75 V8 is a subtly handsome car with a luxurious interior and a smooth ride. The 4.6 litre V8 engine, lifted out of a Mustang, adds to the intrigue and driving experience. 
Approximately 150 of the V8s carried the Rover badge, having been dressed up as the MG ZT. This example has been well cared for during its time and even had an LPG system fitted, which has now been removed. Its condition is telling as the exterior and interior have very little wear and tear. 
Recently won through our auctions, it’s now back with only a few hundred more miles and having had the LPG system removed. So if you missed it the first time round, now’s your chance.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.

Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


Car & Classic prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.

Auctions are extended by 3 minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £9,999 £100.00
£10,000 to £49,999 £250.00
£50,000 to £99,999 £500.00
£100,000 + £1,000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.

You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you\'re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
