Why is it called an R8
Hiya i had an H reg 214 for a number ofyears and found it excellent reliable transport, except when the head gasket failed, but they all do that. LOL.
Anyway all i am asking is why do you call these motors R8's When the bubble shape Rover 200 came along i always thought they were called Rover 200 (89 to 95) similar with the Saloon model Rover 400 (89 to 95).
Just curious thats all, as for a start i thought R8 stood for the Rover 800 model (bloody ugly arent they eh LOL)
Now i see the addition of the description "Wedge shape" in comparison with the "Bubble Shape" it all makes sense well done.
