Just 500 examples of the 200 BRM will be built next year to link the hatchback's high-output vi power unit with the first gas-turbine racing car which ran at Le Mans in 1963. Looking squat on lowered suspension, the dark green model sits on 16-inch alloy wheels and has a retuned chassis to sharpen steering response. Revised gearing puts the accent on sports progress and machined aluminium is used for interior detailing.
Though the 425 is also fast - it reaches more than 140mph - the performance is more allied with luxury. Under this car's bonnet lies the Rover 800 Series KV6 engine and electronic, four-speed automatic transmission.
