CORGI VANGUARD VA06518 O SCALE Rover P6 3.5 V8 VIP Platinum

Towards the end of P6 production, Rover's thrifty Solihull managers realised they had both air-conditioning and electric-window kits left over from their unsuccessful attempt to sell P6 V8s in America. To use these components up, a run of 100 or more UK market VIPs was planned although only 77 were produced; 47 in Platinum and 30 in Brasilia. The VIP modelled here was first registered on 13th May 1976 and is one of only four known surviving Platinum VIPs. Now owned by P6 Rover Owners Club official, Deborah Squires, from Huddersfield who bought it in March 2012, it has survived long term storage in good condition and is now undergoing sympathetic restoration to concours standard.
