just found this on ElectronicBAY.
Quite an interesting idea i thought.
Unfortunately the 260 was a standard ZT with the ford engine. I think from memory that this engine can be supercharged to 400bhp?
You could try sticking one in your ZR, that'll be an interesting mod.
It would probably give Charles Kennedy a run for his moneyI'm having one as my next rover!!!! Yes I'd have the auto rover one hehe would have to have a gas conversion though - bet it drinks like my mother !
Haha I so want one - style, class and a stonking engine with a nice auto. huum one day. Only thing that would beat it I think would be same set up but coupeIt would probably give Charles Kennedy a run for his money
Noo I haveney got a drink problem, there is plenty of booze in Scotland
That's the first I've heard of it. As far as I was aware the rear-drive conversion was designed and engineered in Longbridge and the cars all went down the standard production line with the fwd models.It was hardly standard mate it went off to California to be converted to RWD, it had a Getrag gearbox and possibly different suspension because of the extra weight.
