The Rover marque dates back to 1878, when the Rover Company started making bicycles. From 1904 right up to 2005, it was used for automobiles – first under the Rover Company and later, for many years, under state-owned company, British Leyland (BL).
The Rover SD, or “Special Division”, series of executive cars was produced by BL’s Rover Triumph and Austin Rover divisions between 1976 and 1986. In 1977, the SD1 model won the title of European Car of the Year. It was the final Rover car to be fitted with the Rover V8 engine.
In 1986, British Leyland was renamed the Rover Group. Two years later, the company was privatised through a sale to British Aerospace – and in 1994, the company was bought by BMW.
In 2000, the Land Rover division was sold to Ford, BMW retained the MINI division and the Rover and MG marques were continued under a new company, named the MG Rover Group.
The MG Rover Group was to become the last British-owned, mass producer of cars. It was liquidated in 2005, and most of its assets were sold to the Nanjing Automobile Group.
The Land Rover brand has survived and is now owned by Tata Motors.
