Tuesday 6th October 1992
A striking new dimension was added to the Rover range with the launch at the Paris Motor Show of the two-door Rover 200 Coupe. Given the project code name ‘Tomcat’ when in development, it was based on the Rover 200 Mark II, with most of the body panels and the bumpers unique in the range. When introduced, the range flagship – the 220 Turbo Coupé – was the most powerful and fastest production Rover model ever built. The range was revised in 1996, with new engines, and was renamed Rover Coupé. Production ceased in 1998.
