For a V8 nearly convertible initially favorable price ...

On it reflects the fatal beginning of British Leyland, 1968 still called British Motor Corporation. It is originally designed by Michelotti, the house stylist, based on the two-liter sedan, but even without this unusual three-arm targa bar and with a continuous grill and thereby recessed spotlights.

Its engine plays a role in the interaction between the companies Triumph and Saab but the latter wait in vain for it to install into one of their vehicles. Thereby is not so bad the basic idea of a summary of two four-cylinder inline engines to a V8.

Why British Leyland needs two V8 engines?

The engine is indeed late, but still finished. The Stag receives it, although already indicated with the above fusion of the British car industry meanwhile, a V8 would be available, originally mounted by Buick (GM) in the Rover. One provides its own V8 drilled out to 3 liters.

The engine is then later one reason for the bad performance of this car on the market, particularly for the export share, which amounts to only 30 percent. It annoys by lot of deficiencies in cooling and engine management that there are in the last, still remaining vehicles such converted almost exclusively on Rover V8.

Well is poor reliability of new models not uncommon among car manufacturers in those years, but must be better then at least the model care, what is not just a flag in the time of the complete merger of the British car industry.

Successful cars tend to be cheaper ...

There even strong individual fighters, such as e.g. Sir William Lyons, from the company Jaguar lost interest. No one is responsible or theresponsibility changes frequently. Instead of eliminating the faults, there are even measures the increase even (keyword: smaller cooler) themisery and the formerly low price shoots up.

In 1973 the export stops in the United States, 1977, production is stopped completely. 11/11               Top of page               Index
