…It’s Tuner Tuesday: 27-Litre Rover SD1?


Working for a magazine called Practical Performance Car, you would think that the staff would drive cars that perform in a practical way. Not so with Al Rush’s monster. He decided that his Rover would be happiest with a 27 liter V12 Rolls Royce Meteor engine filling up the front. The Meteor engine, famous for powering Spitfires and tanks, puts out 650 horsepower at only 2,500rpm, so I can only imagine what kind of wild ride the Rover must be. There’s plenty of custom bits and pieces that go along with the terrorizing transplant, but the end result should be a somewhat stock looking rocket that tears up the roadways with power to burn. No replacement for displacement has met its match.
