Description

The Rover P5 3500, also known as the 3.5 Litre was a luxury saloon produced by Rover from September 1967 until June 1973. It was the final iteration of the P5 series, which was first introduced in 1958.

Launched at the 1967 British Motor Show it was powered by a Buick 3.5-litre V8 engine with some Rover changes making it stronger and more reliable. The 3.5-litre V8 gave the P5 3500 significantly improved performance over the 3-litre six-cylinder engine that was used in earlier P5 models. It came with a new suspension system, power-assisted steering, and a more luxurious interior. The car was also available with a number of optional extras, such as air conditioning and a sunroof. One year after its launch in 1968 it was voted “Car of the Year” by the British Motoring Press Guild

It was used as an official car by the British government, and was also used by a number of other world leaders, production of the P5 3500 ended in June 1973 when it was replaced by the Rover P6. This 1:76 scale model is as used by Harold Wildon and Margaret Thatcher. It comes on a plinth (can be removed), clear case and Oxford wrap.
