Thats because it is an original 75, except for the engine.

The new ones will look different.

What kind of engine does it have? a Mitsubishi unit? What happened to the 2.5 litre V6?

Saic: and the New Rover 75 with Antonov Automatic Transmission
SAIC is working on two new automatic transmissin systems from the Antonov company.

The AAD (made by GWM) for the smaller New Rover cars and the DCA for (we think) the The New Rover 75.

I thought the GWM Antonov transmissions where to be sold to Nanjing for their version of the Rover 25 and that SAIC where working with Antonov seperately. I may be wrong though.

Will GWM be selling to both SAIC and Nanjing?

Antonov website for anyone interested:

this is how the car looks like without the tape, what kind of engine does it use?

Windy 04-21-2006 04:22 PM

Nanjing own the Powertrain K Series V6 engines. The car on the right should have this engine. When built at MG Rover UK they where 190bhp and front wheel drive on the Rover 75, I expect the Nanjing cars will use this engine.

That car has the front grill for a Rover 75 V8 so should be fitted with the 4.6litre Ford Mustang engine with 260Ps and have rear wheel drive.

The car with the tape is a SAIC car. I don't know what engine they have.

I thought SAIC bought the rights to the rover 75 engines as well? If they use ford mustand engines, will they get complaints from ford?

Windy 04-21-2006 06:49 PM

MG-Rover used to buy the Ford V8 engines from Ford so maybe Nanjing or SAIC can do the same?

SAIC apparently bought rights to build some of the Rover engines so they could build them but have they got a factory / production equipment to do so? I don't know the answer.

or they could buy engines from nanjing auto.

Nanqi's engines
Malaysia’s Petronas and Nanjing will together evaluate and develop engines in the 1.8- to 2.2-litre range for the Chinese car maker's (MG Rover) vehicle platforms, Petronas said. The firms will use the E01 technology developed by Petronas, which results in a compact engine that can be fitted into different vehicle platforms…..

Nanjing and Brilliant Culture Group, (a Chinese??) marketing and government relations consulting firm, will jointly invest in manufacturing facilities for the engine.
