Windy 02-24-2006 09:00 AM

Do you think all Chinese people will think it is "too old" or just the younger people?

Do you have a link (URL) for where the pictures came from? News article? No problem if it its in Chinese :)

jikki 02-24-2006 09:37 AM

A lot of the English think the same thing.

The Rover 25 is the young model and the MG ZR is the young sports model - they look very different inside.

This looks really really good. Something youd see here in the USA.

Windy 02-27-2006 04:09 PM

After some discussion over on, the conclusion is that this Rover car was made by MG-Rover in the UK and is being used by SAIC for testing of their engine/suspension developments.

The SAIC built Rover 75's will be 100mm longer than this one - half way to this Rover 75 Limo:

Yes and with China's backing you may soon be able to buy a new MG in the USA. The legend will return to America's shores again I'm sure!

The spyshot looks like the original 75

Windy 03-24-2006 04:33 PM

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

The new ones will look different.

AXLE 03-24-2006 10:02 PM

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.

Windy 03-27-2006 02:48 PM

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.

hazik 04-21-2006 05:31 PM

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.

hazik 04-21-2006 07:35 PM

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.

Windy 05-15-2006 01:38 PM

There has been no news on this since, I think, last September? Have you heard something new?

Brilliant Culture Group appear to be part of Petronas or at least funded entirely by them.

In January this year, Proton made a similar announcment about the E01.

dragin 05-15-2006 02:07 PM

No, you are right Windy. From a quick search I see no later reports about this agreement. It makes one wonder about Nanqi wanting to use an engine that has not yet seen volume production.....

Windy 05-15-2006 02:16 PM

Its a good engine. Its chief designer Osamu Goto worked for Honda and then the Ferrari Formula 1 team before designing the E01. If Nanqi are going to produce sports cars then they have good reason to be interested in it.

Its not well proven though which may explain why the press article talked about technology rather than the actual engine. Its probably also a bit expensive to produce which is why Proton never took it up.

Question: Does this have ANYTHING to do with roewe

thats my favorite luxury brand right there :')...:nod:

CCF mod 02-11-2008 01:35 PM

NAC MG7 is based on old Rover 75 as is Roewe.

tom_R75 03-12-2008 04:01 PM

Re: spyshot of China Rover75
MG7 is based on the R75, little newer, same tools from Longbridge, wellknown quality
Roewe 750 is something totally different, only looking similar, other tools used, quality still to proof (crashtest etc...)

Re: spyshot of China Rover75

tchayton 03-12-2008 08:00 PM
