History of the Rover 2000TC P6


The Classic Rover 2000 (Type P6) saloon debuted in 1963, garnering critical praise as well as the 'Car of the Year' title. It was manufactured in Solihull, West Midlands, England, from 1963 until 1977. The P6 was the sixth and last Rover design with the letter "P" to enter production. The vehicle was first marketed as the Rover 2000 and had a full "clean sheet" design designed to appeal to a wider range of purchasers than previous models such as the P4 it replaced. Until 1973, the P5 was available alongside the P6.

The Rover P6's construction innovations, partly inspired by the Citroën DS, including a stressed skeletal base unit to which outer body panels and suspension components were joined; the bell-cranked front suspension was used to produce a large engine compartment; and De Dion rear suspension. The de Dion setup in the Rover 2000TC was distinctive in that the "tube" was in 2 components that could telescope but not rotate, avoiding necessity sliding splines in the drive shafts, which would result in stiction under drive or braking torque, while still maintaining the wheels vertical and parallel to the body.

The P6 has four-wheel disc brakes (rear inboard) and a completely synchromesh gearbox. Rover's twin-carburettor 2000TC variant, introduced in 1966, offered a maximum power output of 110bhp (up from 89bhp), improving peak speed from 104 to 108mph. The Rover P6 was initially shipped with 165 R14 PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CA67 tyres, which PIRELLI has finally grateful replicated after a lengthy time of being unavailable.
