This is one of the finest cars that we have had the pleasure of dealing with. Professionally restored by a marque expert with exquisite attention to correctness and detail. The Cyclops must be the nearest thing to a car that rolled out of the Rover gates in 1950 and is a true delight in every respect. Offered at a fraction of the price of the restoration work, the P4 represents outstanding value for money and is a unique opportunity.
