Lot 48
1982 Rover SD1 'Bastos' Replica

Sold for £ 3,680 (US$ 4,446) inc. premium
1982 Rover SD1 'Bastos' Replica
The tuning potential of its big V8 engine, particularly the fuel-injected Vitesse, made it inevitable that the SD1 would be raced, the works cars prepared by Tom Walkinshaw Racing at Kidlington near Oxford being amongst the most competitive racing saloons of the 1980s. Rovers won their class in the British Touring Car Championship in 1981 and 1982, and took outright victory in the 1983 RAC Tourist Trophy race.
This car is a working replica - manufactured contemporarily with the Touring Car programme and complete with standard Vitesse engine and drivetrain - of the Rover SD1 Bastos-sponsored racer driven by Tom Walkinshaw and Win Percy. The car lacks windows and is shod with racing tyres.
