Rover 220 Turbo Coupe (R8)

Cars

Tahiti blue Rover 220 Coupe Turbo
Manufactured 1995 N
UK registered 1998
Purchased January 2000
Written-off November 2002

The car was one of a consignment shipped to Japan but returned due to a flood onboard ship. Rover mothballed the Coupes until the end of the Coupe model range then registered them all. Mine had 8000 miles on the clock when I got it and only 16500 when it went. Cry

Kept completely standard except for a stainless steel Scorpion exhaust.

Purchased January 2000. Sadly 'written-off' by 'White Van Man' in November 2002. Mad

Christian Jull

During his 'car years', Christian owned, ran and modified a Nissan 200SX (S14) and Nissan Silvia Spec R (S15). He was an active staff member of the UK 200SX Owners Club and one of the founding members of the S15 Owners Club. He owned and administered the club for ten years. Over the course of five years of Nissan ownership, Christian wrote modification guides to aid others. These guides have proved very popular with 200SX/Silvia owners all over the world.

Included with the guides is a record of car ownership over a ten year period.

Christian is now car-less and lives in the public-transport-friendly city of Helsinki in Finland.
