The Rover 200 BRM was unveiled at the 1997 Frankfurt Motor Show, and went on sale from October 1998. It paid homage to Rover's links with British Racing Motors, the Formula One team of the 1950s to the 1970s, and was based on the range‑topping Vi model with the 143bhp 1.8‑litre VVC K‑Series engine. Among the limited edition touches were red quilted leather seats and door panels, red carpet, seat belts and steering wheel, along with alloy heater controls and turned aluminium trim elsewhere. Brooklands Green paint was used for the exterior, with silver trim details, 16in alloys, and a woven mesh grille above a BRM trademark large orange snout. The price was £18,000, with only 795 built for the UK, plus an additional 350 for overseas markets.

This car's first owner had it from 1999 to 2000, with its second custodian holding onto it from 2000 through to early 2021. The vendor acquired it at the start of 2021, and reports that in excess of £1600 was spent in April, replacing the head gasket (with a multi‑layer item), timing belt and water pump, with fresh brake pads and calipers also fitted all around.

The paperwork includes the current V5 (and a copy of an old one), invoice for the work carried out in April, and a current MoT certificate valid to April 2022. There's also a spare set of keys with remote control, and the locking wheelnut key. The indicated odometer reading is 30,400 miles, which appears to be backed up by the available online MoT history  ‑ in 2006, the mileage was 16,952.
