The limited edition Rover 200 BRM was first shown at the 1997 Frankfurt Motor Show and, thanks to favourable press and public reaction, launched at the British Motor Show in October 1998. It took the range‑topping Vi model as its main basis, but added references to the racing cars of Formula 1 team British Racing Motors, a constructor with which Rover had been associated during the 1960s. These included red quilted leather seats and door panels, red carpets, seatbelts and steering wheel, alloy heater controls and turned aluminium trim. The only paint available was Brooklands Green, with silver trim details, 16in alloys, and an exclusive woven mesh grille sat above a large orange snout, which was the BRM trademark nose on its 1960s' F1 racing cars.

The engine was a 143bhp 1.8-litre VVC K-Series. Other technical features included a 20mm lower ride height and a close-ratio gearbox with a TorSen differential. The price was £18,000 which included air conditioning, passenger airbag and a CD player. Only 795 were built for the UK, with an additional 350 for overseas markets.

The vendor acquired this example, registered in September 1999, during June 2016, becoming the car's sixth owner. However, for the past three years, it has been stored in a garage. It was removed in May 2022 and passed its MoT after an expenditure of around £1100, most of which was for brake discs and pads. The vendor tells us that the car 'drives well and is in wonderful condition for a 23-year-old car' (although some corrosion and bubbling is evident towards the rear of the sills and on the nearside rear wheel arch). The car is now on 18in BK Racing alloy wheels.

The paperwork folder includes the V5C showing five previous registered keepers. There's also some previous maintenance bills as well as invoices for the recent work, along with past MoT certificates. The current MoT is valid until May 2023 and the odometer shows 57,491 miles. The owner's handbook comes with the car along with the radio information guides. There's also some general information on the BRM model.
