Our beloved Rover V8 was the Engine of the Day for Sunday March 29th, 2009, on Jalopnik. Enjoy.

If you’re looking for an engine with way more than its share of weird plot twists in its story, you’ve come to the right place!
This aluminum V8 started life as a Buick in 1961, was shared with Pontiac and Oldsmobile (where it benefited from Turbo Rocket Fluid), then crossed the Atlantic and was installed in the MGB-GT V8, the Triumph TR8, and countless Land Rovers.
