To consume with moderation.
BRM, one of the great names in the world of formula 1, remains haloed innumerable victories and titles of champions of the world obtained by Graham Hill and Jackie Stewart. However, here its come-back on the road with Rover 200 BRM Limited Edition.
Based on Rover 200vi, the BRM is presented with a modified interior, a frame of race and especially regulated bodies of propulsion.
Its appearance already is extremely eloquent. «The orange»muzzle and the grill testify without possible confusion that it is a not very common specimen. The red presence of leather and aluminium polished in the cockpit point out the presence of BRM in competition.
But the event jubilatoire with this BRM remains indeed the moment when you take the wheel. The famous Rover engine of 1,8 liter VVC displays its technical skill then and guarantees a sovereign progression.
The variable ordering of the valves and the gear box to short staging take part in addition largely in the remarkable performances.
It goes without saying the frame also is somewhat different. Because of the springs and shock absorbers firmer, the car is flattened, from where a behaviour in turn very marked.
As the brakes were also modified, it follows a feeling on the extremely precise and rather rare pedal.
Here consequently an office plurality of tangible improvements which tally without question with the ambitious design.
Let us tell it any Net: this car is made for the adults. BRM is indeed a name from time immemorial representative of people who dedicate to the car well more that their simple pleasure of leading.
