I have just added a Rover Coupe Turbo to the members car section (many thanks T1M).

I have also added a links page, if you think I have missed any then let me know.

I have collected a few brochures too. What I would love is the initial press pack though, haven't spotted one yet.

You appear to be missing the whole range of R8 200's and 400's from 1996 to 1999.

As in the:

200 Coupe 1.6 S
200 Coupe 1.6 SE
200 Coupe 1.8 VVC
200 Cabriolet 1.4 S
200 Cabriolet 1.4 SE
200 Cabriolet 1.6 S
200 Cabriolet 1.6 SE

Not sure of the 400 models.

1.6
1.8 VVC
Diesel

I believe there was a diesel.

Yup not intentionally though, need to gather all the information. I only have early 90's brochure at the moment, hence it isn't on the general information or line up at the mo. If you have any info I can put it then it would be more than welcome.

Do you know what year each spec was available in?

Also please do keep pointing out anything I may have got wrong.

200's were as above for 1996-1999.

All used the K series engine and had the MkIII dashboards.

I have a load of brochures that I could lend you Smithy - from 1989 through to 1999 which covers every incarnation of the R8.

Here are some that I scanned that feature the Coupe (apologies for poor quality scanning) - Click Here

Your 96 and 97-99 entries need a specific model name for the VVC as it was named as such. They way you have it shows it as the pauper model as apposed to the top of the range as it was.

There was no base model for the 1.8.

The base Model you have for the Coupe / Cabriolet should also be the S as that was as low as they went.

For the facelift models it was in the case of the Coupe an S, SE or VVC.
