The Rover 75 is a fancy car made by British car companies called Rover Group and later MG Rover, and it is sold under the name Rover. The Rover 75 could be bought as either a sedan or a station wagon. It had front-wheel drive, but later there was an option for a bigger version with rear-wheel drive and a V8 engine. In 2001, a car called the MG ZT was released by MG Rover. The Rover Group made Rover 75s at Cowley, Oxfordshire, for only one year. After BMW no longer owned Rover, the new MG Rover Group made the 75 car at their Longbridge factory in Birmingham. The Rover 75 was shown to the public for the first time at the 1998 Birmingham Motor Show. People could start buying and receiving their Rover 75 cars in February 1999. The Rover and MG car production stopped on April 8, 2005 because the MG Rover Group went into administration.
