Rover mounted its biggest ever challenge on the World Rally Championships in 1985 with the debut of the Metro 6R4 at the Lombard RAC Rally.
Following a multi-million pound development programme, the Patrick Head-designed 410 BHP rear-engined V6, capable of 0 - 100 in 4 seconds, carried Rover's hopes of real success.
With top drivers such as Tony Pond, David Llewellyn and Colin McRae at the wheel, the raucous roar of the 4WD 6R4 became a familiar sound at some of the most gruelling of rallies. At the end of 1986 after only two seasons these supercars were banned from international rallying but continued to show their mettle in rallycross.
