Rover 2600, series 2

The new 2600, the 2600S model had the improvements for the 2300S plus  a lot of extras. A sliding sunroof with automatic wind deflector, central  locking, electric windows all around and the self-leveling rear suspension  were all standard on the “S” models. And with the 5 speed standard  gearbox with higher gear gave the car more economical figures, 26.3  mph/1.000 rpm. Automatic gearbox and air-conditioning were extra  options. . The engine was no longer equipped with a manual choke  mechanism, but had an automatic choke unit (FASD). The Rover Sd1 series 2 were announced in September 1982. All new cars  were built in Cowley. The main differences could be seen in the interiors  of the new cars. Four new colours, blue, green and light and dark brown  were available, although not on all models. The interiors were colour-keyed from the  instrument panel to the boot and carpets. New bumpers came on the car made from  polyester with chrome stripping on top. Below the bumper was a colour-keyed spoiler  with fog lights. The 2600S was supplied with steel wheels with covers, while the vanden  Plas was supplied with alloy wheels also used on the 3500.   The fascia was not changed much, apart from the addition of wood on the more expensive models. The instruments however were revised to give the car a more modern feel. The  2600S model was supplied with a digital clock, while the vanden Plas models had a trip  computer. But maybe one of the most important changes from the interior, specially to  traditional Rover buyers were the walnut trim panels fitted to the more expensive  models, 2600S and upwards. The S models had satin-finish wood door inserts.   Paint systems dramatically changed by 1982 and so the series 2 had more brilliant looking  metallic paint colours.
