With the caveat that without having actually owned or driven one,  all I 
can say is what I've heard or read.

The 220 Turbo is a FWD 197 bhp, 2 litre coupe derived from the Rover 200 
Honda era model.

It, like all of the turbo-charged Rovers of that era, is considered to 
be somewhat over-powered for the capabilities of the chassis. It has 
been stated that the 1.8 VVC version (with only about 135 bhp) was a 
more balanced package.

The 200 coupe design is known to some as the "Tomcat", which was 
apparently its factory codename.

It's quite a pretty looking car, IMO. Consider

prove to be of interest.
