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.
