If I remember well this car had a real radical design and very particular square front lights.
That kind of design at that time was new and original.
To hava an idea, it looked a bit like a big Fiat X 1 - 9, wich was of course a little sports car, but very brilliant .
I saw some articles on P6BS collected in a book, and in my opinion it was extremely interesting.
A real pity they did not produce it.
You remenber the Rover bible, there is a chapter called, if i remembre well, " Rovers that might have been".
It was difficult at that time to attempt at E - type primate, see for example tne beautiful but unsuccessful Jensen Interceptor, which is nowadays quite rare.
Best regards, Gianluca.

And if it had gone into production (restyled by the brilliant David Bache),it was to be called the P9.Either Autocar or Motor(sorry, can't remember which)did a full road test and were very impressed.Cheers,David Walker.
