'Rover P6 (known here as the Rover 2000)'

That's not entirely accurate. P6 was an internal designation; the cars were always badged according to their engine size: 2000, 2200 or 3500.

Hi Charles:

You are correct sir!

Actually, we are both correct - it WAS marketed here as a Rover 2000 (and later the Rover 3500 TC - not sure if we ever got the 2200 version) but it was also marketed elsewhere under those designations.

Thanks for the clarification.

Collectively, however, the 'P6' designation seems to be how historians refer to that car. By any name it was an outstanding vehicle for its time.
