Rover was founded in Coventry in 1878 and actually began life building bicycles before moving into car production in 1904. Rover’s first car, the Rover 8, was manufactured until 1912. Ownership of the iconic British manufacturer is now split between BMW (Germany), SAIC (China) and Tata Motors (India).
Over the years, Rover cars have ranged from practical run-arounds to sports vehicles and even limousines. Even though the company name has been passed around for years, Rover motors remain relatively commonplace on U.K. roads.
