Originally designed to be the centerpiece of MG Rover's future vehicle plans, this now-stillborn prototype named the RDX60 has been located in a dark, dusty corner within Longbridge. The five-seat hatch based on the Rover 75 platform was the replacement for the Rover 45 built to go head-to-head with the Golf and Focus in 2004. Unfortunately, delays and a general lack of funds sent it along with the future MG Rover into automotive oblivion in April of 2005.

      A little SD1-ish from that angle. V8, maybe.
      4 pot? Nope.

      This was clearly a company that wanted to die. That prototype, which looks nothing like the sketches, would have looked dated in 1975.

      The sketches look alright, but that prototype is a clear sign that Rover was on his way out...
