1952-1962 ROVER P4 60/80 specifications


In 1953, the appeal of the P4 was widened considerably by the arrival of the four-cylinder model. The 2-litre engine was also used in the Land Rover, and after the smoothness of the straight-six proved something of a disappointment. However, it wasn’t much slower than the standard car, and proved slightly more economical. The 60bhp engine remained in the P4 until 1959, when it made way for the more powerful 2.2-litre 80bhp engine – reason enough to re-designate the car the P4 80 in its final three seasons.
