Rover introduced a more powerful six cylinder model to its P4 range in 1953, the Rover 90. The 90 used a larger 2639cc version of the overhead inlet/side exhaust valve engine that was used in the 75 model. The 90 engine produced approximately 90bhp and had a top speed of 90mph.
As with the other P4 variants the 90 was well built and had an opulent interior trimmed in traditional materials. The 90 remained in production until 1959 and received the same facelift revisions as the other P4 models.
