7. Rover P5B V8 Coupe
Rover, like Jaguar, was always known for its formal sedans and premium four-door cars. In fact, they were the favorite transportation of the British upper middle class. In those days, Rovers were restrained cars for comfortable cruising with no performance pretensions. However, in 1967, Rover introduced the P5B with a 3.5-liter V8 engine.
In contrast to its stately appearance, the P5B Coupe was a luxury muscle car. Under the hood was a 3.5-liter V8 engine with 165 HP that could propel this heavy sedan to 60 mph in 9.6 seconds. Interestingly, they called the four-door version with a slightly lower roofline a coupe, as well.
The interior was an elegant mix of finest wood and leather, making the driver feel comfortable while speeding on Britain’s motorways. Performance car fans loved the Rover P5B. And it was so respected in the UK car community, even Queen Elizabeth owned one.
