Three Metropolitan Police traffic Rover SD1s in front with the dual blue roof spinners

 


 

 

Above: The Rover SD1 V8 was one of the fastest and best-handling cars of its day and made a superb high-speed police vehicle. This one is in its original, unrestored condition, as it finished service in the late 1980s and is believed to be the only surviving Traffic car of its type still owned by the Met. It was one of the very first cars to carry roof markings for identification from the air. This car was supplied to the Metropolitan Police by British Leyland on 4th March1983 and delivered to the motor repair depot at Northolt, where it was fully prepared with all the equipment and markings for use as on Traffic Patrol duties based at Hampton Traffic Garage.
