Rover's reputation was far too heavily tarnished for it ever to return. It started with the appalling build quality and reliability of the SD1, followed by the underdeveloped 800, a line of fairly obvious Honda rebadges, BMW's failure to invest or make a success of the company, and finally, by MG Rover's bankruptcy and collapse in 2005. The brand values it once epitomised might be eminently saleable, but the Rover name itself would be the kiss of death, certainly in the UK.
