MetroInfo

Information about many Austin and Rover Metros, originally posted online many years ago on sites no longer available on the web but preserved here in a refreshed format.

Rover Metro GTa

The GTa was launched in 1990 with the new Metro range. It continued on the success of the Mk2 Austin Metro GTa.

Metro to 100

In 1994 Rover took the decision to revamp the Metro, renaming it to Rover 100 in the process.

Rover Metro Cabriolet

Manufactured and launched in 1991. This is the most special and most rare of any model in the entire eighteen years of the Metro. Rover encountered many technical difficulties, i.e. ensuring the hood was waterproof from all angles, and it didn't jam. The high spec and all the extra work was putting the price up and up. It was going to sell around £12,000. In the end very few were ever made.
