On the day that Britain's latest family car, Austin Rover's Montego, comes on to the market, Top Gear goes behind the scenes for an exclusive look at the company's new multi-million-pound design centre at Canley, Coventry.
While Frank Page and Sue Baker road test the full range of Montegos, William Woollard reports on the years of creative effort and refinement that lie behind the car. A fascinating blend of the traditional, with full-scale craftsmen-built models and the latest in computer-aided design techniques which will shape cars of the future.
Once you've bought your new pride and joy you may need a workshop manual to look after it. FRANK PAGE examines the painstaking way in which they are compiled.
