The Rover 620ti, a quintessentially British sports saloon, has always held a special place in the hearts of automotive enthusiasts. Known for its turbocharged power and distinctive style, the Rover 620ti combines the elegance of a classic sedan with the performance of a sports car. As a nod to this remarkable vehicle and its enduring legacy, we are thrilled to unveil our latest innovation: a custom hose kit designed specifically for the Rover 620ti, crafted in an exciting collaboration with Mike Fernie and Drivetribe, and fitted at the world-famous restoration workshop owned by Richard Hammond, The Smallest Cog.

This new custom hose kit is not just a part replacement; it’s a significant upgrade on the crumbling rubber hoses of Reggie the Rover. The hoses enhance the 620ti’s performance, reliability, and under-the-bonnet aesthetics. Developed with precision engineering and high-quality materials, our hose kit ensures that the Rover not only runs more efficiently but also stands out in any gathering of car enthusiasts.

The collaboration for this project was showcased on Drivetribe, a platform celebrated for its deep dive into automotive culture, highlighted in the below video. This particular episode is made even more special with the appearance of Izzy Hammond, the daughter of UK automotive legend, Richard Hammond, who takes on the task of fitting the new hoses to the Rover. Her involvement reflects the community spirit that Drivetribe fosters which Samco Sport at thrilled to be a part of.

This means fewer hose failures and more reliable engine performance, crucial for a turbocharged vehicle like the 620ti.
  1. Aesthetic Appeal: We understand that the visual aspect of vehicle modification is just as important as its functional benefits. Our custom hose kit is available in various colours to match or contrast with your car’s engine bay, giving your Rover 620ti a more personalized and refined look.
