My Fellow Oppos...School Me on the Sterling 827

Whilst browsing the interwebs today, one of my favorite car groups on Facebook, Obscure Cars For Sale, produced an ad for a quite obscure car, indeed.

The car in question is a 1989 Sterling 827 SL, located in Portland, Oregon. My interest was immediately peaked as it seems to be in great condition with the only modifications made being a period-correct bonkers wing (I can deal with that) and an updated radio (I can also deal with that), and it was only just around $2000.

The problem, besides it being located literally across the country, is that I know next to nothing about Sterlings, except that it was a joint venture between Rover and Honda that even brought them over in the first place. If I remember correctly, they were powered by Honda C-Series V6s and shared some equipment with the original Acura Legend, but that’s as far as my knowledge goes.


Does anyone here know anything about these unique British/Japanese creations? I’m really interested in it as I believe it would make a great conversation piece at meets like Radwood, and would just be an all-around fun car to have.
