Subsequently, GM returned to iron-block motors and sold the 215 V8 to
England's Rover. There it found a home in the 1968 Rover 3500 (P6), a
derivative of the innovative Rover 2000, both of which were exported to
Additionally, the engine was used in the Morgan Plus 8, the Triumph TR8, the
Rover SD-1, the MGB-GT V8, TVR, Land Rover Discovery and the Range Rover,
where it soldiered on in 3.9, 4.0, 4.2 and 4.6-litre versions.
The engine formed the basis for Jack Brabham's Formula 1 world championship
Brabham Repco V8 in 1966.
