The Rover 75 Brexit in the place where it is happiest; yesterday

The Rover 75 Brexit in the place where it is happiest; yesterday

As Britain votes in the EU referendum, the Leave campaign has made a last ditch attempt to win over voters by promising to re-introduce the Rover 75.

Campaigners promise that the new Rover 75 Brexit will come with a number of special features including a handbrake that is jammed on, a gearbox that only goes in reverse and a special feature that allows the driver to blame the utter failure of their own life on external factors.

‘The Rover 75 perfectly symbolises our future outside the EU,’ explained Leave enthusiast Lee Venthusiaste. ‘The design harks back to a misty-eyed vision of a 1950s Britain that never existed and the car won’t work properly once all the German bits have been removed.’

The re-born Rover 75 will be available only in white.
