Rover with a capital R is a prestigeous make of car in the UK going back to the 1920's and still manufacturing fine cars today. Formaly owned by British Leyland, Honda and BMW they are now independant after a management buy-out. Rover of course gave Land Rover and Range Rover to the world many years ago which are still the benchmark off-roaders.
HRH Queen Elizabeth II has always favoured Rover cars for her own private use.

That white oversized beach-balloon thing off of the cult 1960s psychological British spy TV-show "The Prisoner" (the one with Patrick McGoohan). Rover acts as the disciplinary force in a disguised detention centre for spies ("the village"). Upon finding an escapee, rover pounces on them and knocks them out, then carries/drags them back.
Patrick McGoohan almost escaped in the first episode of "The Prisoner", but then Rover caught him and foiled his escape :/

A now defunct British Car maker. Once part of the mighty British Leyland Automotive Corporation, responsible for some of the best British Cars ever made:

The Rover 75, Rover 600, SD1, P4, P5, P6.

And some of the Worst:

CityRover, 'Streetwise.'

Once quoted as "The British equivilent of BMW" in 1994 buy non other than the then Chairman of BMW himself: Bernd Pischetsrieder.

A Car Company ultimately undeserving of its tragic demise, but aided by imcompetent, greedy management: Kevin Howe, the 'Phoenix Four', BMW.

A historic British former car maker. Founded in 1904, went into liquidation in 2005. Made a great V8 engine and a great car called the Rover 75. Were going to make the Rover 75 Coupé which is well smart.
Rover 75. The most beautiful car on the road, apart from the Aston Martin DB9!

1) American slang for Range Rover.
2) A defunct British marque, once produced by British Leyland alongside Land Rover, Jaguar, Mini, Austin, MG, and a bunch of other long dead brands. They were traditionally seen as old man's cars although the SD1, launched in 1976, was a symbol of eighties British cool. Surviving SD1s are impossible to find but they are super cool.
John: You had a Rover right? Rover Sport or the HSE?
Henry: I do have a Range Rover, but the Rover in question is an SD1.

1. Until recently, the last mass market British car manufacturer.

2. British military abreviation for the Truck Utility Light (TUL), a militiarised version of the civilian Land Rover Defender and its predecessors.
1. Its a shame that Rover have gone out of business, even though they haven't made a decent car for years.

2. The ration packs are in the back of the 'rover.

The rover was very excited for the camping trip with all of the little boy scouts.
