Little is known about the ROVER 10/12 hp. It is only slightly larger than the 8 hp, but much more expensive. The four-cylinder engine, designed as a monobloc, "doesn't fit into the landscape" - who would have developed it? Many open questions, even among experts there are hardly any answers.

The following two illustrations are taken from "The Autocar" 1905. They show the car body without bonnet, the differences to the picture in the ROVER advertisement are visible. The second image shows the left engine side.
