The Speed 14 was a car produced by Rover between 1934 and 1936. It is believed that 380 of them were built in this time.

The Speed 14 was built to be the successor of the Rover Speed Pilot, although there was only minimal changes to the specifications.

The Speed 14 was fitted with a 1578cc six cylinder engine. The engine had overhead camshafts and pushrods. It was mated to a four-speed gearbox via a single-plate clutch. The engine produced 54bhp and took the car to a top speed of 80mph (129kmh).

The chassis was 9ft 4in (between 1934 and 1935) and 9ft 7in (in 1936). The chassis had semi-elliptical leaf springs all round. The cars were fitted with Lockheed hydraulic brakes (between 1934 and 1935) and Girling rod-operated (in 1939).

The standard coachwork was very attractive with the 'streamline four-door coupe' with its sloping back.

The tourer bodied car cost £395 in 1934.
