Post Great value V8 and V12 coupes
on: October 12, 2013, 15:01

So, you're wanting a nice big executive coupe. Something a bit sporty?
I've put together a list of the nice coupes you could get for not a great deal of money - in relation to the original purchase price.

Now everyone has different ideas of money they can spend on a car - and the up keep of said motor.

Obviously a V12 coupe is going to be pretty pricey to run. Both in terms of Insurance, tyres, maintenance and parts, etc. But hopefully you could keep it as a weekend car for something that doesn't do many miles. Maybe it's an investment, in 30 years - it could well be a classic car worth 10 times as much. There could be any number of reasons you want a car like this.

So, up to £5000...

Jaguar XKR or XK8 - It was released in the late 90's as a grand tourer with an AJ-V8 - 4.0L in size which propelled it to a limited 155mph.<a href="é_002_8278.jpg"><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-493" alt="1998_Jaguar_XKR_coupé" src="é_002_8278.jpg" width="2048" height="1536" /></a>

Maybe you don't like the shape of the headlights of the XK series coupes. Maybe a Mercedes is something more to your taste. There are a few Mercs you can get too for the price of £5K!

The merc 500 SL is a appreciating classic now and these do have style. Personally I think they use to look dated but now they are a lot more stylish.

If you didn't want the convertible then you could go for a newer CL500 or cl600. The 600 might go a little over the £5K budget! However they have many, many toys!

<a href=""><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-496" alt="mercedes_CL500" src="" width="625" height="370" /></a>Here are just 3 coupes you could get. There are more and that will be up next week.

Thank you for reading and do come back.
