1999 Fiat Coupe Turbo 2.0 turbo 20v from UK and Ireland
Superb design and performance
Does not like the cold weather as this makes the handbrake stick - leave it in gear and it is no problem.
Burns a little oil, maybe 1 litre per 3,000 miles, keep an eye on the pressure guage and it is no problem.
Grin inducingly blindingly fast, nothing short of a 911 or Impreza WRX will stick with it.
Surprisingly sensible, loads of room in the boot and rear seats (much better than a GTV), loads of space for the baby seat.
I would buy another tomorrow, the running cost is more than offset by the bargain purchase price.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Ah yes, but the GTV will go around corners as well!
Seriously, though, I look at the boot & rear seats in my GTV and then look at my mate's Coupe, and I know which one I'd rather be a passenger in or take on a fully loaded road trip.
Then I decide that, actually, I'd be driving, so forget the passengers, I'll take the GTV!
