Any Alfa V6?
Big, leather lined 166?
Or 80's ugly 75?
Jaguar XJR, latest shape aluminium bodyshell models (2004 on) can now be had for that sort of money, 4.2 V8 supercharged and absolutely fantastic to drive, can be driven about round town like a granny or like a getaway car, a cracking long distance mile eater with everything as standard. My mate had the old shape one and we got to Italy a lot quicker than we should have done and still averaged around 20mpg.
Nick, is that the DeLorean that was in Machynlleth?
lovin the DMC!
56 minutes to go
its a boxxer engine
its for the 80's
£14K gets you a damn good 911. 1987-1989 3.2 version. Air-cooled so always going to be cool. Perfect for daily driver, occasional track day trips, and if you push it - regular trips sideways into the scenery.
here you go
Also available in (proper) Guards Red for that true 80s look.
dunno Captain, just googled it and found a couple for sale
that porche costs £4K to insure! its £5K before i even get to a company ive ever heard of!
The car I'm looking at had litteraly, horsepower, when it first came out
Alfa SZs aren't that bad to maintain, with most of the important oily bits are from the Alfa 75. Yes they themselves are more expensive than, say, the Ford/BMW equivalent, but they're not *that* bad.
The real headaches begin with the bespoke-for-SZ parts i.e. bodywork, headlamps, WINDSCREENS etc, which are as rare as rocking horse poo, and massively (£1K+ for a windscreen) when they do appear.
For a real test of your petrolheadedness/manliness, I'd suggest Maserati 3200GT, which are available for £14K with change. Just be prepared for the running costs, which are greater than the V8 Ferraris.
thisisnotaspoon - you're just far too young then
that masserati is making me cry, its just so pretttttttttttttttttyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy
Sod of a car dealer let me have one of these for an afternoon a couple of weeks back, I can't get it out of my head. Rev counter hits 3600 and a hell breaks loose with a great V8 wail, all driven thru just the rear tyres with a decent flippy floppy paddle gear change too.
OOh lexus, i saw one of them the other day, thats the one with the odd exhausts isn;t it. Looked very sineous !
For under £14k?
Caterham, 1700cc crossflow
