Top 10: £2000 coupes
Just because your budget is tight doesn’t mean your next classic car should in any way lack style. This is where the classic coupe market is particularly interesting, featuring as it does an impressive array of makes, models and asking prices; even if you’ve no more than £2000 to spend, it’s still possible to get behind the wheel of a handsome machine.
The 1980s and ’90s saw some particularly interesting – and downright gorgeous – coupes launched, many of which can be snapped up now for relatively little cash. And even the ’70s still offers us a few cut-price gems. So the big question is: which one will you choose?

With a production run that lasted from 1995 to 2005, the front-wheel drive Alfa Romeo GTV caters for most budgets nowadays, with early high-mileage cars available for £1000 or less. Double that amount, however, and you should find a well maintained GTV in good order, with a choice of 2.0-litre Twin Spark or 3.0 V6 powerplants.
This smart looking coupe is more of a driver’s car than the Spider that’s derived from it, thanks to the convertible version’s severe scuttle shake. Buy the best GTV you can afford – and then enjoy one of today’s most undervalued Italian classics.
