Alfa Romeo Brera

Launched in 2005, the Brera was effectively a three-door coupe version of the latest Spider, which would arrive the following year. It remained in production for just five years, and was offered with 2.2- and 3.2-litre petrol engines (the latter a glorious V6) as well as a 2.4-litre turbo-diesel.

The Brera offered strong performance and an entertaining driving style. What really mattered though, was its gorgeous styling. Surely this was one of the best-looking sporting coupes of its era? Pick up an early example now for £5000 or less and enjoy some Italian brio!
