You need a ‘six’ or V8 to make a coupé go as well as it looks! Here’s a delightful dozen to consider; all prices relate to typical average-to-good examples



Half a century ago the Triumph Stag was intended to be straight six-powered until its lack of power led to the troubled V8 instead. If it had stayed a ‘six’ who knows how the Stag’s fortunes would have panned out? Now this V8-powered GT has reached 45, the Stag has matured into the reliable, easy-owning combined sports roadster it should have always been and a classic you can’t ignore if you’re after a big-engined performance classic although with just 145bhp to play with, a Stag is not particularly fast or a taut handler in standard form. Rover V8-powered versions, once so popular and desirable due to their better reliability, are now seen as second-string Stags and now usually priced 25 per cent lower even though a good, well sorted one (and sadly many conversions aren’t) can certainly get a move on.
