Launched in the late 1950s, the P1800 certainly feels it when compared to the BMW (and more specifically the Alfa) and is more a Swedish MGB GT. For all that, the P1800 is a great, classy GT coupé boasting looks time hasn’t diminished and although the sportshatch replacement (1800ES) isn’t quite so head turning it compensates by being individual and practical. Late 2-litre engine is quite quick in fuel injected form while overdrive makes cruising easy on all models. A bit dated to drive, if you want something more modern, check out the cultured C70 coupés of the 1990s which are scintillating in Turbo form and a real hoot if a handful to drive. Cheap too.
