Go for the V6, Ive had the twinny and they are great , but the sound and grunt of the V6 makes you smile like a nutter... well it does me it is a bit of a petrolholic but not really that much in it between the two. If you can, have a test drive .

V6, I've been so happy with mine, fantastic sound (particularly with Supersprint full exhaust), and through the six-speed manual I look forward to driving it every time.

Put your foot down - hear and feel joy.
Open the bonnet and behold beauty.

2.5 V6. Awesome engine, super quick (7.3 secs to 60) and a gorgeous 6-speed manual gearbox. Drop the gears down till you hit 5000 RPM, hit the accelerator and feel it go (and listen to the fantastic noise the engine makes). I've had mine for years and I still love it.

(The 156 GTA is even better...)
