I know discussions of value have been done to death but I've just spent some time looking at 147 GTA's, as I have quite a fancy for one. Prices for an unmolested original (save for q2) car are really quite strong.
Then I look back at what I already have in a Gtv v6 - absolutely unbeatable in my opinion, pound/pleasure. In fact even if Gtv prices doubled from where they are, I would still say they represent a superb bargain.
I can't think of or find any other car that satisfies on so many levels, of course all subjective but as I see it;
Timeless Pininfarina styling
Wonderful engine, even in standard guise (ie standard exhaust)
Cabin that still feels very special
Timeless Pinifarina styling again
Affordable, not too horrific maintenance costs as long as you are on top of it all.
Relative and increasing individuality.
Challenge - can anyone else name a car that comes close to the above at a similar price point?
