SOTW: HYUNDAI COUPE V6
Not one for the badge snobs, but a fine budget coupe nonetheless
But between the S Coupe and now, Hyundai's coupe offering was the imaginatively badged 'Coupe'. And unlike the original S it's actually managed to garner a fairly faithful following of enthusiasts, albeit in America, where it is called the 'Tiburon'.
Looking at today's SOTW it's easy to see why it finds fans, too, especially in the US, where badge snobbery isn't (always) so pervasive. It's sleek, has a whiff of Ferrari Daytona about its nose (squint, blink and repeatedly hit yourself about the face and you might just see it), is well appointed inside and comes with the option of a lazy-but-leggy 2.7-litre V6 (167hp or so, for stat fans).
And provided you can see past that badge, and the fact that this particular example's bodywork and wheels are a bit scuffed-up in places, the less badge-sensitive among us could be enjoying South Korea's finest performance motoring for the price of a cheap holiday.

The Good Points: The car is mechanically sound and drives really nicely, plus the V6 engine is extremely smooth and pulls nicely; the interior is in really good condition and I'm including the ALPINE MP3/USB/iPod Stereo I purchased. All electrics work perfectly and I've replaced the boot release switch and telescopic areal so these all work now too.
Due to the points above I'm only asking for £1000
Thanks for looking
