Relics of the Ice Age: Best Combustion Engine Deals Car News

With its Pininfarina design and Ferrari-built 4.7-liter V8, the Maserati Granturismo looks as good as it drives. This big coupe develops 433 horsepower, resulting in a 0-62mph time of just 4.9 seconds and a top speed of 183mph. A fully automatic gearbox was added in 2009, and you get all the comforts you need for comfortable cruising. This thunderous, Ferrari-like performance means a pre-loved Granturismo is a smart buy today, with early S models available for as little as £ 26,000.

Fiat 500 Twinair

In 2010, Fiat gave its pretty city car the Twinair: a tiny two-cylinder turbo engine. He claimed that this unique proposition could deliver excellent fuel economy of 69.5 mpg, but you’ll prefer to take advantage of its uniqueness. Although it only produces 82 horsepower, it is quite noisy in town (although it takes 11 seconds to go from 0 to 62 mph), and the landaulet 500C lets you hear both cylinders in all their glory. The best 500 Twinairs cost around £ 3,500, but you’ll need a few thousand more for a soft top.
