There are some who feel that performance cars today have become a little fey. They long for the days when a fast car had something about it, a hairy-chested vitality that let you know you were in for a wild ride. Some manufacturers have kept that spirit alive and made a tidy sideline in offering big-hearted performance cars. All too often, however, they're not really the sort of machines that can be recommended as a used purchase. Here's one that is. Vauxhall's Monaro wears its heart on its sleeve. It's a beefy coupe powered by a huge V8 engine with a proper rear wheel drive chassis and huge performance. You sit on the correct side and it won't throw a hissy fit if asked to start on a cold morning.
The Monaro makes a very sound used buy, especially if you can track down a previous owner more seduced by the look and sound than the way the car handles on the limit. It's tough to finger an individual model as the pick of the bunch because they've all got something to be said for them, but if pressed, an early VXR would be our choice.
Borrowing £7,500 on a Hire Purchase agreement over 48 months, a representative APR of 18.5% and a deposit of £0.00,
the amount repayable would be £216.89 a month, with a total cost of credit of £2,910.72 and a total amount
payable of £10,410.72.
