Hello everybody, this is my first topic in this forum, and I must say im really impressed by this forum. (Y)
So, im a 20 Y O guy and im looking for a coupe car, I want it to go from 0 - 100 in less than 10 but more than 5 Sec. I saw the Mitsubishi Eclipse and I really love it, It has everything i want, but the interior is really boring, and many ppl say that its not a good car to drive. but now i heared about the V6 Challenger, i don't know how much it costs, my budget is up to AED 95, 000. And I don't really want a used car...
can you help me in finding the best car?
thanks

Why does it have to be slower than 5 seconds? lol
And even they did have the 350Z, it would be way above your budget.
The only car that fits your bill (coupe, faster than 10 slower than 5, below 95k) is the Eclipse.
Get the 3.8 V6 and call it a day.

Hyundai Genesis Coupe?? I am not sure what it costs.

Your 20. You are buying a coupe. The insurance is going to be very costly and difficult.

The Genesis coupe is definitely worth the money. I think you should try and get it. Push your budget up a bit.

Also worth looking at the following:

VW Golf GTi
Seat Cupra / R
Renault Clio RS
Honda Civic Type R
Subaru WRX (not STi)

A couple of them are above your budget, but they are giving you Insurance/Maintinance/Registration contracts that you would otherwise pay for.

Keep in mind, that insurance on 2 door coupe/sports car worth 95K is expensive, regardless of your age! And, maintinance costs eventually add up.

I would definitely look at the GTi and Type R. Both are beauties and will fit your needs perfectly. Also, both suit your age perfectly :wink:
