The 5 at 5 Two-door coupes are sporty looking and fun to drive. We’ve got one for you, whatever your bank balance.

WITH THEIR SPORTY profile, sleek lines and fun image, coupes are very desirable cars – if not the most practical.

But if you don’t have to worry about rear passengers or how you’ll get the shopping home (lucky you) then a two-door coupe could be a perfect choice.

We’ve rounded up five coupes, from the top-end dream car to the distinctly affordable.

German engineering, mind-blowing performance and stunning supercar looks, this Audi R8 V10 has it all. Despite its Top Trumps-winning stats it remains a very useable car  and could be the daily driver of your dreams. Once the car of choice for Tony Stark, this example looks stunning in its metallic blue paint.

Few cars in history are more famous than the Ford Mustang. This manual 5.0-litre V8 GT model is the pinnacle of Mustangs, plus the Ruby Red paintwork and black wheels make it look spectacular. Why settle for a boring, conservative coupe when you can have this!

The Continental GT allows you to cover cross-country journeys in sublime luxury. With swathes of leather and hand-crafted wooden interior inlays, few other cars can make you feel this special behind the wheel.

2008 Jaguar XK, €31,950

Yomac Cars Yomac Cars

When it comes to stylish coupes Jaguar has impressive form and the XK is one of its more recent models. Its 4.2-litre V8 engine loves to purr and has plenty of performance to make this Big Cat move. The long bonnet and sleek roofline make this a very elegant coupe.

2005 Lexus SC Coupe, €14,850

Dermot Hughes Cars Dermot Hughes Cars

Lexus aren’t all about hybrid saloons. This 2005 SC features a folding metal roof, meaning when the sun does shine you can fully retract it in just 25 seconds. Its 288hp 4.3-litre V8 means the Lexus is no slouch performance wise – but is just as happy to cruise along in real comfort.
