    The Coupé Battle pt.II: America vs Germany vs UK vs France vs Japan vs Korea vs Italy

    Apologies for the loooong title....

    Thought it might be interesting to see the results of this one - slightly smaller coupés from around the world, with two from each country...

    America:

    Pontiac G6 Coupé GXP...



    ...and Chrysler Crossfire SRT-6



    France:

    Peugeot 407 Coupé...



    ....and Renault Avantime 3.0 V6



    Germany:

    BMW 335i, 335d...



    ....and Audi TT 3.2 quattro



    Italy:

    Alfa GT 3.2 V6.....



    ....and Alfa Brera 3.2 V6 Q4



    Japan:

    Mazda RX-8...



    ...and Nissan 350Z



    Korea:

    Hyundai Coupé 2.7 V6...



    ...and errmmm.....

    UK:

    Rover 75 Coupé...



    ....and MG TF GT



    There you are - 7 countries, (almost!) two cars for each - so vote!

    Before I get abused and flamed and branded as a GM-hater and burned at stake etc etc; I know the last two MG Rover products didn't make production, it's just a what if situation really. And yes, the Avantime isn't in production any more, and yes there isn't a Korean one, and yes...

    But PLEASE, for the love of almighty God can we PLEASE just not nitpick and grumble and groan and just take this thread for what it is; a little light entertainment...

    I cannot stress enough how I don't want this thread to dwindle down into the 'Brit vs USA' and 'wtf we dun't do nuffink' arguments that seem to have dominated many threads recently...

    Anyway, have fun deciding...

    Ja, Deutschland. Der BMW und der Audi sind wunderbar.

    Are you talking in general, or just out of these?

    Because as far as style, I'll take a Solstice / G6 over any other coupe.

    Germany makes the better sports car in my opinion, if taken in the context of total performance. When considering cost etc....oh sorry, I'm nit picking.

    Germany for sure

    I said France, just to be difficult. I'd slam you for adding the Avantime, but they've got nothing else! Hahaha! No wait... the Megane RS is a hottie.

    Avantime rocks - how can you not like it?!

    Italians really don't appeal - the Brera sounds like a tractor with the awful diesel and the GT isn't that enticing.

    Let me introduce you to a little-known car named Mustang.

    Yes, lovely thing isn't it.

    Sadly it's not in there though, so live with it. Ah well, if I don't get bollocked by a GM fanboy I get flamed by someone who is deeply in love with the Mustang....it's just not possible to do anything right here because you get criticised. Pathetic.

    Saleen S7, SSC Aero, Mosler, Ford GT, XLR, Viper, Shelby Series II, Corvette, Panoz, Camaro, Mustang, Solistice, Sky, etc..

    My vote goes for America.

    based on the cars shown... gotta say Germany.

    overall... Americans are best at lower end, Italians for upper end...
