Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

Even the cheapest GT Coupe costs more than £100,000, while fuel, tax, insurance and tyre bills are also going to be steep. But, then, the same is true of rivals, and if you can afford to buy it, you can probably afford to run it.

The GT Coupe comes pretty well equipped, with dual-zone climate control, keyless start, automatic emergency braking and LED headlights all standard, although there are also plenty of pricey options: everything from track-focused ceramic brakes to carbon-fibre exterior detailing.

In terms of which GT Coupe you should buy, we reckon the GT C makes the most sense. It’s not quite a useable as a Porsche 911 Turbo or as plush as an Aston Martin DB11, but it delivers an old-school driving experience that is truly intoxicating.

However, just be aware that a mid-life facelift is right around the corner. It’s expected to bring a mild increase in power along with the digital cockpit found in the latest CLS saloon.
