Which used Vauxhall Monaro coupe should I buy?
Our choice is the most powerful of the 5.7-litre V8 models because there are enough of them around second-hand and their performance is only a fraction behind that of the even more potent 6.0-litre. The 5.7 version also has fractionally better fuel economy, although no one ever buys a Monaro to save the planet.
That said, even the 328bhp Monaro is a very quick car, and all models come with a rumbling V8 soundtrack for free.
They also all have spacious cabins and decent equipment, but the VXR models look a little more aggressive and less 'jelly mould' than the standard models. However, the VXR's repositioned fuel tank does mean its boot is not quite as large as the standard model's.
