The Cars

The Cars

Firstly, and most importantly, the car must be a 2 door coupé or convertible sports or GT car. That means it can’t be a 4 door saloon (e.g. Subaru Impreza). It also means it can’t be a hot hatch (e.g. Golf GTi). There is one exception; namely the Mazda RX8, which is technically a 4 door, but has the lining and styling of a coupé. It dared to be different, it’s in the right price bracket, and we think it deserves a spot. Drivers can submit requests for further exceptions, if they can convince us the car is worth it.

The car must be a production car, built after 1990. No kit-cars. Absolutely no kit-cars. Oh, and it’s gotta have a petrol engine. As much as we love a good diesel that just isn’t appropriate for this challenge.

The maximum you can spend on the car, when purchasing it, is £2500. That doesn’t mean the car has to be worth £2500, but you can’t pay more than that. Drivers will need to provide a bill of sale, or receipt, from the buyer.

The car must have an MOT and road tax. The purchase price must include road tax and MOT. You can’t buy that separately.

That said, these are the cars that are competing for the 2014-2015 Le Mons Challenge!
