No stats this time, just sheer desirability. Which of those two classic Pininfarina french coupes do you prefer?

as a classic, the 504 V6, as a daily driver the 406 2.2 Hdi...

The 406 is a classic? By what criteria?

the 504 is, the 406 not....I have considered buying one, but it lacks too much interior space to be practical for my needs.

Could be considered a future classic.

I agree. I just might get the 406 with an engine that had a little more hutzpa than 2.2. Did they make it with a V6 diesel?

IIRC, 2.2-litre four cyl petrol, 3-litre V6 petrol and the 2.2 diesel.

406 looks disgusting imo, 504 is actually nice....

504, there is something Alfa-esque about it.

there even was a 2.0 petrol car. And with some minor changes the diesel can get enough "hutzpa" to "deal" with the V6.....

I'd need a CD for the soundtrack, though. ;)

Future classics? 406 Coupe still has a long way. In fact the Merc 300 CE is more desireable

It has a long way true, but it has future classic genes all over it. Especially considering the 407 Coupe.

What kind of fact is that?
