Hi there!
Does anyone know how many 820 turbo coupes with the 200hp engine were made and how many of them that are still on the road?
Cheers
Gunnar

Not many.

How many left doesn't separate the turbo coupes from the other styles and if you try to decipher the data it appears to say there about 10 left.

But just from members on here and cars that come up for sale, I'd take a guess that there are maybe 20 in the UK and maybe the same number outside the country.

Another member maybe able to give better information that my poorly researched guess.
Tom.

As a bit of an indication, when i got my 827 Coupé there were 30 left according to howmanyleft.co.uk
Out of that 30, if memory serves correctly, 22 were on the road, the other 8 were SORN.
Over the next 6 months i knew of at least 6 827 Coupés that were scrapped for whatever reason so in theory, only 24 the existed.
Fast forward about 4 years and the numbers are back up to about 80 total due to "barn finds" where cars have been put in a garage/barn or similar and/or not changed owners since before 2001 and have now been re-registered.

At a rough guess, there are probably about twice as many 820 Coupés (turbo and n/asp) as 827 models and there are even a few KV6 825 Coupés around.

Either way Gunnar, between you and Henrik i think you have a large percentage of the non-UK Coupés still in existence! :wink: :D
Cheers,
Dave

Thanks Dave!

Do you have any opinion of what the price of a very good LHD 820 turbo coupe with the 200hp Engine should be?
Cheers Gunnar

You're welcome Gunnar - as for value, i have enough trouble trying to work out vale on an 800 on home soil with the handlebars on the right! :wink: :lol:

Joking aside, it would be very difficult to even suggest a value for a car totally sight unseen in a currency i'm not familiar with (although i did recently work out Kr 1 =~£ 0.09 or Kr11 = £1) in a market i don't know (i'm assuming the car is in Sweden) and i could give you either a wildly optimistic or pessimistic figure or by some sheer miracle, get it spot on! Chances of the latter are pretty remote i have to admit!

Over recent times, i've seen various Coupés on ebay that have been listed with incredibly low starting bids all the way up to £8995.
A couple of years back, i was shopping in my local town and was offered £5000 cash for my Coupé while others similar have sold on ebay for anywhere between £600 and £6000 but that's in the UK market. I don't know how that compares to the Swedish market though.

Have you got a car in mind?

As for finding one with under 100000km (60000miles), that is pretty rare and i'd have to ask why the mileage is so low. Could be many innocent reasons for it or there could be something more sinister going on. :wink: :D
Cheers,
Dave

228185 was made in Oct of 1995 so your car was only 18 earlier so was either the same month or very late September.
