    Too broad.
    What are you planning to do with it?

    Race car or street car?

    Road car got to be a 20 odd year old BMW / Jaguar.
    Race car? I suppose the quickest thing would be something like a self built FED for the strip or an old 328 for drifting / sprints / circuits.

    Not for a turbo'd one. You are aware that they aren't turbo'd as standard?

    A neighbour of mine is selling his for £8k twin-turbo manual UK car. Absolutely stunning condition and only 32k miles since 1992 since it is a K-reg. Claims that's the going rate for good ones.
