A coupe (or coupé) is a two or four-seater car with a fixed roof and two doors. The style is generally used for sportier models in a manufacturer's range.In the 19th century, a coupé was a carriage with two doors enclosing seating for two with an exposed area on the front for a driver. In recent times it has become very common for a coupe's roof to slope down at the back in a shallow 'streamlined' fashion.This is sometimes called a 'fastback' design. Speakers of American English pronounce the word to rhyme with "sloop" (IPA) /ku:p/).and spell it without an accent. In Europe and the UK, the original French spelling and a semi-French pronunciation are often used — ( /'ku:pe?/).
