Not everyone has a cool $70 million to roll up in a ’63 Ferrari, the most expensive car in the world. Even an entry car from the brand will run you at least a quarter million.
So, how does the Average Joe blow their hair back? Fortunately for those without the padded bank, there are some cheap exotic cars. They are all the luxury for less than half the price.
Put it in drive and check out these 5 affordable exotic sports cars.
Maserati GranTurismo, From the Past
Don’t go out and buy the newest GranTurismo unless you’re loaded. For everyone else, they should check out Maserati’s older models, particularly a GranTurismo from 2012 or earlier.
It’s Maserati’s most popular sedan and seats four. Thankfully all four seats come with seatbelts because its V8 will put heads in seats.
If you’re looking to save a buck or two, check out mphclub.com or used car dealers. They might be a little older, but they’re well worth it.
Nissan’s GT-R of 2020
You might think minivan or big SUV when you hear of Nissans. And that’s what the company banks on. But there’s a hidden gem in the Nissan fleet: it’s the GT-R.
The GT-R is the Every Man’s introduction to supercars. Nissan launched the series all the way back in 2007. Originally, the car had a ferocious 480 horsepower.
It’s now rolling around with nearly 550 HP. If you’d like to test drive exotic cars, be careful with this one. The uninitiated won’t be used to a NASCAR-level supercar.
Aston Martin’s Cheap Exotic Cars
Aston Martin’s Vantage series hit the streets back in 2006. It was Aston Martin’s deviation from their regular formula. The new design was awing; from ferocious to sleek.
This model has seen a few revisions over its lifetime. If you’re looking for a punchier engine, the later models have 420 horsepower and a 4.7-liter engine. But if you’d like to save a few bucks, the earlier models were built with a 4.3-liter engine that pushed 380 horses.
If you can get your hands on its meaner, older brother, the Vantage V12, you’ll be paying twice as much for a 25% increase in power.
A Flower of a Car – the Lotus
It has all the power without the drag. The Lotus Evora GT has a surprisingly light body with an engine that punches above its weight.
This cheap supercar is a little less than 100 grand for the base model. But if you’re willing to shop around, you can find an older model for significantly less.
With its tiny figure and the beefy, supercharged engine under the hood, it goes from nothing to 60 in under 4 seconds. That’ll leave just about anyone in your dust.
All American Muscle, the Challenger
Maybe you’re not an Italian sportscar kinda guy (or gal). Dodge’s 2020 Challenger SRT Super Stock won’t break the bank. But it will break records.
This mighty, American muscle comes with over 800 HP. Its designers created these beasts for drag-strip racing. Its speed is only limited by the tires you choose.
Sweet Ride, Joe
All the Average Joes out there that are looking for luxury can find it in cheap exotic cars. If you have a need for speed but a limp wallet, check out these cars.
For those that love foreign supercars, the GranTurismo, Lotus, and Vantage are great. If you’re looking for a modernized, American classic: the Challenger.
