It is often assumed that to own a fast car, you need to be exceedingly wealthy with a high flying job. But when you look closer and go through the many online used car listings, there are some amazing bargains to be had. Let’s take a look at some of the best.

BMW M3 4.0 2007


Perhaps you are looking for a car that could eat you alive when you aren’t looking? The BMW M3 easily fits the bill. Coming in just under our budget, the M3 is no stranger to high speeds and luxury. Under the bonnet is a roaring V8 engine that packs 414bhp and hits 60mph in less than 5 seconds. You may think that there aren’t any down sides, well it does cost a small fortune to run as it drinks fuel but could you argue with this beast?


Preowned prices average at around; £19,000 for the BMW M3 4.0 2007.

Mitsubishi Lancer 2.0 EVO X


Even in its slowest version, the Mitsubishi EVO X can reach 60mph in just 4.7 seconds.  The speed coupled with its practicality make this car ideal for the boy racer, dad and JDM fanatics alike. If you want a flashy interior, then the EVO X is most likely not for you as it is plain and simple inside but surely the rest makes up for that?

An iconic rally car that is sure to get you looks whilst you cruise down town, for under £20k? It’s a no-brainer!

Preowned prices average at around; £17,000 for the Mitsubishi Lancer 2.0 EVO X.

Porsche 911 MK 996


It’s quite hard to believe that one of the most iconic sport cars of all time is available to purchase for under £20k. The 2002 Porsche 911 packs 315bhp and has a top speed of 177mph! Although the 911 does have 4 seats, you shouldn’t expect to fit anyone other than the kids in the back as there is barely any room at all.


Preowned prices average at around; £18,000 for the Porsche 911 MK 996.

Jaguar XKR 2007


Perhaps you are looking for a car that would not look out of place parked outside of a country manor, the Jaguar XKR more than fits the bill. Considering the 4.2 litre engine can reach 60 miles per hour in under 5 seconds, it is definitely not just the older gentleman’s car which it has become known as. The downsides are quite hefty being the 16.5mpg and the considerable tax amount of £515 per year.


Preowned prices average at around; £19,500 for the Jaguar XKR 2007.
