What can make you look rich quicker than buying a convertible car with that shiny Porsche badge on it?

2.BMW i3

The beauty of this car is that it’s not known by everyone, meaning that it’s easily assumed to be worth more than it actually is.

This fully electric hatchback can be grabbed for around £15,000 second hand, which will come as a shock for many. The futuristic eye-catching design is sure to turn heads and due to the £30,000 RRP, people would never expect that one could be bought for half that amount.

The combination of the unique design, posh interior and tech-heavy loadout makes this car a great appearance-booster.

3.Ford Mustang

Just think, you could say you drive a Mustang for under £15,000! There are a good amount of used 5th gen (2005-2014) Mustangs available to buy out there for far less than you might expect.

Although they may look old when sat next to a 6th gen model, but they’re still fantastically handsome cars nonetheless.

For that small price you get to experience the mighty roar of the engine the Mustangs are known for on a daily basis, as well as the ability to brag about owning a modernly classic muscle car.

4.Audi Q7

There seems to be an abundance of Audi Q7’s (3.0 TDI) available for very low prices. This luxurious SUV can be swept up for a mere £6,500!

Although a lot of them do happen to have over 100,000 miles on the clock, this large SUV is still a great bargain!

Perfect for families, the Q7 boasts 229 bhp and reasonable fuel consumption considering its size.

5.BMW Z4

Even though most of them are over 10 years old, this sporty convertible can easily be found for under £10,000, sometimes as low as roughly £4,000!


Furthermore, even though it sounds like it’s old, they still look incredibly fresh today. There’s loads of fun to be had with these roadsters, especially with a 0-60 mph time of around 5 seconds.


But more importantly, they carry the BMW badge making it appear to be an expensive sports car, rather than an incredibly affordable one!

6.Audi A6

The sleek and sexy Audi A6 may look like an ultra-expensive luxury saloon, but actually can be pretty affordable.

Available used for as little as £9,000, these classy cars have gone down a lot in price from their original £30,000 price tag.

So now you can get the executive look on a budget and most people won’t even know the difference.

7.Toyota GT86

Readily available for around £13,000, this Japanese sports car is way less expensive than people think thanks to the Fast and Furious-like appearance.

They still look very modern as well due to the fact that they were only released in 2012 which is another factor to them looking more expensive than they are.

Sporting a lightweight body and superb handling, the GT86 makes for a great bit of fun, as well as a great showpiece for the driveway.

Another deluxe car that can impress your peers without making you broke is the S Class Mercedes, which can be found for around £9,000-£14,000.

9.Bentley Continental GT

These Bentley’s may seem like they’re just for the rich footballers and Hollywood celebs, but actually they’re not as expensive as you think. The price range for the Continental GTs is very wide, with some of them easily costing upwards of £65,000.

10.DNA Replica Ferrari (360, 430, 458)

Lastly, for our final entry we’re including something rather humorous. You can buy a fake Ferrari!

Ferrari 430

That’s right, DNA Automotive is a company that specialises in creating replica Ferrari cars that look like Ferraris on the outside, but underneath you’ll find that all the parts are used from other cars. So, you won’t get speed, but you will get to fool everyone around you!

Only costing around £20,000, you’ll be saving a ridiculous amount of money and as long as your pride can take it, you’ll be laughing round every corner.
