Did you know that you can rent your own BMW or other luxury car? This post opens the door to the Ins and Outs of Luxury and Exotic Car Rental. Let’s carry on down the road and see just how you can drive, or buy a supercar.
Can I Buy a Supercar for under $100 000?
Have you ever asked yourself, “Can I buy a supercar?” What was your answer to the speed freak in you? To the average American owning a supercar is just something that we dream about, right? But what if I told you that you can buy a supercar for less than $100 000? That should get the old vein oil pumping a bit faster, if you catch my drift.
A recent trend has emerged where sellers of supercars are persuading their customers that these vehicles are an investment opportunity that increases in value every year. A supercar’s actual value is much more complicated. Just like any other investment it cannot be guaranteed that it will increase in value indefinitely. In fact, over the first few years, the chances are that it will decrease is a rather safe bet. This depreciation calculator from Caredge.com will show you just how much of your investment disappears around the corner in the initial time after purchase.
With this said, let’s take a look at what you can buy for less than 100k, but first, let me pull up the handbrake for an interesting fact: Did you know even billionaires can’t always get what they want? Supercar makers like Ferrari, Aston Martin, Lamborghini and McLaren will only sell limited edition cars to a VERY short list of people, who they get to know on a more personal level before they give them an invitation to buy a supercar.
But don’t get depressed, here are two supercars that you can buy without an invitation – or a billion in the bank.
The 2008 to 2012 models sell for between $59 000 to $95 000.
I can’t believe the Audi R8 has been around this long. When it was launched in 2008, the 420 horsepower V-8 and Quattro all-wheel drive made it Audi’s first halo car since the original Quattro. The car was also hailed as the first supercar you could drive every day. The V-10 version arrived later, and a 2014 update added Audi’s fast S-Tronic dual-clutch transmission. One of the most affordable used supercars in the market today, the original R8 is now a bargain and a future classic.
The 2000 to 2004 360 sells for between $67 000 and $71 000.
A list of supercars is incomplete without a Ferrari, right? In a list of budget supercars like this, a prancing horse is not out of place. Ferrari’s 360 was the car that brought the company into the 21st century. Ferrari created the 360 Challenge Stradale, the first road-going Ferrari race car. Additionally, it was the last modern Ferrari to come standard with a manual transmission. Don’t miss the chance to buy one with a stick – their value will only increase. Nevertheless, the 360 is still one of the most reasonably priced Ferraris, and one of the cheapest if you want to buy a supercar.
