Best Fast Cheap Used Car
Feel like going really fast? Tired of that slow moving, slow driving, boring “snail” of a car? Then perhaps it’s time for a change. You don’t have to spend thousands of pounds for a car that can go really fast to get that blood flowing again. Here are the top 5 cars you can get for little under 5000 £.
On our fifth place we have the Mercedes Benz 500 SL and stands proud as one of the most recognizable automotive icons of the past century. Consider that it’s a 1990 car that dropped under 6.0 seconds on a 0-60 mph run. It is very fast despite the fact that it weights nearly tow tons. The transmission is flawless making this behemoth run unbelievably smooth and take sharp turns with professional sports precision. The engine, a rocking 326 hp 6 liter V8, is built to run and never stop. Electrical features like a novel electric folding roof and automatic emergency pop-up roll bar, useful to this very day, makes this car not only fast, but comfortable and efficient as well. It can be yours for only £3,995.
Now targeting fuel economy, cabin space, safety and compact design, in the past used to be all about speed and performance: the 1995 Toyota MR2 Turbo. Rivaling the Porsche performance at a quarter of the price, the Toyota MR2 amazed the world with an acceleration of 0-60 mph in 5.7 seconds. The “mid-engine rear wheel drive 2 seater” is an incredible machine packed with a 2 liter engine that is linked to a turbocharger. It develops a massive 230 hp and combined with the amazing light weight of the car, it feels like a rocket boost leaving a Porsche Cayman behind. It sticks to the road like glue having unbelievable handling performances and can you imagine it? Less than £900. Now that’s a deal
Our number 3 is a real looker. When the Nissan Z32 300ZX was launched in 1991 buyers weren’t expecting much of it since all the disappointments its predecessors brought, which made the impact all the more powerful. It was a large car, luxurious, even a bit futuristic. Packed with a whapping 280 hp 3 liter v6 engine and a radical twin turbocharger, left far behind the supposed undefeated Ferrari 328 GTB. The handling was everything you would expect it to be, coming from a muscle rear wheel drive sportscar. Performance, power, adaptability and luxury is what projected the Japanese super coupe on our third place with a starting price of only £2,500.
The runner up, is the blazing hot Mitsubishi 3000 GT, it might be fast, ripping the tar with it’s 5.6 seconds acceleration, but it’s very heavy weighing 1740 kg and 15 foot long, it will never have enough agility to match a hatchback. The assets that made this car the runner up is its looks and its engine: a V6 Twin Turbo Dodge Eagle Talon that develops 282 hp. With a price range of £2,000.
And here it is: the mind boggling Porsche 928 series 4. This car will be shocking the road around it developing a massive 326 hp from a 5 liter V8 engine that will shake the very frame of the car when it’s turned on. An electrifying display of power and prowess comes with driving this speedster, the Porsche lives up to its reputation to this very day as one of the strongest, fastest, most luxurious supercars ever made. The 928 deserves first place with a price tag of only £2,995.
You just got to have it!
