New challenge: Find a supercar for under £50,000

Share
In our latest video, Rory Reid sets himself the challenge of finding the best supercars listed on site for less than £50,000. Want a go?

Head over to the Auto Trader app and show us what you find!
Mercedes AMG GT
The Mercedes AMG GT is ridiculously fast and dynamic, not to mention beautiful. It has also depreciated to the point where many more people could consider buying one on the used market for pretty decent money.

One of the AMG GT examples Rory found is a Category N, which means it has been in an accident but there’s been no structural damage.

At £50k, you’re still getting a lot of great car for not a lot of money.

BMW i8
This innovative hybrid sports car mixes bold styling with a fantastic mix of performance and efficiency. The dihedral doors and large rear buttresses give it a futuristic look, and as comfortable being driven on the high street as it is on the open road.

Sorted by price, we found BMW i8s starting from £35k.

Bentley Continental GT
Simply put, Bentley Continental GTs are great hand-crafted luxury cars. They might be rather expensive brand new, but they’re pretty cheap on the used market, giving many of us a unique chance to experience stunning craftsmanship and performance for a reasonably low price.

The 2004 model featured in our video was just £13k – the same price as a Ford Fiesta.

Ferrari F430
There's a fair few Ferraris on Auto Trader, and the F430 comes in at £50k - earning a spot on our list. As is always the way, it's easy to get sidetracked on the app (especially when you're daydreaming about cars like these) so make sure you watch the video to see what else Rory discovers.

Nissan GTR
Nissan GTRs have a solid reputation for offering supercar performance in a sports car price bracket. Brand new, they go from £84,000 but we’ve found used models for around £50k.

And the good news is that, bar a few facelifts and tweaks over the years, GTRs use the same platform and the same engine so you know you’re getting something good.

Audi R8
Arguably the perfect everyday sports car, the R8 doesn’t come cheap if you’re buying new.

But we’ve found Audi R8s going cheap in the used car market. In his search, Rory found an ‘09 reg with good mileage for £33.9k and a V8 Spyder for £43k – that’s £3k below market value.

Porsche 911
At the time of writing, we’ve got around 2,000 Porsche 911s on site, going from as little as £8,000.

One of the world’s most iconic sports cars, the Porsche 911 is beautifully engineered with a strong engine and superb handling. Well worth considering.
