What about driving a high-performance used cars ni vehicle that didn’t cost you an arm and a leg to own! Well, it’s possible, and yes, in our lifetime. Below is a list of several motors that are not only fun to drive but covert reasonably small price tags.
As odd as it seems, to have such a model feature in this list, this is a £30,000 BMW model that has the speeds you dream about. Underneath, the car carries a 3.0 litre turbocharged straight six petrol engine. The engine produces 316bhp and 450N of torque.
Moreover, it’s a rear drive and other than letting its tail loose, it is also a stable car. The model comes in a three or five-door preference and you can choose between six-speed manual transmission and an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Ford Fiesta ST
The drive feels nimble, quick and surprisingly incredibly fun for a car in its price range. The car is powered by a 1.6 litre turbocharged petrol engine. The car features three trim levels set at a difference price of £1,000.
The ST-2 trim comes with additional options including; heated seats, keyless start and the top trim ST-3 is equipped with every kind of kit necessary to you.
SEAT Leon Cupra
A close Golf GTi Cousin, this is a vehicle that offers similar levels of grip. The car produces more power and has the same handling as the Golf, albeit a little less pricey than its cousin.
You choose between two versions; Cupra 265 that produces 265 metric horsepower and the Cupra 280 that emits 280 metric horsepower. The price between the two differ with £1,250. The 280 comes with extra options including; satellite navigation, big wheels and five-door option.
The 265 model comes with a manual transmission only and is also a three door model.
Ford Focus ST Estate
The incredibly fast Ford Focus Estate is picking up from where its little brother (The hatchback) left off, and this model comes will a 2.0 litre turbocharged petrol engine. It produces 246bph and 340Nm of torque.
The model has a big boot and despite the fact that it’s a thirsty machine, it provides the user with plenty of fun on the road.
To be honest, its rough round the edges, but this makes the model more fun. Fit with a 3.7 litre V6 engine, with the drive going back to the rear, the model is equipped with a six-speed manual gearbox. Fans of “Macho” compare it to an old-fashioned hairy-chested sports vehicle.
Has a short kit base, however, it’s reasonably priced at a little less than £27,000. It kicks in well over 300bhp and accelerates from 0-60mph within five seconds. The unfortunate bit is its thirst for fuel and high CO2 emissions that will cost you a bit of tax.
Skoda Octavia vRS
Has a higher top speed than the famed Golf GTi from Volkswagen. Comes in petrol and diesel models with a 2.0-litre 217bhp petrol engine. The diesel engine emits 182bph. The diesel model costs a little more than the petrol engine but it is a fast economic model.
