Cheapest German Supercars
There is no better place to start than across the pond in Germany. It’s well known that the German car industry is one of the best in the world. Roughly 1 in 4 cars on the road in Britain is German. And when it comes to producing supercars, which are cheaper than their European competition, they are just as strong.
BMW & Audi
Both BMW and Audi have produced cracking supercars. Audi with the widely loved R8, and BMW with their innovative i8. Both of these supercars cost over £100,000 when new, however both are now old enough to fall into the cheap supercar category.
When searching the classifieds for cheap supercars, you will find a plethora of first generation Audi R8s. You can pick up an Audi R8 now for little over £30,000. That’s insane! A £100,000 supercar capable of hitting 190mph for just £30,000.
BMW on the other hand have a much newer supercar in the i8. Being released in 2014, the i8 is only 5 years old today, compared to the R8 which originates from 2006. The i8 doesn’t boast the impressive power figures that the R8 does. However what it does do is redefine what being a supercar means, with its unique hybrid powertrain.
The BMW i8, despite it’s young age, is one of the cheapest supercars you can buy, with models available for just over £40,000.
Porsche approach the supercar world in a different way. With the engine sticking out of the rear, opposed to the middle, Porsche have become masters of creating the ultimate super-GT car.
The 911 has been a staple cheaper supercar for decades. It has always been a much more live-able supercar. The Porsche 911 has enough power to break in to the supercar market, yet it is also comfortable and drive-able on British roads.
However, Porsche have entered another one of its models into the supercar market. With the 718 Cayman, Porsche have created a smaller sports car with the power output which challenges many supercars. In its GTS or GT4 form it becomes transformed into a track-ready beast. The former, the GTS, falls in to our category with models available to buy from just £50,000.
