The British engineered Noble M12 won’t make many lists, due to its rarity and obscureness. It is a stunning supercar, which delivers extreme performance in a very visceral and raw way.
The car came about from the desire to challenge Ferrari and Porsche, both on and off the track. Producing 352bhp from its 3.0-litre engine, this British supercar pulls from 0-62mph in just 3.7 seconds. This puts it right on par with many other supercars within this price range.
The exterior of the M12 is quite stunning and aggressive, although against other cars on this list, is showing its age slightly now.
Stepping inside echoes a very track driven approach to supercar design. You won’t find many luxuries here, with only the required parts installed. This could put some potential purchasers off, however if you are looking for a powerful track orientated supercar, the Noble M12 could be for you.
Porsche 911 997 GT3 RS
Price From: £99,950
The difference between the regular Porsche 911 997 and the race spec GT3 RS is night and day. While the regular 911 Carrera is a comfy grand tourer, capable of getting you from A-B very quickly. The GT3 RS is a track ready beast, with weight saving and power gains throughout.
Porsche go to extreme lengths to ensure the GT3 RS is the quickest Porsche 911 available to buy. And this iteration, the 997, has a crazy power to weight ratio of 300bhp per tonne.
As well as producing much more power than standard models, the GT3 RS also gets an extreme makeover, with a much more aggressive looking bodykit. The rear arches are a whole 64mm wider than standard models.
For those who are interested in pure performance, the Porsche 911 GT3 RS offers a solid route to achieving this.
Aston Martin Vantage (2019)
Price From: £92,900
This was a tough call, deciding wether to put this Vantage on our list or its bigger brother, the DB11.
We decided to go for the “baby” Aston, due to its stunning good looks, and accessibility as an affordable supercar under £100k.
When brand new this Aston Martin Vantage would set you back over £120,000. But look on the classifieds and you will easily find a selection of used models for sale for under £95,000.
And being so new, the condition of the cars for sale are top notch. And you would struggle to find one with mileage over 10,000.
Compared to the bigger DB11, the new Vantage is missing a few cylinders, and around 100bhp. Yet it will get you from 0-62 mph quicker at only 3.6seconds, and will top out just under 200mph. When travelling at slightly slower speeds, this cheap supercar will give you around 27mpg, which is certainly nothing to be sniffed at for a supercar this quick!
It is also, smaller and easier to drive around town, allowing it to be a much wiser choice to live with.
