There’s a dilemma that every petrol head faces; the cars you can afford don’t go fast enough; the really fast cars are way out your financial ability. If only Ferraris didn’t cost that much! The Holy Grail for those initiated into the cult of petrol and speed is a fast car that is affordable.
Here are some fast cars that you can afford with savings and financial discipline. For the sake of clarity, we’ll define affordable as anything under $25,000.
Your Best Options
At $24,150, the Mustang is an affordable object of desire. Packing a V6 engine with a respectable 3.7-liter displacement, the Mustang is an absolute bargain. The vehicle is a 6-speed manual transmission and looks every inch the 300 horsepower it packs. Mustang is a strong brand associated with strength and masculinity, as well.
The Volkswagen Golf GTI comes with a 2.0-liter engine, generating 210 horsepower. The GTI is turbocharged and easy to maintain. This car will set you back $24,990.
Another good GT is the Hennessey Venom GT. While the Venom is considerably more expensive than the Golf, it is much faster as well. If you are looking for a real car that you can enjoy for years to come, this is probably one of your best bets.
With a little investment in research, it is easy to find fast cars you can afford. Other suggestions include the Mini Cooper S which is famed for its superb handling and go-kart driving experience and the Kia Forte Koup.
