Ten cool cars for under £10,000

Would you like to stay up to date with the latest from The Executivecondominium?

This article is brought to you by .

You can buy any number of used cars for £10,000 these days (well, the actual number was 252,907 on Auto Trader today when I checked), but most of them are entirely unremarkable hatchbacks or saloons that would bore any car enthusiast to tears.

So if you had £10K to spend, what are the coolest cars you could buy?  Well, we had a hunt through the classifieds and here is what we found.

We only chose from vehicles where there were at least several to choose from, rather than models where there was only one available.

Here’s what we came up with – your list will quite probably be different, so let us know which ten cool cars for £10K would make up your list in the comments section below!


Alfa Romeo 159

Alfa Romeo 159 Ti - 10 cool cars you can buy for less than £10,000 (The Executivecondominium)

   

Launched in 2005, the Alfa Romeo 159 will go down in history as one of the most beautiful saloons ever designed.

This is even more of an achievement than it sounds, as it succeeded one of the other most beautiful saloons ever designed, the Alfa Romeo 156. However, the 159 was definitely better built, so a lot more of them are likely to survive. Get one in black or red with the 19″ TI wheels. Bellissimo!

  1. Hi Stuart – must say I’ve always fancied a Jag or a Bentley. Not so sure about the inclusion of the Fiat, but then taste is a personal thing after all! I’d have put a Volvo in there, but then that’s my peculiarity. Why does the crossfire come with different size rims front and back I wonder?

    • It’s not unusual for cars to come with different size wheels front to rear – although often it’s more an issue of width rather than height. Larger-diameter rear wheels is more common in American cars than European cars, so maybe it’s a bit of hot rod heritage.

    • Yes, sorry about that. I changed my WordPress theme and the images all disappeared. But they are back now – thanks for the heads up!

  2. What about the Vauxhall VX220/Opel Speedster? You can easily get a good one for less than £10K and better than plenty of these.

    • Hi applefan. An absolutely excellent suggestion, and very nearly made the list. Only missed out because it’s really a bit too extreme for most people’s tastes. Perfect as a second or weekend car though.

  3. Bit late in the day to do a post I suppose, but the engine of the Maserati 3200 was neither built nor designed by Ferrari. It was built & designed by Maserati at their Modena factory. The Author is thinking of the F136 engine used in the Maserati 4200, but even then, this was a joint venture engine, designed by Maserati & Ferrari & built by Ferrari.
