German, Japanese, Italian, French… In short, the most prestigious brands for sports cars are numerous, not to mention the models and prices on offer. If you are considering buying a sports car and you are looking for some tips to make the right choice, here is a little guide that will be very useful.
The different types of sports cars to choose from
In the field of sports cars, there are countless makes and models to choose from. The most common vehicles are small sports cars and GTIs such as Audi’s RS3 or BMW’s M3 E46. There’s something for every taste, it’s up to you to choose the brand you prefer. These cars also include sports compacts, sports sedans, convertible coupes, roadsters, GTs and supercars.
It’s generally difficult to advise a driver on which make and model to choose since when buying a sports car, everyone has very different tastes and expectations. The best thing to do is to ask an expert’s opinion before making a decision.
How much does a sports car cost?
To answer this question, first of all it is necessary to specify that the price of a sports car depends particularly on the make of car. Indeed, the purchase of a Porsche Boxster will cost you around 10,000 euros, while for a Subaru Impreza, you can get one starting at 5,000 euros (used price). All this to show that it’s above all the notoriety and prestige of a brand that changes the price of a car. But generally speaking, for a second-hand sports car purchase, you can get a small sports car starting at 3,000 euros. High-performance vehicles, on the other hand, can be priced up to 20,000 euros.
Things to check during the test drive
You should also know that the more powerful, fast and coupled a car is, the heavier it will be. Thus, it will wear out certain parts more quickly. In this case, you will have to be uncompromising during the purchase and check these parts thoroughly.
To begin with, the part that wears out the most often for sports cars is the brakes. If you buy a used car, take a good look at the condition of the brake pads through the rims. If you buy a new sports car, remember to give your brakes very regular maintenance. During the test drive, also check the condition of the clutch discs so that you don’t have to pay a lot of money once you buy the car.
