CASH AL­TER­NA­TIVES

Autocar - - USED CARS -

If the idea of bor­row­ing a big lump of money and stick­ing ev­ery penny of it into a per­for­mance car that will cost yet more money to run sounds to you like mad­ness, there are other op­tions. You could squir­rel £100 aside each week un­til you have enough to buy a car with­out the need to bor­row a penny, while adding to a slush fund for run­ning costs. Af­ter two years you’d have £10,400 to your name and a wide choice of de­sir­able metal within reach.

Al­ter­na­tively, you could lease a brand new car and drive with to­tal peace of mind (al­though come the end of the lease term you won’t own any­thing at all). The Honda Civic Type R, Abarth 124 Spi­der, BMW M140i and Seat Leon Cupra 290 are all within bud­get on 48-month terms with around £3000 paid up­front.
