August 25, 2015

Many of us dream of the day we can climb behind the wheel of our perfect car. At the Car Loan Warehouse, we’re all about the thrills – and there’s nothing we love more than a road trip through the Automotive Hall of Fame. Whether your perfect car is a Lamborghini or a Porsche, a Rolls or a Ferrari, we think you should dream big – and in today’s post, we’re bringing you some of the best cars to drive before you die.

So whether you’re looking for inspiration for your bucket list or just fancy checking out some sensational rides, dive into today’s Top 5 Tuesdays to see what we’ve got lined up.

Ford Mustang

Now available in the UK, the all-American Ford Mustang is more accessible than ever. This cheeky convertible comes with bags of character and is the last word in style. Kitted with the 312bhp 2.3 litre EcoBoost petrol engine, the Mustang sprints from 0-62mph in a scorching 5.8 seconds and can reach speeds of 145mph.

Our American cousins have produced some of the best cars on the road – and if you’ve got a spare £34k, you could be driving one of them.

VW Type 2 Camper

If you’re a lover of all things vintage, a VW Type 2 Camper should be at the top of your list of cars to drive before you die. In production between 1968-1979, the Type 2 is a classic family car and the perfect camping companion.

Available in an array of eye-catching colours, the Type 2 Camper was a staple of the swinging 60s and continues to be a much-loved part of Germany’s motoring history. Prices vary dramatically for a Type 2 Camper – but if you don’t want to part with the best part of £20,000, you can hire one of these charming campers at a fraction of the cost.

Rolls Royce Silver Spur

Renowned for being quintessentially British, Rolls Royce is a brand that epitomises class. Production may have ended in 1995, but the Silver Spur is still causing a stir in the motoring sphere.

Despite the saloon’s length, this Rolls has an impressive 0-62mph time of 10 seconds and a top speed of 125mph. You could get your hands on a second hand Spur from as little as £14,500 – but we all know you can’t put a price on true class.

Porsche Boxster Spyder

Famous for its lightweight design and sexy styling, the Porsche Boxster Spyder has bags of appeal – and is right up there with the best cars to drive before you die. With its responsive steering and ability to blaze from 0-62mph in an eye-watering 4.5 seconds, this racy roadster has thrills built right in.

With the 2015 Boxster Spyder coming in at just over £60k, you’ll need more than small change to become the proud owner of this Porsche.

Lamborghini Aventador

If you’re a petrolhead with a need for speed, the Lamborghini Aventador is one of the best cars to drive – with incomparable handling, performance and style. Thanks to its V12 engine, the Aventador coupe reaches speeds that few cars can live up to, storming from 0-62mph in under 3 seconds.

The Lambo’s classic scissor doors only add to its appeal (although parking will be interesting) – and if you take this ride along for your weekly shop, you’ll be guaranteed to turn heads! Speeding in at just under a quarter of a million pounds, you’ll need a celebrity income to match this motor’s price tag.

If today’s lineup has you excited about buying your next car, we want to help. At the Car Loan Warehouse, we provide car finance to suit any make, model and budget – to make buying your next car a breeze.
