The talk of M town is the new BMW M5 CS.
It is the most powerful M car ever produced, it weighs 70kg less than its already lightweight predecessor, and it’s beautiful.
The price for the car in South Africa has not been officially revealed, but is expected to be well over R3 million – thanks to its German price tag of €180,400.
If you are not a fan of the new M5 CS, however, we have good news – there are many excellent second-hand cars in the R3,000,000 to R4,000,000 price bracket which will give you just as many thrills.
We have picked the best options and listed them below.
The Ferrari F12 Berlinetta was introduced in 2012 as the flagship V12 for the brand.
It produces 545kW of power and 690Nm of torque, and accelerates from 0-100km/h in 3.1 seconds.
Comfortability was not high up on the F12 checklist, as it only has two seats, a driver-centric cabin, and an extremely hard suspension in order to put it ahead of all the competition in terms of performance.
The model here is in Rosso red with black interior, has 32,000km on the clock, and costs R3,799,950.
A seriously track-focused sports car with a racing pedigree like few others comes to us in the form of the Porsche 911 GT3 RS.
This car arrives from the factory pre-installed with a roll cage, fabric straps as door handles, and a laminated sticker for its Porsche badge.
It was built to be a track demon with a 4.0-litre engine which generates 368kW and 460Nm, a total weight of 1,430kg, and a 0-100km/h time of 3.3 seconds.
The subject of today is a Lizard Green 991.2 GT3 RS,with 3,300km on the clock, and a price tag of R3,795,000.
Who better to look at for luxury vehicles than Rolls-Royce.
In 2010, they introduced the first generation of the Ghost – which slots in as the entry-level model for the brand.
There is nothing “entry-level” about this car, though, as its interior is filled to the brim with premium materials and technology.
It also has a hefty 6.6-litre engine which produces 420kW.
The example we are looking at today has a 0-100km/h time of under 5 seconds, a red leather interior, and a price tag of R3,399,000.
When it comes to luxury, Bentley has always been a top player and recently started to mix in a little sportiness with its cars.
The Continental SuperSports makes light work of any acceleration times with its 6.0-litre, 522kW engine – and it will take you there in a diamond stitched, leather clad, carbon covered interior.
The model featured here will cost you R3,595,000.
This is the best that Land Rover has to offer.
It boasts unequalled off-roading capabilities, and as s Top Gear explains: “It’s basically a Bentley crossed with the off-road ability of a tractor.”
It is also treated to the newest and best technologies that the company has at its disposal, including a dual-touchscreen infotainment system as well as soft-close doors.
The Vogue in question is fitted with a 5.0-litre supercharged engine, 22-inch alloy wheels, and an asking price of R3,138,262.
An Edition 1 differentiates itself by offering options that the standard vehicles do not have access to.
Essentially, it’s the way that Mercedes-Benz would spec an AMG G63, if Mercedes-Benz was to buy one.
It offers heaps of power, delivered by a 4.0-litre turbocharged engine, and it can climb inclines up to 45 degrees.
The newest generation was unveiled in 2018, and upgraded almost every single aspect of its predecessor while maintaining the signature G-Class door closing sound.
The Edition 1 we’re looking at is painted in Designo Platinum Magno, has 29,500km on the clock, and costs R3,349,000.
This is the V12 poster car of the 80s and 90s.
A Rosso Corsa Testarossa with a cream leather interior and those large slats on the side is what vintage dreams are made of – while a 4.9-litre flat 12 engine provides 283kW and a melodious soundtrack few could ignore.
What makes this Ferrari such a sight to behold – and an honour to own – is the road presence that it brings, along with an iconic history of being at the head of the world’s premiere car brand in the 90s.
A perfect example comes to us in the form of a Cape Town-bound, low kilometre coupé that has an asking price of R3,450,000.
American muscle is hard to find in South Africa, especially if you want something that is in good condition.
As the Dodge Charger R/T is arguably one of the most well-known and best-looking muscle cars out there, it comes as no surprise that this is our pick to park in your reserved garage spot.
Its production was inspired by the Nascar Daytona 500 series, and – after it rolled off the line – it dominated the leaderboards.
The car in question is fitted with a massive engine, a huge bonnet scoop, and it will cost you R3,199,950.
