In this crazy world of collector’s cars, prices are going through the roof with records broken seemingly every auction. The well-known models are highly sought-after and demand overwhelms the supply. Many exotic and/or muscle cars command extreme prices. For example, million-dollar Hemi Cudas are no exception; they are the new standard of the industry. So, what do drivers do if they have an irresistible urge for an exotic machine but they don’t have the required million-dollar budget?
If that sounds like you, we have a wide selection of exciting machinery just for you. These range from well-known brands to complete obscurities and from brand-new cars to forgotten classics. Here you’ll find exotic cars that can fit any budget and any taste. The best thing about this eclectic mix of vehicles is that all of them are great conversation starters. Some are fast and some are not, but all are rare, cool, and unusual exotic cars.
Ferrari 456 GT
If you’re looking for the most car for your money or you want a Ferrari for a reasonable price, then the 456 GT is for you. Introduced in 1992 in Europe and in 1995 in America, the 456 GT combines classic proportions, a V12 engine, and full comfort for four adults. Thanks to a 5.5-liter V12 engine with 442 HP on tap, the 456 GT is still a fast machine and can outrun some younger cars. Ferrari offered the option of an automatic gearbox for buyers who don’t want to shift gears. Those examples are more affordable than the six-speed manuals (via Ferrari).
The 456 GT stayed in production until 2003. Ferrari made over 3200 examples of this wonderful and understated GT cruiser. Despite costing almost $300,000 in the mid-’90s, a decent 456 GT is around $80,000 today with the best examples going for just over $90,000. Of course, this is a decent sum for any car enthusiast, but considering the features, power, and design of this elegant cruiser, it’s well worth it.
