Buy them before we do: second-hand picks for 28 September


Yet the Audi franchise selling the car is asking just £18,362 for it – a hefty saving over the £23,000-odd a brand-new example would cost you. What’s more, you don’t have to wait for it as you would with a new car. You can walk in off the street and drive it away. Not bad for a car that, despite its age, remains one of the smartest and most desirable premium hatchbacks out there.

BMW 645Ci £5995

That styling is still controversial, but the second-generation 6 Series’ looks certainly appear to have mellowed with time. Or is it familiarity? Either way, you can’t fault a proper BMW grand tourer with a thumping 328bhp V8 petrol engine – especially at less than six grand.

Maserati GranTurismo £24,990

If you fancy a grand tourer with a bit of Italian panache, you’ll have to pay a little more. This Granturismo’s £24,990 price shows values are still pretty firm, but otherwise it looks just the ticket in silver over red and with a full year’s MOT. No mention of history, mind, which is a concern.

Peugeot 205 1.6 GTi £4995

Proof that there are still sensibly priced 1980s classics to be had comes in the form of this Peugeot 1.6 205 GTi. It features a folder of history and a fresh MOT, and it looks to be in good, if not immaculate, nick, meaning you won’t be afraid to use it.
