These 5 Supercars are Dropping in Value. Buy Them Now!

If you’re into cars, then you have probably dreamt of owning a supercar at some point in your life. Whether you’ve posted a picture of a Nissan GT-R on your wall or perhaps saved a Jaguar F-Type as your desktop wallpaper, you’ve been there. You have been to that dream land where your garage is filled with the fastest and most beautiful supercars that you can imagine.

Luckily, thanks to depreciation, that dream garage can now become a reality. A lot of supercars depreciate quickly after a few years and now is a great time to pick one up if you have the means. Here are five supercars with depreciated prices that you should buy now.

Mercedes-Benz AMG GT

As a worthy rival to cars like the Porsche 911 Carrera S, Jaguar F-Type R, and the Audi R8 V10, the Mercedes-Benz AMG GT has utilized its sleek and subtle styling as well as its powerful twin-turbo V8 engine to lure supercars buyers away from those other nameplates. It’s done well in that regard since its inception in 2016, however, it was always just slightly unobtainable due to its $130,000 starting price tag.

Fortunately, you can now find a 2016 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT nationwide for around half the price of its original value and if $70,000 still sounds like a lot, then just keep in mind what you will get for that price. For starters, you’ll get 456 hp in the GT (503 in the GT S) and 0 to 60 mph times in the sub-four-second range, according to Car and Driver. Now that’s performance you can bank on, and thankfully, your bank account won’t be completely empty.

BMW i8

The BMW i8 has been turning heads since its inception back in 2014 and it will likely do so as long it roams the streets. With futuristics looks that make it seem like it’s straight out of a science fiction movie as well as some stout performance numbers that are un-supercar-like but get the job done, the i8 was worthy of its $147,000 original MSRP. However, you can now find plenty of BMW i8s with selling prices in the $55,000, which is a fraction of its original value. That could the deal of the century.

Nissan GT-R

Who wouldn’t want a Nissan GT-R? Considering its legendary status in the tuner world, along with its ability to go toe-to-toe with cars in a higher performance and price bracket, the GT-R has also been something of an “unsung hero” in the supercar world.

It pumps out 480 horsepower and can get to 60 mph in less than three seconds, which Nissan has continues to improve on year after year. And while the automaker has been steadily increasing the price of the GT-R as it has continued to improve it, you can find an older 2009 to 2012 for around $55,000 to $60,000, which is far less than what a new one costs.

Jaguar F-Type R

With a supercharged V8 engine that produces 550 horsepower and enough lateral grip to produce 1.0g on the skidpad, according to Car and Driver’s testing, the Jaguar F-Type R has been a formidable contender in the supercar realm since it debuted in 2015. Back then, it carried a price tag that was fitting of its superb performance and north of the $100,000 mark. But now, you can easily find a 2015 Jaguar F-Type R selling for around $40,000 to $55,000, which is a steal considering what you get for the money.

Bentley Continental GT

If you like your supercars to be more serene and substantial, then you might want to track down a Bentley Continental GT. The newer ones are still carrying a massive price tag well over $100,000, but if you’re willing to go way back to the 2005 model year, then you can likely find one for around $40,000.

For that kind of money, you’ll get a stately, yet visceral driving experience that’s led by a massive 6.0-liter V12 engine that produces 552 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque. But even if you don’t care about performance, then at the very least, you’ll be driving a Bentley.
