The new Lotus Exige Sport 350 looks like it will compete well with the Porsche Cayman GT4 from a performance stand point. Where the GT4 provides a higher top speed and more luxury, the Exige Sport 350 offers a much quicker and even more focused ride.

As is usual with a Lotus the weight is about the same as a postage stamp which allows it to do more with less power. They are also one of the few companies that asks if each piece of the car is necessary and if it isn’t they usually get rid of it.

Top 5 Affordable Lamborghinis

By   March 27, 2014

Lamborghini Huracán

At About $200,000 the Lamborghini Huracán is Currently the Company’s Most Affordable Car

Is there such thing as an affordable Lamborghini? After all you can find some decent older Ferraris for $30,000 or less and you can find plenty of nice Porsches for under $15,000, but what of the “Raging Bull”?

Once it is released to the public the Lamborghini Huracán will cost about $200,000 and it will be the most affordable car in the lineup. To see if you could buy an older Lamborghini for a decent price, we did some digging and below at the best values that we found.

  1. Lamborghini 350 GT- The 350 GT was the first car produced by the Italian sports car maker. It wasn’t that long ago that these early cars could be had for $40,000 in very good condition, but the market has raised in recent years with good cars costing around $120,000. If you look very hard you can find them for around $80,000, but be careful as restoration can be very costly.
  2. Lamborghini Espada 400 GT – the Edpada 400 GT isn’t the best loved of the cars from the Italian company. When you look at the styling it looks a bit like a fast-back Ford Mustang, but the engine did produce over 300 horsepower in the ’70s which isn’t bad (although it seems like over 600 horsepower will soon be the norm on modern performance cars). You can find them for around $40,000, but try to find one that has been cared for.
  3. Lamborghini Jarama GT – Is a Lamborghini model that is often forgotten about. The styling is very ’70s and it has ’60s Corvette Sting Ray style popup lights. While a few have sold for over $100,000, those cars had an impressive history and appear to be the outliers. So, if you look around you can often find them going for around $35,000.
  4. Lamborghini P250 Urraco – The P250 Urraco is one of those 70’s sports cars that looks very much like it belongs in the era. They are often overlooked by the pure and wild supercars of the company, so if you look around you can find them for around $30,000 for a good one.
  5. Kit Car – OK, so it isn’t really a Lamborghini, but you can get a kit car that looks like a newer car than the above mentioned. Something like a Diablo is very common. These will usually run you around $20,000 for a good used one, but be careful for poor workmanship. The big advantage to the kit car is that it will usually be based on something like a Pontiac Fiero and the parts tend to cost quite a bit less.

So, there you have it. Affordable Lamborghinis do exist if you know what to look for and take your time. Just remember that restoring or repairing one of these cars will be very expensive, so be a picky buyer and save a lot of money for repairs.
