cool cars come in all shapes and sizes. The good news is, cool cars also come at all different prices. You don’t need a million bucks to own a cool car since there are lots of choices at all different price points. Here, I’ve found a bunch of examples ranging from cool old cars to muscle cars to every day super cars.
This is not a comprehensive list of all the cool cars out there, of course, but rather a starting point for discussion. Feel free to chime in the comments section with your own picks for cool cars at each price point.
2013 Fiat 500 Abarth: $9,499 – $11,999
The Fiat 500 Abarth is a car with a ton of personality that you can easily find for under $15,000. This zippy little hatchback is the perfect car for the city dweller: they’re quick, peppy and a ton of fun to drive, which means you don’t have to spend Ferrari money to get a cool Italian car with a unique driving experience. This little spitfire is powered with a turbocharged 1.4-liter engine that’s constantly barking an aggressive exhaust note as its soundtrack.
Plus, Abarth vehicles are more rare, which ups the cool factor. And you’ll have no trouble finding this one in the parking lot; its small-but-aggressive look sets it apart from other commuter cars. New, the Fiat 500 Abarth cars are under $30,000—which means a lightly used model will set you back much less. I found several examples of this cool car for under $15,000.
