In terms of buying prestige cars, there seems to be a completely different attitude to the used market than cars with less prominent badges.
The buying public are generally slightly more wary of buying a used Nissan Micra as opposed to a Used Bentley. The obvious reason for this rather polar attitude change is one of quality. Prestige cars like Bentleys and their other luxurious cohorts are celebrated and exalted as triumphs of design and engineering, becoming much more than a runabout or a solution of how to get from A to B.
This is primarily because when you buy a prestige car what you are effectively doing is making an investment. Used prestige cars are not really meant for the daily commute down the motorway, or ideal for doing the weekly shop. They are to be treasured and only taken out for special events.
Although it may seem like an awful shame to see a wonderfully designed and engineered automobile spend the majority of its working life covered by a dustsheet in somebody’s garage, this is the role they are made for.
Let’s be honest about this; prestige cars are in no way practical. If you decided to use one to do the weekly shop or take the kids to school every day, then you would probably become very frustrated with the lack of manoeuvrability and the sheer cost of petrol.
If you are considering buying a used prestige car then I can recommend no car finer than the Used Bentley Continental GT Coupe, which will provide you with sporty, yet classy driving experiences.
