Dream cars are meant for bedroom wall posters, right? Well, that’s not always the case, as on occasions you can get the car of your dreams for a reasonable sum of money.
We’ve plucked an arbitrary budget of £50,000 and found ten of the very best ‘dream cars’ that you could realistically buy. Although you’d need to bear in mind that your running costs are still going to be much higher than the average family runabout.

Audi’s original R8 broke the mould when it came to supercars, because it was one you could actually use day in, day out.
Rock-solid build quality paired with good looks and an inspiring drive meant that the R8 was immensely popular when it was first released – and there are now plenty of used examples of the first-generation model to choose from.
At this price point, you’ll be able to get your hands on either the 4.2-litre V8 (shown above) or the full-fat 5.2-litre V10-powered version. Definitely look out for an example with the gated six-speed manual gearbox, which is much better than the semi-automatic paddle-shift unit.
