You could be driving a supercar for less than you think; those are the findings of our 'supercheap supercars' feature, published in today's magazine.

We conducted a special investigation including Aston Martin, Bentley, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati, Mercedes and Porsche dealers. At all of them we met the same conclusion - that serious buyers shouldn't be deterred by six-figure forecourt tags.

Our results show that, at every stop we made, there are startlingly affordable real-world purchasing options to be had. Among them was the Mercedes SL500 pictured; a £71,500 car available for the price of a compact executive saloon and a new suit every month.

To find out how much ownership of other dream metal really costs, Ferrari's 360 Modena, Lamborghini's Gallardo and Bentley's Continental GT included, get this week's Autocar.
