If you’re anything like us, you’ll find the idea of a bargain-basement luxury barge endlessly enthralling.
It isn’t hard to see why. They’re cars that were once available to the select few but are now within the grasp of mere mortals like us. They are sometimes little more than a few years old, often still equipped with the latest technology and, crucially, usually available for a fraction of their original price.
So what if they cost a bit more than your usual hatchback to run? The fact they are near the bottom of their depreciation curve and about to bounce back again should more than make up for that.
Flick through our gallery above for top luxury picks that'll let you live the champagne lifestyle – even if you only have beer money to spend.
