When it comes to high-performance European cars, most enthusiasts know to be a bit wary. After all, European cars are expensive to buy, and they can be expensive to own -- and that goes double for high-performance European cars, which add extra-pricey bits and tuning from the automaker. Fortunately, there's CPO, or "certified pre-owned," which is a longer factory warranty on a used vehicle -- usually one that comes with a substantial discount. These are five of my favorite CPO European car deals currently available on Autotrader.

2015 Audi RS 5 - $47,981

Audi's certified pre-owned warranty offers one year of additional coverage following the completion of the factory warranty, with no mileage limit -- and you can buy additional years of coverage at an extra cost. The RS 5, meanwhile, offers a monstrous 450 horsepower and runs from zero to 60 in 4.4 seconds. While a new RS 5 starts at more than $70,000 and goes up considerably with options, this well-equipped certified pre-owned example is available at Audi West Houston in the Houston area with 34,000 miles for $47,981.

2015 BMW M5 - $56,984

The BMW M5 is one of the most desirable high-performance sport sedans of the modern era, and this particular M5 is especially appealing -- in part due to BMW's CPO warranty (which adds a year of coverage to the factory warranty with no mileage limit), and in part due to its reasonable price tag, as this one is offered by BMW Stevens Creek in the San Francisco Bay Area with 30,500 miles for $56,984.

2014 Jaguar F-TYPE V8 S - $53,989

Although the Jaguar F-TYPE's trim levels have gone through several name changes, this particular example -- the V8 S -- is special no matter what you call it. It has a 495-hp supercharged V8, it rockets to 60 mph in under 4 seconds, and the sound is tremendously mean. Jaguar's CPO program is icing on the cake, as it covers vehicles for 7 years or 100,000 miles from new, meaning this CPO F-TYPE still has several years of warranty left -- and it's a bargain, with just 12,225 miles and a $53,989 asking price from Red Noland Automotive Group in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

2014 Mercedes-Benz GL 63 AMG - $60,988

The Mercedes-Benz GL 63 AMG is one of my favorite SUVs, largely because it's so ridiculous: it's a 3-row family hauler with a raucous 550 hp and 560 lb-ft of torque. While a new GL 63 (now called the GLS 63) is a $100,000-plus vehicle, this certified pre-owned 2014 model is offered with 42,000 miles for just $60,988 by Mercedes-Benz of Greenwich. Mercedes-Benz's CPO warranty is appealing, as it touts one year of bumper-to-bumper coverage with no mileage limit, tacked on to the initial factory warranty -- and it can be extended for an extra cost.

2012 Porsche 911 Carrera S Coupe - $64,000

Porsche's certified pre-owned program offers excellent terms, boasting 2 years of coverage with no mileage limit, added on to the original warranty -- or from the purchase date, if the car in question is out of warranty when it's purchased. This 2012 911 Carrera S is especially appealing, as it's listed for just $64,000 with Porsche's CPO warranty -- a huge discount from new, despite its modern body style and just 43,000 miles. It's offered by Paul Miller Porsche in Northern New Jersey.
