Here Are the Coolest Luxury Cars on Autotrader Available for the Price of a Camry

As you already know, most luxury cars tend to lose value pretty considerably over time — largely due to aging technology, shiny (and desirable) new models and potentially high maintenance and repair costs. So here are a few cool high-end luxury cars you can buy on Autotrader for the price of a Toyota Camry — though I can’t promise that ownership costs will be anywhere near the same.

2011 Audi A8 L – $27,998

The Audi A8 is known to depreciate especially quickly, and this 7-year-old A8 L has certainly taken a big hit, as its original MSRP was likely well over $100,000. Now it’s available with 48,000 miles from Texas Auto in Houston for just $27,998 — literally a fraction of that original price. It’s finished in black, with a beige interior that includes a lot of features, options and high-end touches — plus an enormous amount of rear-seat room, given it’s the long-wheelbase “L” model.

1990 Bentley Turbo R – $28,000

If you want to go old-school, this Bentley Turbo R is surprisingly cheap. Offered by Novak Motors on Long Island, this Turbo R is a 1990 model with just 31,000 miles — and it’s listed for $28,000, which definitely places it in Toyota Camry territory. It’s finished in white with chrome wheels, and it features Bentley’s turbocharged V8, which made this the “performance” version of Bentley’s full-size sedan lineup back in 1990.

2013 Cadillac Escalade – $27,995

The Cadillac Escalade is, of course, a full-size luxury SUV with a design that screams “attitude” — and, as a result, the Escalade has been a highly popular new and used vehicle. This particular Escalade hails from the SUV’s previous-generation body style, but it’s a high-end Luxury model with a lot of equipment and huge factory wheels. It’s offered by AMG Auto in northern New Jersey for $27,995 with around 96,000 miles.

2008 Mercedes-Benz CL 600 – $26,995

The Mercedes-Benz CL600 was the brand’s flagship luxury coupe, based on the S-Class sedan and featuring a huge, luxurious interior. The “600” model in particular is special, as it features a massive turbocharged V12 engine with endless torque — and a long list of equipment. Ten years after this CL600 was sold new, it’s offered with 58,800 miles for $26,995 by Hendrick Motors in Charlotte — one-fifth of its original price.

2012 Range Rover – $30,000

The Range Rover is an icon of the luxury-vehicle world; the original high-end luxury SUV, and still considered the best by many. This 2012 Range Rover is a supercharged model, which means it has a 500-horsepower V8 — and even though it hails from the SUV’s prior generation, it still offers modern technology and a handsome interior and exterior design. This Range Rover is offered by Rosenthal Jaguar Land Rover in the D.C. suburbs with 86,000 miles for $30,000.

  1. I love the L322 Range Rovers, particularly the ones from 2003-2005 with BMW guts. They’re easy to work on, can be found stupid cheap (I bought one for $3k a year ago), parts costs are reasonable since you can buy BMW aftermarket parts for a lot of them, and with some headlight and bumper changes, can look much newer than they actually are. People always thought I had a lot of money when I had my 2004 Range Rover, but in reality I was just a broke 20-something with some tools and a whole bunch of free time to fix stuff.
