If you're looking for a fun British sports car, you don't necessarily have to go all the way back to an MG, a Triumph or an Austin-Healey to get your kicks. Instead, there are many exciting modern British sports cars on the market -- and I've listed five of the best and most thrilling British sports cars currently listed for sale on Autotrader.

1988 Aston Martin V8 Vantage - $429,000

1988 Aston Martin V8 Vantage - $429,000

This is an ultra-rare 1988 Aston Martin V8 Vantage, which precedes the DB7 in Aston's long history. This particular example is a rare "widebody" model that the seller says is one of just 58 originally made for the U.S. market -- and the seller notes that the same owner has had it in Arizona for the last 20 years. It's currently listed by Motorgroup LLC in Scottsdale, Arizona, with 15,000 miles and a manual transmission for $429,000 -- big money for a special car.

2005 Jaguar XKR - $38,500

2005 Jaguar XKR - $38,500

The 1997-2005 Jaguar "XK" model is hard to find in nice shape these days -- especially if you're looking for a coupe, as most are convertibles, or if you're trying to find the high-performance "XKR" model. This particular example is an XKR Coupe finished in a rare Jaguar Racing Green, and it's in pristine condition with just 38,200 miles. It's offered by a private seller in Bradenton, Florida, for $38,500.

2017 Jaguar F-Type Coupe - $38,500

2017 Jaguar F-Type Coupe - $38,500

Although the Jaguar F-Type is hardly a rare or particularly special British car, certain versions of the F-Type are more exciting than others -- and that includes this car, as it features a rare 6-speed manual transmission. More importantly, it's surprisingly cheap, as it's priced at just $38,500, despite traveling just 10,500 miles from new. It's offered by Hennessey Jaguar Land Rover Buckhead in Atlanta, Georgia and it's finished in black with a black interior.

2012 McLaren MP4-12C - $109,500

2012 McLaren MP4-12C - $109,500

The McLaren MP4-12C may be more "supercar" than "sports car," but it's still an excellent, thrilling British 2-seater -- and this one is surprisingly cheap, with an asking price of just $109,500. That's an excellent price considering this car's immense performance -- and while reliability may be a question for some shoppers, it's worth noting that this one has traveled an impressive 21,200 miles already. It's offered by Motorcars of Georgia, the McLaren dealership in the Atlanta area.

2013 Mini Cooper Roadster JCW - $16,995

2013 Mini Cooper Roadster JCW - $16,995

Although the Mini Cooper Roadster is an occasionally forgotten British sports car, it's certain a British sports car nonetheless -- especially in John Cooper Works guise, with 210 horsepower, ultra-sharp handling and a 0-to-60 mile per hour time in the 6.5-second range. These are more fun than standard Mini Cooper models -- a feat that's hard to accomplish -- and this particular example is offered by Orlando Mini with 43,000 miles and a 6-speed manual transmission for $16,995.
