Five very different cars for sale to tempt you into owning something special

Here’s your weekly dose of the weird and wonderful finds on TradeUniqueCars.com.au.

You know the drill by now, so let’s get to it.

2016 Ford GT40 (classic replica) - $395,000

No, it’s not original. But if it was, would you drive it? Would you be able to even afford it? We wouldn’t be able to, that’s for sure.

At $395,000 this replica by Chris Hines is fitted with a custom V8, manual 6-speed, and was only built in 2016.

It’s located at Lorbek in Port Melbourne so bring it by the MOTOR office if you find yourself becoming the new owner of this beast.

2013 Subaru WRX RS40 - $32,990

A relatively rare Rex, the RS40 is the last of its generation.

This one’s sporting a 95,644km figure on the odometer, which is a fair bit of travelling for a 5-year-old car, but it’s one of only 300 (number 75, to be exact) and seems to be well cared for.

It’s also unmistakably ‘Subie’ with the blue-and-gold colour scheme. $32,990 will make it yours.

Subaru WRX Celebration: 3rd Generation

1999 Lamborghini Diablo SV - $489,990

This is one-of-two RHD SVs in the world, so it doesn’t get much rarer than that.

Locally, this is the only one around, so getting your hands on it means visiting Dutton Garage in Richmond with a $489,990 cheque-in-hand.

If you want to find out more about this car, we’ve actually written about it in the past. We can attest to its ability to increase in value, too. Back then, it was worth $419,990.

New vs Used: Lambo Diablo v Lambo Huracan

1993 Rover Mini Cooper S - $19,888

Okay… we had to.

Sure, this car – or colour – might not be for everyone (the latter isn’t this author’s cup of tea), but seeing it pop up was quite the surprise.

One way to gather turning heads is to own a classic Mini, so the colour seems like overkill. It’s selling for $19,888, with 56,843(km, we assume, as it’s a JDM model) showing.

Comparsion review: 2016 MINI JCW v 1965 Mini Cooper 1275 S

2017 BMW M4 DTM Championship Edition - $309,990

Another rare pick from Dutton, this time a German. It’s a limited edition (one of 200, and only 10 in Australia) DTM Champion featuring the unique decals and styling.

It’s also got the arsenal of the M4 GTS at its disposal, good for 368kW and 600Nm, as well as racing seats and plenty of carbon fibre.

Dutton is asking $309,990, slightly north of its original $295,000 asking price.
