Falcon AU XR8; Lamborghini Aventador; Chaser Tourer V and more: Classifieds of the week

What could be better than window shopping for supercars and potential financial disasters?

Five cars, all very different from each other, and all for sale in Australia right now.

Here are the car ads we think are worth some attention (for better or worse) this week, thanks to Tradeuniquecars.com.au.

2017 Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 Superveloce - $1,295,000

How do you ditch over a million dollars, access 552kW/690Nm, draw a lot of attention to yourself and also add more of the colour orange to your life?

This. This is how. It’s only been driven 175km, and has 12 Italian cylinders waiting for your right-footed commands.

2000 Ford Falcon XR8 AU11 – $11,250

Or, you can forget all about the Lambo, and own one of the greatest design marvels of the last few decades.

If you feel like spending around eleven big ones on what has become a literal internet meme, the AU XR8 is for you.

This one has also been photographed lovingly, with ‘portrait’ being the orientation of choice for this avid photographer. At least the car’s only sporting 119,000 on the odo.

2001 Toyota Chaser Tourer V - $29,990

Okay, so a 1JZ sounds like half the engine the 2JZ is, but that’s not really the case. Even after 17 years this Chaser’s donk should still be sporting close to 200kW, if it’s been well looked after.

If you want to take it back to its former 206kW glory, the straight six should only need a few tweaks.

1997 Lotus Esprit V8 - POA

Bond looks and a Brit V8? It sounds like a stylish disaster waiting to happen, but if you can’t help yourself this Esprit is waiting its next brave owner.

Well looked after, and it should repay its price in smiles. If it has a rough history, you’ll have a rough future.

1987 AC Cobra Autokraft Mk.IV - POA

Last on the list is this kit-car built with approval from AC. It’s a light alloy body built around a dirty big 427 Cobra V8.

It also only has 27234km on the odo, but its ‘POA’ tag is ominous.
