Casper: You Can Realistically Be A ‘Baller On A Budget’
If you have ever seen a recent Hip-Hop (and here lately, even Country) music videos, you've probably seen a plethora of $100K and up luxury vehicles laced throughout the productions. What you may not know is some of the same slightly used models are available at a third of the cost and fairly close to us.
After seeing a beautiful Bentley coupe in the parking lot of the Eastridge Mall yesterday, I was instantly reminded how much I wanted one of these very expensive modes of transportation. I immediately put the thought of ever owning something like that in the back of my mind as nothing more than a mere pipe dream, until a friend assured me that my dream could be a reality with much less capital than I had originally thought. There are quite a few of these vehicles for sale in the neighboring Denver area.
After doing a quick search on Craigslist, a half a dozen of these glamorous automobiles showed up at price ranges from $30,000 to $60,000. Again, the average cost for a brand new Bentley runs anywhere from $150,000 to $335,000.
The 2005 Bentley Continental GT pictured below is 552 horses of all-wheel drive that goes from zero to sixty in under five seconds! Forget the speed, I was excited after I saw all-wheel drive! You could actually drive it year round in Wyoming!
