It’s not very often that we find fun ways of choosing stuff, but I’ve just found the best way to choose your new car.
Finding your new car can be a nightmare, constant searching on loads of different websites, but ultimately you just want to look like an absolute boss for the best price, am I right?
You might think Autotrader is for your parents, but they’ve just made leasing easy and fun with a little game of ‘Drive Like The Stars’.
For example, you could get the same Range Rover Evoque as Victoria Beckham for just £360 a month! £360 a month! Just to put that into perspective, for the same price as your car loan on something that’s only going to devalue in a couple of years anyway, you could get a Range Rover Evoque (!) and you can change it in two to four years.
Either way, this is the most fun way I’ve ever managed to convince myself that I can drive around like a celeb. If I’m not spending as much money on nights out and holidays abroad, then I’m spending it on staring at my amazing car on the driveway all day!
So, what cars do the celebs have and how much have they spent on their cars?
