    1. NamesGhost

      these guys should host top gear

    2. Astrylix

      I love the audi R8

    3. Aku2Dimensional

      I don't watch your videos, I just wanted to comment on the thumbnail of this video to say that if I had money to burn I certainly would never want to purchase the La Ferravette abomination. That thing is so unoriginal in design that each one deserves a special place in the landfill, the very thought of recycling it in a scrapyard is far too rewarding. If I had won a Ferravette in a raffle I would immediately dump it, carve it up and throw it in the bin. The SSR was the ugliest Chevrolet in existence but it wasn't a vulgar and tasteless Ferrari copy.

    4. Billy Wuzhere

      Omaze gives a vette with extra money to spend... who else heard the word turbo in his head as soon as he said that? 🤣

    5. Where's the miata?

      The mk3 MR2 is very underated

    6. Lee Spurkla

      That mint two with 23k on the clock would fetch about 7-8k the good low milers have gone up considerably in the last yr

    7. The cooking apple

      Why does everyone think that the mr2 mk3 is ugly, I love the styling of it personally

    8. Viktor Repa

      80k£ in UK and 60k$ in USA, wait, what?!...


      I know where my money would be on the type r.The Audi will let you down for sure. Another plug for VAG products by another car review channel.

    10. Liam 2208

      The r8 has been my favourite car since the 2013 one came out I also got to Rev a 2016 v10 plus at a fair

    11. Dingus Tardo

      Interesting title given that the C8 vette costs the equivalent of 43,000 sterling in the US; Import fees are rough i suppose. Really wish american cars were more affordable overseas and consequently more accessible

    12. Make it Nice

      Checks used r8s here in America, no where near as close in price ! Used cars are worth a lot more here unfortunately 😕

    13. guitarb26

      I don’t really care too much for the new Corvette, if I’m being honest. They went to all that trouble & probably spent a lot of money redesigning pretty much the entire car.. & then they just threw in an engine from the early 1900s.

    14. Manuel Silva

      I remember Jeremy Clarkson reviewing a Audi R8 and even a Corvette. I'd take the C6 Corvette ZR1, one of the best body styles and it's around $50k.

    15. ResidentRumDrinker

      sadly with the MR2, the tax on that older engine will make up any reduction on insurance over the R8

    16. Sharzalion Sand'Oria

      MR2 all the way

    17. vG hi im Hitiv

      Mr2 0-60 in less than 7 seconds😂😂😂, where did you get that from

      1. KO GOAT

        I've done under 6.5 seconds in my stock one. I have proof

    18. BASIT Fixes

      the old mr2 is the real ride and a dream which i will never be able to full fill

    19. BASIT Fixes

      mr2 is cheap alternative to Porsche boxer

    20. Jamie Parker

      I'd take the R8, guy I know has 2 first gens as he couldn't decide on white or black so bought both and still has them in his collection

    21. Lost Boi

      I never thought a Corvette could look so sexy!

    22. HCProductions

      The sit on is a decent little runner for going down the M1

    23. slybunda

      which car is still running after 20 years?

    24. B3HN

      Been looking at getting a V8 R8 lately

    25. Steven Brown

      2:46 "it's a pretty approachable supercar" eh... it's a sports car.

    26. Steven Brown

      $60,000 in the UK is £42,000. Why is it retailing for £80,000

    27. Leon Batey

      I am very certain I don't want that hunk of a american junk.

    28. Jose Palomino

      Just came here to say I'd rather have an mr2

    29. hermyfromgermy

      The cheapest Toyota MR2 in Norway goes for 7000£. Not fair.

    30. Grill Simon

      Were are the €€€€€€€

    31. TFRotA1

      Can we take a moment to appreciate the plate on that corvette... how much did "EU69 GYN" cost? lol

    32. Josh Kingdom

      I bought my mk3 MR2 2 years ago and I've loved every minute 😍 What a fun car to drive, honestly get people on the street saying 'Nice car!' as they pass which I don't like to say as it sounds obnoxious 😅

    33. ALph4

      Classic R8 is the best R8. I don't understand why they abandoned that look. They should make a ''Classic edition'' with updated specs but the same look at Gen 1. I bet that would sell like hotcakes.

    34. BoyTheDrummer

      Better than an MX-5? Have a quiet word with yourself, Alex.

    35. Wretched Slippage

      the C8 is so ugly. I hate it so much! I hope they make it a proper Corvette next time. It can be mid-engined sure but i hope it doesnt look so shit

    36. Ghost

      U selling that mr2 lad

    37. Ghost

      The me2 spyder is my dream car its segsy af

    38. Ernest Wenham

      That exact c8 is on auto trader for £125000 so £40000 more than he said.

    39. R In-ul

      The R8 still looks astonishing even today

    40. Wyted

      Sorry, but they fked up that C8 design. Its rear looks ridiculous and ruins it...

    41. User454

      Corvette 🤮

    42. John Scholl

      the hell do yall get the $2000 MR2 price point for even. in the UK? in the US they are like $17,000 and up

    43. big_phist

      My question is how were you able to find an MR2 for only £2000?

      1. Hank P

        In the UK it's easy af

    44. TARZ

      Vrrr...crashed 😂🚕

    45. Pyramid Garage

      Corvette owner: European 69 Gynecologist

    46. Craig Blackburn

      i really do hope this show makes it to a big tv network, it capture the love of cars like old top gear along with funny and genuine chemistry amongst the presenters

    47. ardian krasniqi

      Brave of you to assume I can afford a 2k car

    48. Christoph27

      Got very luck to get an MR-S as my second ever car. I originally wanted a MK2 because I loved the looks but from all the research I've done the SW20 is a bit of a turd stock, I wanted an ultimate cornering machine and the ZZW30 is just that. Snatched one off in Germany for 3k with a hardtop before they rose in price after last winter. The looks already grew on me too.

    49. Jack

      Think I’d rather pay the £80k for that second hand r8 than that corvette!

    50. XxSpeedyxX

      More like the car i can afford, but the car i cant get because im 14 lmao

    51. Jabber 1974

      The R8 has aged like fine wine, the C8 induces up chucking in everyone who sees it.

    52. Jabber 1974

      3 ‘I really wanted a different car but this is all I could afford’ cars.

    53. Jabber 1974

      The R8 is looking at the the C8 and thinking, i’m passing the ‘poor mans’ supercar baton to you mate. Nothing screams I can’t afford a proper supercar louder than the C8.

    54. d1strappazon

      There's no way in hell you can get that R8 for 35 grand. Especially in the US. It's more like 70-80 grand

    55. Ciaran Lonergan

      THE Z GEAR

    56. Henry Bridges

      Lots of people put a 190bhp 2ZZ engine in the MR2 makes them a lot more fun, i’ve even seen some honda engines in them (220bhp)

    57. Nebula

      That MR2 is sooo ugly, what did Toyota think, the previous gen was so sick looking.

    58. James Wallace

      R8 is the best car there without a shadow of a doubt. Nobody wants a big American built car in the uk they just don’t work. Except the mustang which comes in right hand drive

    59. Christine Ayres

      Problem is all the MR2s on Autotrader are shit boxes , that have done over 100 thousand miles and people have the cheek to charge £3 grand for them lol , MX5 would be a better buy but again Rust problems lol

    60. jj182bass

      Audi R8 should be amazing but somehow is the coldest "supercar" ever.

    61. Sonny


    62. Mayank Maximum

      Corvette vs r8 I like corvette so duh I would buy a vette but Chevy is not in inida and I am a kid and that. R8 is exactly like my toy r8 😭 and not the mr2 I hate it insane I would mx5 or a z

    63. GarThor Son of Odin

      We apparently never got the R8 quattro in 07, but we did in 08. Unfortunately they are close to $60k here... curses... ;_;

    64. Ihtesham Khan

      anyone who thinks the R8 is ugly doesn’t deserve to call themselves a car enthusiast

    65. Ihtesham Khan

      i can assure you the C8 is the i definitely DONT want and never will. it’s way too ugly to be worth anything. R8 for me all day, everyday.

    66. v1m30

      1:20, 80k GBP or 60k USD, damn, that's like half the price in US isn't it.

    67. Trond Mjøs

      Position of the front registration completely ruins the corvette's look!

    68. Sami Khamis

      And yet the r8 still has it

    69. Andris Slisans

      4:40 I want Civic Type-R

    70. Tyler Hemeon

      c8 1.5x the price in the uk and the mr2 is 3x the price in america.

    71. Matt Evans

      The R8 still looks futuristic, even today. Amazing car.

    72. Alec Karfonta

      I will never sell my mr2. Given me twelve years of smiles. Even with my amateurly installed mods the thing has not had a single major problem. All my money goes into upgrades instead of repairs.

    73. Kyle

      Can we just have the gen2 turbo MR2 please?

    74. _Mtthw_

      Good friends with someone who has a first gen R8 and it’s amazing, such a mind blowing car it’s a shame you don’t see many but up in Scotland there’s quite common!

    75. Doc_Is_Evil

      Alex said 35k for an R8 V8 first gen gated manual.....

    76. CM

      The MR2 costs 12k minimum i could find, and an older version That version goes from 15k

    77. Liam Kinnaird

      That c8 running amazing power cause of uk fuel quality

    78. English Car Guy

      America makes a mockery of no replacement for displacement. Honestly how do they only get 400+horsepower from 6.2 litres

    79. Erick Roldán

      3rd gen MR2 = affordable fun 1st gen R8 = similarly fun with better engine sound and more creature comforts C8 Stingray = insane fun and the most expensive of the 3 due to being the only new model yet still relatively cheap compared to most mid-engine cars of the era.

    80. eurosonly

      "Every budget" What can I get for 10 Dollars?

    81. eurosonly

      So after having viewed some listings for the same generation of mr2 I am not actually able to afford it. Even the cheapest one. Gonna have to call click bait title on this one.

    82. Peter C

      Rather have the R8..... Stingray C8 is a nice car , but i am curious how the materials and interior hold op in about 10 years from now.... until then , i have the r8 thx...... And that MR2 is just plain ugly and in the days it was way overpriced new for a half celica/half corolla without a roof.... better compared a Honda S2000 against these....

    83. MrAzers

      I still daily drive my 2005 mr2 spyder. It has 106k miles. Have modded it, love the damn thing but it is slow once you get off the line.

    84. Stuart James Photography

      the vette just looks dated already the design is not good. might be amazing to drive but its not looking good already

    85. JT Terror

      there is no r8 for that cheap unless it doesn't have an engine.

    86. Greg Pruett

      I'll take a 2zz swapped mr2 six speed manual over the others anyday.

    87. Matthew Dev

      £80,000 but $60,000?? That's backwards!

    88. Justin Hedrick

      Hey hey what did the Type R ever do to you?

    89. John Ogston

      You can buy the Ford focus rs for £35,000 I would prob go for that but only fault is that its turning circle is rubbish since its all wheel drive

    90. David Reynolds

      Who would truly want that ugly MR2 hairdresser's car anyway?

    91. SlackerDrew

      I think the Corvette looks crap...

    92. Josh Hulse

      the mr2 does 0-60 in 8 secs not 6.8 secs did he say? and 1030kg not 996kg

    93. Jovan Ivanovic

      To a lucky few every car is affordable :D

    94. Uncal Bert

      "Taxes and shipping included for American winners" - Nobody from America is going to win then lol

    95. Richy10 Vtec

      good video

    96. KCJbomberFTW

      Alex wasted the opportunity to lick the R8 wheel “Mmmm nice car”

    97. MADXP 96

      Plug off the maf sensor on the r8 You'll have tons of fun

    98. Mikko Matilainen

      Cheap MR2's in the UK, here in Finland they start at 10000€, driven 200 000km..

    99. Thijs Kennis

      It might be just me buy my god that Corvette is UGLY!

    100. M.K.C. Technology

      Ain't nobody want no ugly ass C8 Corvette Chevy should have left that shit front engine rear-wheel drive
