Regular Cars With Supercar Performance You Can Lease Today

For most of us, owning a supercar is nothing more than a daydream. We may all want to get behind the wheel of a McLaren, but the likelihood of being able to drive a supercar with a price range in the hundreds of thousands of pounds will only ever be available to a select few. 

Thankfully, there are plenty of cars available where, even if you don’t get supercar stylings, you can get supercar performance. From hot hatchbacks with racing pedigrees to executive saloons with sporty engines, there are plenty of ways to satisfy your need for speed – and all of them are available on car lease deals!

1) Toyota GR Yaris Hatchback

Toyota-Yaris-Blog

Toyota has always made its purpose in motorsport very clear: to take the lessons it learn on the track and apply them to the cars it sells to the public. Its Le Mans Entries have trickled down technology to its hybrid cars and its rally entries have always helped develop the company’s road-going counterparts.

The GR Yaris is a bit different, however, in that it is basically Toyota’s rally car with a proper interior. With blistering performance from its 3-cylinder engine, the GR Yaris goes from 0-62 in just 5.5 seconds. For an all-wheel-drive hatchback, that’s astonishing.

2) Toyota GR Supra

Toyota-GR-Supra-Blog

The Toyota Supra GR is a legendary name in performance driving, with the old Mk4 of the 1990s proving to be a huge draw to a younger generation of fans, thanks to its starring roles in the Gran Turismo computer games and the Fast & Furious film franchise. When Toyota announced that it was bringing back the Supra name for an all-new model, fans immediately began looking excitedly at the car’s performance stats.

Thankfully, they weren’t disappointed, with even the Supra’s lower-powered 2.0-litre 4-cylinder turbo engine pushing the lightweight 2-seater from 0-62mph in a competitive 5.2 seconds. With a built-in association with Toyota’s Gazoo Racing arm, the Supra is most definitely back.

3) Mercedes EQC Estate

Mercedes-EQC-Blog

So, are you looking for a car that can fit 3 children, 2 dogs and a couple of bags of shopping in the back, while still being able to tear away from the line like a rocket?

If so, then the Mercedes EQC may just be the car for you! Merc’s 4-wheel drive all-electric SUV is both conscientious and crushingly quick. Mercedes-Benz has created a thoroughly modern and rapid car that sprints away from the line at a blistering pace to reach 62mph in just 5.1 seconds.

4) Ford Mustang Fastback

Ford-Mustang-Blog

An enduring symbol of true muscle car heritage, the Ford Mustang Fastback was built for quarter-mile performance, with a growling V8 that is as iconic as it is loud.

Ford hasn’t simply dropped in the traditional V8 lump and called it a day. It has added technology from the mighty Ford GT to develop one of the best engines around. The 4.8-second 0-62 time, which isn’t far off its supercar stablemate, underlines just how much the American manufacturer has learned.

5) Jaguar I-PACE

Jaguar-IPACE-Blog

Be honest – did you ever think that you’d be looking at an SUV that would pull 0-62mph in less than 5 seconds? It may be Jaguar’s first fully electric vehicle, but the Jaguar I-PACE is already turning heads with its luxurious cabin, its suave good looks, and the fact that from a standing start it can leave just about every other SUV in the dust.

Gaining a totally bespoke coupe body that shares nothing with the regular E-PACE and F-PACE SUVs in the Jaguar range, the I-PACE leaves its petrol-powered siblings well behind it in a drag race, with its electric motor pulling a time of 4.8 seconds to 62mph.

6) Volkswagen Golf R

Volkswagen-Golf-Blog

It may seem a strange entry, but the iconic Volkswagen Golf R has been thumbing its nose at supercars ever since it first launched as the R32 in 2003, in the Mk4 generation of VW’s family hatchback, and long may it continue to do so.

These days, it has a 2.0-litre inline 4-cylinder engine producing 320hp and a maximum speed of 155mph, but it also has enough torque and 4-wheel-drive traction off the line to do 0-62mph in a blistering 4.7 seconds – although videos have circulated of the car blasting to 62 in 4 seconds flat. And that’s the same time as a Porsche 911. It may have 2 fewer cylinders than a Porsche, but it’ll fight it off the line any day of the week.

7) BMW Z4

BMW-Z4s-Blog

BMW’s stylish 2-seater sports car has been around for a while now, but it’s never been a better proposition for drivers looking to get supercar performance without supercar costs. Lightweight, punchy and stylish, the current range-topping third generation BMW Z4 has been tuned to perfection by the wizards in BMW’s M Division. So while this convertible has plenty of strong 4-cylinder turbo engines to choose from, it’s the M40i you want to be looking at if you’re after supercar-baiting pace.

That’s because the top-spec Z4 has a lusty 3.0-litre 6-cylinder unit with 340hp and 500Nm of torque, which means it can wring out a 0-62mph time of just 4.6 seconds – making it capable of keeping up with rival offerings from Porsche and Toyota.

## 8) Tesla Model 3

Tesla-Model-3-Blog

What can be said about the Tesla Model 3’s acceleration that hasn’t already been said? The electric phenomenon is known for blistering performance off the line, with our chosen Long Range Dual Motor model transferring its 440hp seamlessly to the road. 

For a car with an executive saloon body to be putting in a sub-5-second 0-62 time is impressive. For it to be worrying the 4-second barrier is astonishing, and truly pushes the Model 3’s acceleration performance towards supercar territory. Oh, and if you want more speed from your EV? Try the Model 3 Performance, which can do 0-62mph in 3.1 seconds!

9) Audi RS3

Audi-RS3-Blog

Audi is known the world over for building great cars with stupendous performance. From Volkswagen backing to motorsport heritage, the brand with the 4 rings has everything it needs to build exciting cars that seamlessly combine luxury with performance.

Given Audi’s pedigree, then, it’s hardly surprising that even its more affordable cars offer great off-the-line performance, and the Audi RS3 is no different. While it doesn’t share an engine with the headlining R8 supercar, its sonorous 2.5-litre 5-cylinder turbo unit still has a whopping 400hp, which means it’ll run 0-62mph in just 3.8 seconds – not far off its illustrious V10 stablemate’s 3.1-second sprint in its most powerful, 620hp ‘performance’ guise.
