‘If you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all’ is a saying that might hold true for some things, but never for us petrol heads. If you’re looking for something that’ll charm the socks off anyone, these are five of the most fun and quirky cars available on the CarBuyer Marketplace!

2011 Alfa Romeo 159
COE Expiry: 12 Dec 2030

The only V6 in the 159 model range, this Alfa comes with 256hp and 322Nm of torque. With four-wheel drive, this sedan is also the predecessor to the Giulia. This particular model on the marketplace also comes equipped with electric seats with memory function, park assist, and Bluetooth functionality.

Given the fact that you don’t see many Alfa Romeos on our Singapore streets, this model definitely makes for a fun and quirky drive. The V6 159 is also a bit of a celebrity, having been featured in the opening scene of the 2008 James Bond movie Quantum of Solace, and even featured in a car chase with the Aston Martin DBS V12.

2007 Suzuki Every
COE Expiry: 20 Aug 2027

We promised fun and quirky, and this kei van from Suzuki embodies that. Sure, you’re not exactly Speedy Gonzales in this with a speed limit of 70km/h on our roads and a four speed automatic transmission, but with a colourful exterior and an interior you can customise, this Suzuki Every is every bit (pun unintended) the fun and quirky car.

2001 Porsche Boxster (986)
COE Expiry: 1 Apr 2029

Featuring a water-cooled flat six mid-engine, the convertible was also the brand’s lifesaver from its introduction in 1996 until the introduction of the Cayenne. This particular model on the marketplace features a five-speed Tiptronic gearbox with paddle shifters, a Bose sound system, and Bluetooth functionality to make driving with the top down all that more fun. 

This 986 Boxster was also the brand’s first road vehicle to be originally designed as a roadster since the 550 Spyder, a fun fact you can throw when you pull up to the next car meet up in this.

2008 Mazda RX-8
COE Expiry: 31 Oct 2028

This last of its kind (for now) RX-8 features a six speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters puts out 212hp and 216Nm of torque, definitely making for a fun and spritely drive in this Japanese sports car. This front mid-engine rear wheel drive sports car also features coach doors, a quirk not seen as often in other cars. 

This particular model comes specced in a full bodykit and even full leather upholstery on the interior, with plenty of space for four in the car. 

1990 Mercedes-Benz 200E
COE Expiry: 1 Apr 2029

If you’re into classic cars, it doesn’t get better than this Mercedes-Benz on our Marketplace. This classic W124 200E has an inline-four petrol engine, capable of 116hp with a four-speed automatic transmission. You won’t necessarily be breaking records but touting a vintage car like this about town is sure to make you the talk of it. This particular model also comes equipped with sport rims, reverse sensors, and power steering.
