8. Lotus Exige

Lotus Exige S Roadster driving

New price: £52,900Average percentage retained: 58.6 per cent

The Lotus Exige is a lightweight two-seater sports car with plenty to offer a potential owner - as long as they don't have practicality, comfort or running costs in mind.

It has a high price tag as a new car, but the excellent residuals do offset that slightly, and the communicative steering, explosive performance and grippy chassis will be a big draw to a future owner.
