Small but powerful turbo engines did not appear yesterday or today, but it is precisely these days that they are in greatest demand. So serious that there are practically no alternatives to them. But relatively recently, motorists still had a choice between large aspirated and compact supercharged units. If you miss those times, then this selection is for you: you have chosen cars with engines of more than five liters and a price tag of no more than 500,000 rubles, which you can buy on Avto.ru right now.
Mercedes-Benz R 500
The R-class is a model that did not go according to the script of marketers. It failed in the American market (which, in fact, was intended for), went well in Europe and took root in China - there this van is sold to this day! In Russia, the R-class was not in great demand: we do not like family cars, especially expensive ones. But now this unusual and even luxurious car can be bought at a very attractive price.
Why buy an ML500 crossover when you can buy an all-wheel drive minivan on the same platform for 500,000 rubles! Minivan, under the hood of which is installed a five-liter V8 with a capacity of 306 horsepower. A minivan that accelerates to 100 km / h in 7 seconds. A minivan with seven passengers on board gaining 245 kilometers per hour. A solid set of merits, isn't it?
Of course, the R-class was available with simpler engines, but the most juice - the version with the V8. Yes, exactly the "version". After all, the minivan was also available in the R 63 AMG version with a 6.2-liter 510-horsepower V8! Of these, however, less than a thousand were built. But the R 500 is enough around the world.
