In this thrilling video, Brad from the Ideal Media channel takes us on a journey through the world of affordable driver cars. Brace yourselves, ladies and gentlemen, because we're about to dive into a list of eight magnificent machines that can be yours for under $20,000.

First up, we have the e9x M3, a beastly V8 sports car from across the pond. With over 400 horsepower and the ability to be transformed into anything you desire, this BMW is a true enthusiast's dream. It's won more awards than Brad did in high school, and that's saying something. Plus, it offers supreme comfort and a driver-centric dash that will keep you engaged for hours on end.

But wait, the excitement doesn't stop there. Next on the list is the legendary Mitsubishi Evo, a rally-bred warrior that will make your heart race. This is no ordinary all-wheel drive sedan; it's a purpose-built machine that dominated the WRC. Brian O'Conner himself drove one in Fast and Furious, need I say more? With savage turbocharged power, a manual transmission, and all-wheel drive tech straight from the rally stages, the Evo is a force to be reckoned with.

Now, let's turn our attention to the spiritual successor of the iconic AE86, the F FRS. This lightweight, rear-wheel drive coupe is a dream come true for enthusiasts. With its perfect weight distribution and a 2.0L flat-four engine delivering around 200 horsepower, the F FRS offers a driving experience that will leave you grinning from ear to ear. It's a car that can be pushed to the limits without landing you in jail, and the best part? You can still find these beauties for under $20,000.

Moving on, we have the Lexus ISF, a seductive beast that combines luxury with performance. With a 5.0L V8 engine producing 416 horsepower, this car means business. It's got Lexus's unmatched suspension tuning, sticky tires, and rear-wheel drive, making it perfect for those who love big smokey burnouts. And let's not forget the snappy paddle shift 8-speed automatic that will launch you from 0 to 60 in just 4.4 seconds. The ISF is a stealthy speed demon that won't break the bank, making it an ideal choice for any enthusiast.

But the excitement doesn't end there, my friends. We also have the Skyline GTS, a rear-wheel drive beauty that offers the classic sports car layout we all crave. With its 212 horsepower inline-six engine, the GTS is a drift machine that will have you shredding those rear tires with delight. Plus, there's a massive aftermarket community that can help you unleash even more power from this timeless coupe. And the best part? You don't have to spend GTR money to get your hands on one of these gems.

Now, let's talk American muscle. The C6 Corvette is a front-engine, rear-wheel drive beast that will make your heart skip a beat. With its Ferrari-like looks and savage power, this car is a force to be reckoned with. The LS engine under the hood delivers a symphony of horsepower, and the handling just keeps getting better with every generation. It's a true King of the Hill, and you can find well-maintained examples for just around $17,000.

Last but certainly not least, we have the Mini Cooper S JCW GP, a pocket rocket that will leave you breathless. Don't let its small size fool you; this car means business. With its aggressive styling, tight suspension, and a handful of power, the GP is an absolute riot to drive. It's a front-wheel drive machine that will change your mind about the capabilities of this layout. And with its lightweight construction, every bit of power goes a long way. While the newest GP3 version might be out of reach, you can still find a GP1 or GP2 for around $20,000.

So there you have it, folks. Eight incredible driver cars that won't break the bank. From the European elegance of the e9x M3 to the raw power of the C6 Corvette, there's something for every enthusiast on this list. So go ahead, pick your favorite, and start living the ideal car lifestyle.
