I mean, let’s face it. We all want to get our hands on a brand new Range Rover, or the latest Ferrari – right? Well maybe not… We’ve decided to look at the dream cars young people want vs the national top 10 dream cars overall.
The top 10 dream cars according to thetoptens.com:
- Bugatti Veyron
- Lamborghini Murcielago LP640
- Ferrari Enzo
- Koenigsegg Agera R
- Audi R8
- Aston Martin DB5
- Pagani Huayra
- Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4
- Aston Martin 77
- The Bat Mobile
The Bat Mobile!? Ok – we really are wishing aren’t we!
Looking at this list, it’s easy to see why people dream of getting their hands on these motors, but are these the cars that young people are dreaming of? We recently completed a survey of 450 young people to see if these are the types of cars they’re eager to have!
- 59 young drivers dream first car is a Mini!
- 55 young people want to get their hands on a Fiat 500!
- 48 dream of a Ford Fiesta or Focus as their first car.
- 34 people who completed the survey want an Audi, with the majority after an Audi A1!
- 21 drivers’ dream car is either a Vauxhall Adam or Corsa.
- 9 would love to get their hands on a Range Rover.
- 2 optimistic young drivers fancy a Ferrari!
This goes to show that young people these days don’t necessarily want super flash sport cars, but practicality –and that’s exactly what we’re getting! Maybe we’re a new boring generation, but we can set our sights on cars that look the part, drive well and don’t break the bank! Anyway, have you ever heard of a 17 year old getting insured on a Buggatti Veyron? No… me neither!
If you don’t already know, we sell brand new cars for young drivers. We thought you’d be interested to see the top 10 cars that young drivers are buying (based on sales figures over the last 12 months). The great news ease, the majority of these young drivers have drivers have driven away with free insurance from Marmalade!

We asked a few team members at Marmalade what their dream cars are – and if they ever managed to get their hands on it.
Crispin – My dream car is a Porsche 911. After watching the film Condorman, I fell in love and wanted to get my hands on my own 911 – so I did! Unfortunately, I was putting too many miles on it so had to sell it. It just wasn’t practical, but it was my baby!
Chloe – I’ve always loved the look of a Nissan Figaro! I was determined to have one as much first car, but because they’re older – I knew deep down it wasn’t a great idea. I love quirky cars, so I got my hands on a Vauxhall Adam as my first car. It’s modern but with a retro feel.
Ben – I used to play a lot of Grand Tourismo, and my favourite car was a Subaru Impreza WRX STI so I always dreamt that would be my first set of wheels! Unfortunately, I ended up with Ford KA because that was all I could afford!
Lee – My dream car has to be an Audi R8! I think I first saw it in a film, and fell in love straight away. Too bad their way out of my budget! I got my hands on a VW Golf instead, and whilst it’s not as flash as the R8, it does the job perfectly!
