A new car can cost up to £8,000, and the most expensive in the UK, a $1,300,000 car from the late 1990s, can fetch you almost twice that.

    Newer cars, however, have gone on sale faster than ever before, and a new £10,000 Bentley is now on sale for just £10k, while a £40,000 Jaguar XKR is on sale at £85,000.

    How old do I need to buy the car that I want?

    The old-fashioned way of looking at buying a new vehicle is to take a look at how much it costs to buy it and the interest rate that you pay.

    It is worth looking at both the finance costs and the finance charges, especially if you are buying a car that you are planning to buy for yourself or your family.

    If you are looking to buy your first car, and want to save money on finance, you might want to start with a lower-interest loan, for example, or a credit card.

    The finance charges that you will pay in your first purchase of a new or used car will depend on the car and the terms of the loan.

    For example, a car with a finance charge of £20,000 will have a finance rate of 5 per cent, which means you will get a 25 per cent interest rate on your loan.

    If the car has a finance cost of £30,000 and a finance price of £25,000 you will only pay 3 per cent on your new loan, which will result in a £12,000 payment on the first payment of £6,500.

    However, if you have a higher finance charge than £30k and a higher price of the car, you will need to pay more interest on your first payment.

    If the finance charge is higher than £40k, and you pay a higher rate than 5 per per cent you may find that you need a higher loan, especially at the low end of the finance price range.

    For example if you pay £40K for a new $50k Bentley, your finance rate will be 5 per to 6 per cent.

    You would then need to borrow £60,000 from a bank, and repay £60K of that amount with interest of 5% to 7 per cent per annum.

    However, this scenario doesn’t apply if you buy a car on a low-interest, one-year finance loan, such as £1,000 a month or £5,000 in the first year.

    This is where the interest starts to rise, and that is where you can use the finance rates offered in your loan contract to help you make a decision about the car.

    If your finance charge for a £1k new car is £10K, and your finance charges are £20K and £20k respectively, then you would need to repay £20M in interest from the first month of the first repayment of the £1K loan to repay the £10M of finance charges.

    If, however you buy the £50k, £70k, or £90k car, your loan repayments will be £30M to £50M, and £60M to 25M in the second month.

    This is the case if you do not repay all of the interest on the loan within the first 12 months of the new loan term, or if you repay less than 12 months in total.

    If you pay interest in full and the first repayments are less than the total amount of interest repayments then you will not be eligible to borrow more money from a lender.

    As you will likely be paying interest on a loan term of 12 months or less, the interest repayings will be much less than you would otherwise pay on a longer-term loan.
