AutoTrader name their top Le Tour automobiles, and give you the chance to win your own.
The Tour de France winds its way through some of the most stunning backdrops on earth, making the world’s ultimate cycle race, the ultimate road trip too. This year AutoTrader, South Africa’s trusted motoring marketplace, invites you to take a virtual motor-tour in one of Europe’s leading automobiles and invites you to enter the competition to buy a brand new car for just 99c.
The #99cNewCar competition is in celebration of AutoTrader's recent unveiling of brand new cars to nearly 60 000 used cars already available on their site. This innovative brand is offering buyers the chance to own a new car for less than the cost of a pan au chocolat.
In honour of the Tour de France, AutoTrader have listed their top three Tour picks - brand new European cars perfect for meandering along the world’s greatest race, one of which could, or could not, be the mystery 99c vehicle:
One of Britain’s most legendary sports cars sails through the French Alps and is top of the list – enter the Jaguar. The 2015 F Type S Coupe with its tiptronic transmission and impeccable handling offers an unforgettable two-person glide through the mountains.
Audi’s renowned German engineering makes for machines bred to float through the best of the Tour, whether tackling the toughest mountain climbs or the most enchanting coastline. Treat the family to a Tour in the sleek and spacious Q7 3.0TDI Quattro, or go honeymooning in the peerless 2-door TT 2.0T.
No Tour would be complete without France’s own Citroën, created by André-Gustave Citroën in 1924. Ranging from the 4x4 power of the C4 SUV to the ultra light and easy DS3 THP 155 Sport, the Citroen’s affordability means double the sights for the same easy price.
