German cars tend to dominate the luxury car sales in most markets thanks to their combination of cutting-edge technology and superior performance capabilities. And being well engineered (on the most part) they also tend to weather the years better than most too. This does set the scene for some great classics too, especially ones hailing from the last two decades, cars that can still deliver serious performance while still being modern enough for regular use.

Pick well and your modern classic can even be a well-priced daily driver. There are plenty of great choices out there and we have taken an alphabetical gander through the German back catalogue to unearth some of the best ones.

From luxurious Autobahn racers to world-beating sports cars, there are a lot of great performance cars on offer, not all here are affordable or particularly cheap to run but they are all as impressive today as when they were new.
