  'Even if you are good you also need to be extraordinarily fortunate': World chess champion Magnus Carlsen says combination of studying data and following his 'gut' helped him top the Premier League's Fantasy Football - ahead of SEVEN MILLION others The 29-year-old Norwegian's team had, for a brief moment, stood proudly ahead of seven million other online competitors, making him the best fantasy football player on the planet.

Our pick - VW e-Golf 35.8kWh, 2017/67, 9000 miles, £19,500: Although an underachiever, Volkswagen’s electric Golf has held the fort while the company prepared this year’s major assault on the EV market. The e-Golf was facelifted in 2017 when it gained a bigger battery. Add all the usual Golf virtues and you’re looking at a thoroughly well-rounded electric car. Expect prices to firm in 2020 as demand for affordable used EVs grows.

The biggest car discounts ahead of the March plate change - how to save up to £12,000

  The biggest car discounts ahead of the March plate change - how to save up to £12,000 2020 sees big jump in savings as new car market strugglesWith new ‘20’ plate registrations due to be issued from March 1, research into the biggest savings has revealed a significant increase in discounts being offered and the brands and models where buyers can land the biggest bargains.

Some used cars here are not necessarily good investments or even smart purchases. For instance, a 10-year-old Porsche or a 10-year-old Maserati will $ 20 ,000 can get you quite a lot on the used car market. Obviously, all of these cars are used and have been found on various car -selling websites

Forbes recently published a list of the 20 best used car and truck bargains available today. Gregg Fidan is the founder of RealCarTips. After being ripped off on his first car purchase, he devoted several years to figuring out the best ways to avoid scams and negotiate the best car deals.

Jaguar I-Pace (from 2018)

Our pick - Jaguar I-Pace S, 2019/68, 7000 miles, £49,999: Premium EVs such as the Jaguar I-Pace are still finding their price level on the used car market: the sector is in its infancy and buyers are in the driving seat. Don’t count on things staying that way for much longer, though.

Renault Zoe i (from 2015)

Our pick - Renault Zoe R240 i-Dynamic, 2015/65, 17,000 miles, £12,750: From 2015, it was possible to buy a Renault Zoe with the battery included and badged ‘i’. We prefer this so-called ‘battery-owned’ solution, as do increasing numbers of Zoe buyers. Prices for this version will rise throughout this year, so buy one now.

Land Rover Defender (from 1990)

Our pick - Land Rover Defender 110 2.2 D DPF XS, 2013/13, 69,000 miles, £25,000: You can never have too much of a good thing, so while demand, and therefore prices, for Defenders hardly need any help, more is likely to come in the shape of this year’s all-new, and much more expensive, model. On top of that, there’s the build-up to the launch of the new Defender-inspired Ineos Grenadier. So bag an original Defender before excitement and prices get out of hand. Preferably a late example, like our pick, with the four-cylinder 2.2 or 2.4 diesel engine.

Aston Martin shaves the roof off its Vantage to create the 190mph Roadster - but heaps another £12,000 on to the asking price

  Aston Martin shaves the roof off its Vantage to create the 190mph Roadster - but heaps another £12,000 on to the asking price With a starting price from £126,960, the Vantage Roadster joins its Coupe sibling, which was launched in 2018 and costs from £114,850 - but with a premium of more than £12,000.  Though expect to pay much more if adding bespoke sport and luxury extras such as sports-plus seats and carbon-fibre interiors.The taut and tailored black fabric roof has a compact powered Z-fold mechanism which means it can be lowered in 6.7 seconds or raised in 6.8 seconds.

The sleeper car doesn’t broadcast that it has enough horsepower to make a supercar blush, nor that it can hunt apexes like a Le Mans winner. No, at first glance it’s unassuming, hidden high performance — until it’s needed. Sleepers are the “quiet ones” you have to look out for.

They're some of the best cars in the world, but it doesn't help resale value when the people who can afford to buy an S-Class at a small Unlike most of its competitors, a used G90 probably won't be particularly unreliable or expensive to maintain. But no matter how good a car it is, a bland design

Aston Martin DBS Superleggera (from 2018)

Our pick - Aston Martin DBS Superleggera, 2018/68, 8000 miles, £172,000: A new DBS Superleggera costs £225,000 but already you can find used ones from £175,000. Don’t bank on previously loved examples being available at these prices for much longer, though. A Superleggera sharing screen time with Daniel Craig in his final outing as 007 could be just the exposure the model needs, and expect stronger prices to follow.

Mazda MX-5 2.0 (from 2018)

Our pick - Mazda 2.0 160PS Sport Nav, 2018/18, 18,000 miles, £15,000: Now is the time to buy a 2018-reg MX-5 2.0 while spring is still some way off. But not just any MX-5 2.0, oh no. Prices of the last 2018-reg 160PS models are being squeezed by the first examples of the uprated and better-equipped 2.0-litre version. Fortunately, the lower-powered car is still a delight to drive – just make sure its price reflects its reduced desirability.

Triumph Stag (from 1970-77)

a red car parked on the side of a road © Provided by Autocar

Our pick - Triumph Stag 3.0, 1977, 115,000 miles, £13,000: It’s the Stag’s 50th anniversary this year, and around 35% of the 26,000 cars ever made survive to this today. It’s possible to find a sound and reliable Stag from around £10,000, but prices for the best are sure to rise as a chorus of ‘happy birthday!’ rings out.

Second-hand supercars: millionaire motors for a fraction of the cost

  Second-hand supercars: millionaire motors for a fraction of the cost Fancy a supercar for a fraction of the cost? We’ve trawled the classifieds to find a selection of exotic bargainsCrazy though it sounds, one of the best supercars of recent memory is already looking good value. We are, of course, referring to the McLaren 600LT of 2018. Mega though the track-prepped McLaren is, it hasn’t held its value well. You could easily spend more than £250,000 on one when new, but they’re now available for less than £150,000. The 600LT may have further to fall, too.

On the flipside, certain used car segments are seeing price increases on vehicles that are five years old or less. For instance, used vans saw the largest price increase, up 6.6% compared to last year. August 20 , 2020 . Best Car Deals Around the Country. Cars With the Largest Cash Back Rebates.

BMW i8 (from 2013)

a car driving on a road © Provided by Autocar

Our pick - BMW i8, 2015/15, 30,000 miles, £41,000: Most new premium plug-in hybrids crash in value the moment they’re registered. The i8 is such an example. New, the petrol-electric sports car cost £115,000, but today, a five-year-old example with low mileage can be yours for £45,000. In fact, according to valuation guide Cap, an i8 is worth £20,000 less at one year old and 10,000 miles than it was two years ago. But we predict the model will hit a price point when buyers consider it to be value for money, and prices will firm.

Porsche 911 (996) (from 1998-2004)

a blue car parked on the side of a road © Provided by Autocar

Our pick - Porsche 911 3.6, 2002/02, 52,000 miles, £19,995: The values of the first liquid-cooled 911s have been soft for ages, but signs are they’re picking up. More are coming to market with their RMS seal, IMS bearing and other troublesome components replaced. Carrera 2 coupés are great value, and Cabriolets and Targas surprisingly so. Choose a facelifted 3.6 over the earlier 3.4.

Ferrari 360 (from 1999-2005)

a red car driving on a road © Provided by Autocar

Our pick - Ferrari F360 Spider, 2002/02, 32,000 miles, £44,900: Each year brings its own ‘bargain’ Ferrari, and now it’s the turn of the all-aluminium F360. Look hard and you might find a tatty one in the mid-£30,000s, but prices for honest cars start in the mid-£40,000s.

James Ruppert: Practical diesel cars that won't fall foul of the ULEZ

  James Ruppert: Practical diesel cars that won't fall foul of the ULEZ Vauxhall Astras, Insignias and - if you're hankering for a bit more style - the Mazda 6 all fit the briefFirst off, there are some colossal-mileage estates around for a few thousand pounds, and it just depends on whether you want something that has been properly maintained or with low mileage. Otherwise it could be poised to deliver an awful lot of diesel particulate filter and simple old-age issues. I think Ian needs an estate with a bit of life left in it, so I’ll stick with motors below 70,000 miles.

The 360 is that rare thing: a usable Ferrari that’s also relatively easy to work on, even for a home mechanic. Among the many things to watch out for when buying are the condition of the engine mountings and timing belt tensioner bearings, which from around 20,000 miles can be damaged by vibration. If it’s a convertible, pause the hood halfway through its cycle to check the ram seals aren’t leaking.

BMW 1 Series M Coupé (from 2011-11)

a red car parked on the side of a road © Provided by Autocar

Our pick - BMW 1 Series M Coupé, 2011/11, 41,000 miles, £33,980: Will 2020 be the year prices of the 1 Series M Coupé begin to soften? It cost £39,990 new, but in early January over a dozen were being advertised for between £40,000 and £62,950. But joy of joys, we found one for ‘just’ £33,980. It’s in sought-after Valencia Orange and has done 41,000 miles. More tellingly, it’s being offered by a BMW dealer.

Ford Mustang (from 2015)

a car parked on the side of a road © Provided by Autocar

Our pick - Ford Mustang 2.3T Ecoboost coupé, 2015/65, 28,000 miles, £20,000: Fancy a cheap UK Mustang in 2020? True, it’s likely to be the cooking 2.3 Ecoboost, such as the 2015-reg with 28,000 miles and full Ford history for £20,000 that we found. That said, the 5.0-litre V8 version isn’t too far behind price-wise, at least if the 32,000-mile, 2016-reg 5.0 GT we saw with a Ford dealer for £24,750 is anything to go by.

MG Midget (from 1961-80)

a car parked on the side of a road © Provided by Autocar

Our pick - MG Midget, 1979, 71,000 miles, £3695: This year we predict a rush for cars registered in 1979 as they become the latest generation to enjoy road tax exemption. Of course, you could buy an EV and dodge it that way, but it would be much more expensive and not half as much fun.

Mercedes-Benz S-Class (from 2014-2020)

Our pick - Mercedes-Benz S350d L AMG Line Executive, 2018/18, 17,000 miles, £37,000: You can buy a one-year-old S350d L AMG Line with 17,000 miles on the clock for £37,000, or half of its new price. Hardly surprising when online sellers are knocking out brand-new Grand Edition versions with £25,000 off, taking the price to £55,000. So what on earth is going on? Simply put, there’s an all-new S-Class on its way. Loaded with advanced technology and offering a choice of plug-in hybrid and all-electric variants, it’s set to be the limousine to have.

Jaguar F-Type (from 2013)

a car parked on the side of a road © Provided by Autocar

Our pick - Jaguar F-Type 3.0 V6 S convertible, 2013/13, 75,000 miles, £21,500: This year we’ll see the first F-Types dip below £20,000. We’ve already seen a 2013-reg 3.0 S for £22,990. It’s a two-owner car with full service history but it’s also a private sale, which has to be worth at least £1500 off, especially considering the car’s value at auction can be no more than £17,000.

Citroën Berlingo Multispace (from 2008-18)

a blue car driving on a road © Provided by Autocar

Our pick - Citroën Berlingo Multispace BlueHDi 100 Flair, 2016/66, 15,000 miles, £11,400: Brexit queues at Calais? It looks like the only solution to a great holiday in 2020 will be to stay in globally warmed Blighty and go camping – for which you’ll need a tent and a car capable of taking it, all the gear and the family. Bring on the Berlingo Multispace.

BMW 5 Series (from 2017)

a car parked on the side of a road © Provided by Autocar

Our pick - BMW 530d M Sport auto, 2018/18, 11,000 miles, £27,300: Diesels are still here and, at least on the used market, they’re still selling. Few make more sense than a BMW 530d. Our pick, a one-owner car with full BMW service history, equates to a saving of almost £25,000 on the new price. Buying it or another big Euro 6 diesel could well be your smartest motoring decision of 2020.

Real estate investment: good plans in Bordeaux

 Real estate investment: good plans in Bordeaux © Julia Casado / Pixabay Real estate investment: good plans in Bordeaux In Bordeaux, good deals are scarce. Better to turn to the periphery. The rating, in the process of stabilization, has undoubtedly reached its maximum. At 3,000 euros per square meter on average in the metropolitan area, and up to 6,000 euros in the city center, bargains are scarce. Including Airbnb, now very supervised by the town hall.

Lotus Elan (from 1989-1995)

a blue car parked on the side of a road © Provided by Autocar

Our pick - Lotus Elan S1 1.6 SE Turbo, 1991, 83,000 miles, £7995: Prices for the wonderful Elan M100 start at only around £6500 for a tidy 1992-reg S1 Turbo with 100,000 miles. At the other extreme, £14,000 will get you into a Lotus dealer’s mint 1996 S2 with 68,000 miles. Either way, it’s not a lot for a future classic – if only that future would hurry up. Buy now.

Porsche Macan (from 2014)

a car parked on the side of a road © Provided by Autocar

Our pick - Porsche Macan 3.0 Diesel S PDK, 2015/15, 127,000 miles, £18,750: In its day, the Macan was the best SUV by far, with a £43,000 new price tag to prove it. Forward six years and prices of the first diesel versions with 100,000 miles are now around £25,000. However, we found a 2015-reg for £18,750. There are sure to be more as the year unwinds.

Rover 75 (from 1999-2005)

a car parked on the side of a road © Provided by Autocar

Our pick - Rover 75 2.5 V6 Connoisseur SE auto, 2001, 23,000 miles, £3990: With Boris Johnson’s oven-ready deal on the table, we forecast an upswing in interest from rose-tinted patriots for anything with a BL, MG or Rover badge. Our money’s on Rover 75 V6s – a kind of poor man’s Bentley but built by BMW rather than VW. Meanwhile, for something truly special, bag an MG ZT 260 powered by a 4.8-litre V8.
