AUTOMOTIVE marketplace CarGurus has found that Chevrolet Camaro and classic Rolls-Royce models are the most in-demand rare used cars.

Through the company’s ‘Desirability Score’, which highlights the top searched for used cars, CarGurus has been able to pinpoint the most popular models with under 100 cars listed for sale on the site since July 2018.

Another performance car that features a motor from the States is the Vauxhall VXR8 – a model that ranks five in the top 10 list.
