The 5 at 5 Bring some bold, brash stylings to Irish roads.

BIG, BRASH, BOLD. These cars from the good ol’ US of A like to stand out from the crowd and make themselves noticed.

We’ve rounded up some American motors that you can buy on DoneDeal right now, from the dream car to the (slightly more) affordable.

2017 Ford Mustang Convertible, €83,400

DoneDeal DoneDeal

Well, you can’t have a list of American cars without a Mustang.

This is of course perhaps the most iconic American car, ever. Apart from the fabric roof, the convertible looks much the same as the coupe and turns heads just as much too. Motoring just doesn’t get any cooler. This is the epic 5.0-litre V8 version.

2015 Tesla Model S, €83,950

DoneDeal DoneDeal

This particular Tesla Model S is powered by the 85kWh battery and it has a dual motor and all-wheel drive.

Thanks to the all-electric powertrain and dual motors – one for the front and the other for the rear axle – torque delivery is instant and you really do feel the Gs as you get that boost in acceleration and do the 0-100km/h dash in just 3.3 seconds. The Tesla Model S is one of the most talked about cars of the last decade and one that lives up to the hype.

2017 Ford Edge, €51,500

DoneDeal DoneDeal

The Ford Edge is a big luxury SUV. It is an imposing machine with great road presence but it doesn’t look bulky or ungainly. It really is a fab-looking car. It is also highly practical with buckets of space for all passengers and a large boot too. Read our full Ford Edge review.

2015 Chrysler 300C, €34,950

DoneDeal DoneDeal

Chrysler is an American luxury car brand and a marque of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA). The 300C is a big, luxury saloon for the Irish and UK market.

It is more of a global car than an all-American one – as it is an American design but has components derived from the German Mercedes-Benz E-Class, is made in a factory in Canada and was eventually paid for by Italians.

2015 Jeep Cherokee, €27,995

DoneDeal DoneDeal

The Jeep Cherokee has distinctive looks and is pretty rugged yet still comfortable to drive. This particular model is the high spec Limited version and comes with all the bells and whistles you could possibly need in a car. It also gets some luxurious touches like Nappa Leather bucket seats which are heated, sat-nav, Bi-Xenon headlights and a rear view camera.
