During 2018, classic car values as a whole rose by 5.9% (source Classic Cars). However, within the 1500 models used as an
2019 as we know is a tough year to make any predictions about as it is cloaked in such uncertainty, but if I had to guess I suspect that 2019 will be similar to 2018 because the heady gains of the preceding years at the top end feel likely to need time to settle, and in a time of nervousness investors may choose to operate with caution in this area of the market as the big ticket items have collapsed in value before.

Ferrari 456 GT 1992-1997 and 456M 1998-2003
The reason I view these models as potential investments is because they are Ferrari’s and they are cheap examples of the marque £20000.00 to £40000.00 depending on condition, history, mileage etc. Many of Ferrari’s models have had a period of low values but that doesn’t last for long and the ride north can be exhilarating. With a 5.5 V12 forward mounted engine and rear wheel drive enjoyable to own and use as well.
Bentley Turbo R 1985-1997
With its 6.75 Litre V8 turbo engine and vastly improved handling than its predecessor the Mulsanne, I think its great looking and they fast and fun to drive. £500 -£40000 depending on condition history, mileage etc, the later the car the better.
Audi 80 Cabriolet 1992-2002
Good build quality stylish cars with a range of engines, I predict a future classic with true entry level prices from £1000.00
For buying any of these cars research is critical, service history, mot history, provenance and a mechanical inspection is always worthwhile.
