Invest today in tomorrow’s classic cars Future classics that could make for attractive investments

Alternative assets

There is no guaranteed profit in investing in classic cars and there can be substantial medium-term losses if the purchase takes place at the particular model’s apex of desirability, as we have seen at the classic car auctions over the last twelve months where very highly estimated lots have been failing to reach anywhere near their reserve price.

If you would like to invest in classic cars with a low exposure to market judders and changing sentiment, I recommend buying tomorrows classics. These cars must of course have some intrinsic attractive qualities, beauty or extreme performance along with some element of limited supply.

Most of the hugely expensive classic cars were once unloved, undesirable and valued at a fraction of their purchase price and a much smaller fraction of the heady prices they command in today’s market.

I have listed below a small selection of models that I believe are at the lowest point of their depreciation cycle, but have the qualities of becoming future valuable objects of desire.

Aston Martin DB9 Coupe and Volante production 2004-2009

Stunning looking genuine supercar, with current prices between £28,000.00 – £50,000.00

Parts and servicing are very expensive and electrics in the earlier cars are temperamental.

The DB9’s predecessor the DB7 have appreciated in value over the past few years and it lacks both the build integrity and the looks of the DB9.
