The debate over what classic car to buy really does come down to personal choice and budget. Who for example would not love an E-Type Jaguar, a Ford Cosworth 500 or a Mk II Jaguar? The problem is that those cars cost a lot of money. The upside is that the value of these cars is escalating at a rapid rate.

This gives you two bonuses, firstly the joy of driving something special and satisfying. Secondly your money is invested into an asset that should give you a great return. Of course this also has conditions, the car needs to be a good example or you will need to renovate it. Then you need to look after it otherwise its condition and value will erode and depreciate.

Sought After Cars

Then there is the lucky star car – the car that comes into the category of ‘sought after’. This is where you can make serious money on a well made choice. To those who are not classic car experts this is a slightly different category where watching market trend can pay dividends. 

My last performance car was one of the last Porsche 911 Turbo S convertibles. I bought it for £46k with 20k miles on the clock. I drove it for 2 years before selling it with another 30k miles on the clock. Guess what I sold the Porsche for……… amazingly £46k so I had pretty much two years depreciation free driving and 30k of extra mileage.

The downside? Well I should of spotted that the demand trend for this model was rising and just 3 years later the same car would be worth £80k. With no sign of this demand abating what will it be worth on another 3 years if the mileage is kept low and the car well serviced? 

So difficult to call but had I been aware of this phenomenon then I would of kept the car as an investment with low miles.
