Classic Cars......The best performer in the collectible market
As David says in this article, "Classic Cars have been the best performer over the medium to long term. Knight Frank’s Luxury Investment Index for 2017, for example, found that cars provided returns of 362%, way ahead of the returns from art (103%)."
Call us NOW to discover the next 58 cars that are about to take off in the next 6 months, and which one's to avoid.
One of the lesser known Classic Car Shows is 10 years old this year
For those that appreciate how rapidly Japanese Classic and Modern Classic Cars are racing up the value charts, here is s show that would be well worth a visit.
Toyota Supra MA71's have risen to almost $50,000 for good example's, following significant growth over recent times
Fortinately we were purchasing MA71's 18 months ago when they were all $2,000. We knew that these lovely cars would see a dramatic rise in 2017/2018, and that rise is now. Call us now to discover how you can purchase Classic Cars BEFORE they rise in value.
The only 4x4 Reliant Scimitar GTE Prototype that exists sells for £13,000 (24,000)
The Reliant Scimitar was always a much under-rated car, given it's credentials, interesting appearance and low build numbers. That said, though, thias one is rather special, as it is the only Ferguson Formula 4 wheel drive version ever built. We believe that the car is worth much more than what was paid on the 21st of last month, althogh time will tell.
Toyota Supra JZA80's now above $100,000, with some at $150,000 (ultra low kms)
The relentless rise of Japanese modern Classics seems to know no bounds. Whilst we purchased as many Japanese cars as we could last year, even we are astounded by the tsunami of great Japanese cars coming onto the Collector Market at such speed. Thankfully we purchased in 2016 and 2017 !!. Most of our cars have now tripled in value since we acquired them.
$650,000 for a Jaguar E-Type Lightweight
A beautiful Jaguar E-Type Lightweight re-creation built by Gavin King at Concours Sportscar Restoration has come up for sale in Sydney.
Mazda RX7 sells for $112,000 in Sydney.
This lovely 1995 Mazda Rx7 SP sold for the appropriate price yesterday...........
A Porsche 930 Turbo, a Lotus Esprit Turbo, a Porsche 944, A Toyota AE86, and lots of great roads.....
Another great social rally event described in perfect detail by Patrick Stevenson aboard a Porsche 930 Turbo that he borrowed from Makellos Classics.
Estimated $700,000 (£500,000) for this rusty barn find 356A
As everyone knows, Porsche 356a's, B's and C's are worth big money.
That said, this 356A GS Carrera does re-define what some people will pay for an early 1500 cc Beetle powered Porsche. We will know the outcome in 4 days time.
1996 Subaru Impreza WRX GC-8 sells for AU$30,000
Last year we were snapping up early WRX's in concours conditon for $15,000. Now they are $30,000.
Call us now to discover how you can capitalise on the Modern Classic's Boom. You have to be in front of the market, not behind.
Toyota Supra JZA80's now above $80,000, as the race to secure great Japanese Modern Classic's continues.
With Nissan Skyline GTR R34 V-Spec Nr's above $200,000, Mazda R100's over $100,000, and Nissan Silvia's now hitting the $35,000 mark, it is very easy to see why many are jumping into these great cars. All have outstanding performance, awesome handling, great reliability, and don't all look the same, as cars do today.
Toyota made some wicked cars in the 1990's and on past 2000. They produced timeless, rounded Classic shapes like the second MR2 (SW20), the Tarago van (the world's first modern, striking people mover), the wonderful Celica (including the rapid 4WD GT4), and of course the sensational Supra, which had arguably the biggest rear wing of it's day. With a 3 Litre Twin Turbo 326 bhp engine, it achieved 0-100 km/hr in just 4.6 seconds.
Mazda R100's now over $100,000
As a continuation of the Australian market's thirst for Japanese Classic Cars, the groundbreaking Mazda R100 is now soaring to new heights. Whilst these cars are rare, we were offered three of these cars at separate times last year for under $18,000 each, and so the appreciation is obvious. This particular example is a completely restored coupe that shows how advanced Mazda were in 1969, by installing a small 982 c.c., 100 bhp version of the famous Wankel engine into the car, labelled the "10A' engine. These cars were capable of 175 kph, and were quicker off the line than several of their contemporaries.
There is another example on sale for $23,000 at present, although this is for the bodyshell alone !.
Almost AU$20,000 for this lovely MX-5 showing 135,000 kms
In line with the massive value rise in selected Japanese models that we have purchased in large quantities, it is now the turn of the humble MX-5. What they lacked in power was certainly balanced with excellent handling, good brakes, accompanied by the fun factor.
A long drive across Europe is always a great way to appreciate a Classic. In this case it is one lovely Datsun.
Whilst 240Z's continue their rise unabated, it is sometimes easy to forget that Datsun had other variants of this great car, that were not so famous. The driving experience seems to lack nothing !.
Will this Aston Martin exceed £16.9 MILLION ?
This wonderful Aston Martin DB4 Zagato is due to be auctioned at Goodwood later this year, and could well become the most expensive British car ever sold. The car is expected to exceed the £16.9 Million paid for another Aston Martin in 2017, and is affectionately known as 2VEV.
