Not all station wagons are equal.
This 1979 500 TE could be one of the exceptions. The car was sold as part of the Essen Techno Classica Auction two days ago, that netted sales of almost AU$30 Million.
As all insiders know, CERTAIN hand-selected Collectible Cars are now rising faster than any other asset class ever.

This Nissan 300 ZX continued the rise of Japanese Collectible Cars last weekend.
As part four of the Youngtimer Collection Auctions took place a few days ago, this Nissan 300 ZX signalled the way ahead for even the less well-loved Japanese Collectible's. As all of our Investor's know, an abundance of VERY low km immaculate 300ZX's were available last year inside our Collector Network for less than $8,000.
Why did we sell almost all of our Ferrari's years ago ?.
Because Ferrari 328 GTS's were priced at £35,800 in July, 2013, and by July, 2015 they were at £71,420, and so had DOUBLED in 2 years. Now they are almost back to the 2013 prices, regardless of how "special" the car might be. This car is one of only 15 Blue Chiaro RHD builds with light grey leather trim, and so it is certainly very rare, and so should have sold higher, despite needing minor work. It did not because over-inflation often occurs with certain Ferrari's.
For the same reason, we also sold most of our 70's Porsche 911's, because the market is always moving on to far more civilised cars that are more advanced. We are always at least 12 months ahead of the market.
There are close to 60 cars that are absolutely booming right now, and so one just has to know what is rising, and what is about to crash. Call us to join in
A perfect example of how the Collectible Car Industry is quite often the reverse of what most people think.
We were involved with the purchase of this beautiful Bentley Continental last weekend at the Classic Car and Restoration Sale in Birmingham. As is so often the case, these cars are just typical of how the market can work the opposite way to most people's mindset. A very nice car for very little money. Call us now to discover what other cars are about to hit the "On" switch.
With Modern Collectible Cars now a part of every Investor's portfolio, Mitsubishi GTO's are one model that just keeps on giving.....
As we have predicted over the past 10 months within all of our News Items, prices of Japanese Supercars have soared, with great cars like the 3000 GT and GTO being carried along in the flow. Whilst the 3000 GT did not benefit from some of the features that the Gen II and Gen III GTO's had, such as the 6 speed Getrag gearbox, they are still fine supercars, with a 3 litre Twin Turbo V6, a great shape, 4WD, 4WS, as well as an aero package. The Gen III's also benefitted from additional power (320 bhp) from the factory, although not too many remain at this figure, with most around 400 bhp obtained by simple tweaks to the 2 wastegate's. Standard cars achieved 0-100 kph in 4.9 secs. As all of our regular readers know, these cars were available last year for a fraction of what they are achieving now. Call us to get in on one of the next 48 boom cars that our Collector contacts are purchasing right now.
With Classic Car interest rising daily, this car rose from £260 new, to £450,000, OR 1,900,000%
The car is a 1936 Bentley that was sold last Wednesday by H & H Classics, and despite having seats that were ripped apart and plenty of rust, was actually largely complete.
Some people seemed a little suprised that great Cooper S sold for solid money
As everyone knows, Mini Cooper S's sell for up to £45,000 (AU$83,000) in the United Kingdom, and so the new owner will be well ahead if he finds someone like us to carry out the restoration for him. As with everything, once one pulls the layers from the onion, one begins to understand the value.........This a 1965 car, making it a Mark I, and so that is part of the story.
As we predicted in our News Items and Blogs on July the 15th, 2016, in 2017, July the 23rd, 2018 and November the 27th, 2018), the drop is here !..............with another 25-30% to go, whilst Classic Cars boom, as they always have done.
We sold ALL of our extensive property holdings at the close of 2017, although many did not, hanging on to "the dream". We then purchased significant numbers of Classic and Modern Classic Cars and will now sit back and watch then double and triple in value in the short term. It is that simple when selecting correct cars. Please feel free to join us whenever you like.
As property, bank returns and the stock market all DROP month by month, savvy Investors are turning to assets that RISE in value instead.
Yes, now that all the smart Investors understand that there is a global downturn around the corner, it is time to leave the traditional investments behind, and get into the fastest growing new asset classes. Get in now whilst this industry is still relatively new in Australia.
A beautiful 105 series Guilia Sprint GTA sold last month for over half a million dollars
This great car was later upgraded to Stradale spec by Mario Pietriella, after it became a part oif his collection. The Peraluman panels gave a resultant weight of just 740kg, and so the 115 bhp engine propels this car well. There is no substitute for low weight coupled to a modest power plant.
As the prices of BMW 840's and 850's rise rapidly, this beautiful Lot 123 example did well at last month's Paris Retromobile Auction, despite the 46,000 kms.
As we all know, 1980's and 1990's Modern Classics are gaining traction fast. Just 2 years ago Australian BMW 840's were under $16,000, with 850's at just over $20,000. A quick look at today's Carsales website tells us that the lowest 840 is now $26,500, and the highest 850 is $77,000, with NONE of them being the much sought after CSi variant, which of course was almost never seen in Australia.
It is now just a question of which great car is next to take off. Call us to find out now.
Yes, as we always said, Supra Twin Turbo's would reach AU$200,000, and now they have gone WELL PAST that. We were purchasing Supra TT JZA80's for under AU$20,000 2 years ago.
The rise of certain Japanese Modern Classic Cars is HERE NOW. Find out how you can get into this boom, before it is too late, and you say " I was gonna buy a Modern Classic Car". As with all boom cars, they rise and then stop, and another make and model takes over. While some classic Ferrari's and Porsche's are now going backwards, there are new kids on the block.......
As with all of these cars, each one has to be carefully selected by ticking 56 separate boxes, or a similar car could be worthless. Supra's are particularly difficult to get 100% correct.
This Peugeot 205 Gti 1.9 sold for $42,000 (£22,960) last weekend, a rise of 1500 % since 2016.
As we all know, the 205 Gti prices have been rising and rising for three years now, although NOT this one. It has always been the 'original" 1.6 litre car that has made all the progress, until now. Despite this example being only moderate with regard to mileage and condition, previous ownership was the key here. There is another Peugeot that is just about to take off. Call us to find out which one. We are currently purchasing plenty of them.
As Axius Holdings and other mainstream Hedge Funds get into Classic Cars, new buildings are popping up to house the acquisitions.
As BNY Mellon Wealth Management in Atlanta has said ""It’s gone from people wanting to have the great contemporary art collection or collecting wine to what we’re seeing now: rich people are going after cars."
