As more and more people "Catch on" to Investments with REAL upside, the traditional Investments are now being left way behind.
We are seeing so many people switching their SMSF funds from property over to Collectible Cars, a trend that began two years ago and has accelerated in recent months.
Fortunately we know the answer to that question, which is why we have moved any likely contenders on !.
As everyone knows, there has been a significant shift in the Collectible Car Investment Market over the past couple of years, and it is great to be right at the cutting edge of the changes. There are new and very exciting cars coming in as some of the older, more difficult to drive cars simply drop in value rapidly.
A well restored Subaru WRX is indeed a car to relish.
Fortunately, we have plenty of GC8 WRX's, now that early versions are becoming very sought after in unmolested original form. As usual, the sky will be the limit with where the values of genuine low km cars go. Just take a look back at the R34 GTR V-Spec's that went from under $60,000 20 months ago to over $200,000 now
Because every single one of them has doubled, tripled, or quadrupled in value.
The evidence is everywhere, although as usual the sceptics will say "it will not last", just as they did with all of the other great Collectible Cars that we purchased that have risen in value at FOUR TIMES the rate of property.
There were just 284 RHD Lotus Carlton's built, and ALL have exploded in value.
Way back in 2016 one of these great cars could be purchased for under £18,000, especially if it had relatively high mileage, as this example does (73,300 miles).
Today, the estimated sale price of more than double the 2016 figure (£40-48,000 or $74-89,000) is far more realistic.
Collectible Cars. The only Investment left with consistent tangible growth.
Up and up they go, just as we predicted.
Often considered a sleeping lion, the 3000 GTO was a true Supercar, with a great Twin Turbo engine, 4WD, 4WS, active climate control, power aero kit front and rear and electric everything. Unlike the local GT, JDM and UK/Europe GTO cars had a 6-speed Getrag transmission (For Gen II and III, with stronger internals and improved ratio's), as well as more power.

Another of the last "real" cars went under the hammer last month.
As part of the Youngtimer Collection Auction, this great car now has a new owner.
The new downward trend has approvals at the lowest for many years.
The Property Crash contiunes unabated, despite a brief respite in March.
With Collectible Car values rising fast, $1.55 Million was paid for an Aston Martin DB5 last month, as Australian auction records were re-written.
A 2017 Nissan Skyline R35 GTR Nismo achieved $237,500, whilst a 2006 Ferrari Superamerica made $510,000. A Porsche 928 GTS achieved $90,000, whilst other Ferrari's came in at solid prices, whilst others were down as we had predicted, along with some descending Porsche's.
Yes, as we always predicted (back in 2016), the property market continues to crash, taking the economy down with it.
There is now no other Investment left with growth anything like that found in the Collectible Car sector.
Ahh, the famous Godzilla.
All the action has been with R34 V-Specs until now, and so the inside information is critical at this interesting time.
Call us now to find out what is happening in the Modern Collectible Market.
Australia is only expected to spend just $104.3 Million on Collectible cars. Here is part of the reason why.
This article asks the key question of why does Australia still have a LCT (Luxury Car Tax) when there is no car industry there, which dramatically increases the cost of importing a Collectible car into Australia.
We have had recent experience of the LCT (33% of the imported car value after $66,331), where the figure paid to the Government was in excess of $1 Million. This news article was written by Just Cars just after last year's Motorclassica event in Victoria, and raises some very interesting points.....
Now that Jaguar XJ220's are worth solid money, two of our Collector friends are cashing in.
As everyone knows, XJ220 values have risen in line with all the other great cars that we purchase, as they were only worth £100,000 or less a few years ago (2015), and now worth 4 times that amount. Thankfully, we purchased one back in 2014 for just £25,000, with a blown engine in lots of pieces in the boot. For many years these cars were completely unloved, although as with Porsche 930 Turbo's, Ferrari 308 GTB's, everybody suddenly remembered them.
As Collectible Car prices continue ever upwards while property goes South, this lovely E-Type epitomises what great Classic Cars are all about.
The Series I 3.8 Litre has always led the way in terms of Collector interest in Jaguar E-Type's, and continues to do so.......
The ONLY Aston Martin DB4GT Continuation in Australia arrived last week.
Supercar Secrets have just brought this magnificent $3,000,000 machine into the country, amid much hype and anticipation. There were originally just 20 cars commissioned with Aston Martin Works in Newport Pagnell in the United Kingdom, although this eventually grew to just 25. This 350 bhp car is one of the initial 20 cars built.
