Remember when EVO 6.5 Makinen's were $28,000 ?,.......then they were $65,000, and NOW over $160,000.

Then and Now, and WHY we invest in Collectible Cars

A few years back we reported on the dramatic rise in the values of Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 6.5 Makinens. We mentioned that we had purchased plenty of these cars for under $30,000 at that time. Now they are all over $150,000 with some touching $200,000, and whilst this is low compared to our great FQ examples, it still represents a good gain.  That is why we only invest in specific target cars.

Now we are onto the next group of cars with greater gains in them.

A 308 GTB Vetroresina is coming up for sale.

by ANGEL SERGEEV for MOTOR 1 | June 29, 2023

 

A 308 GTB Vetroresina is coming up for sale.

The most valuable Ferrari 308 GTB was made from fibreglass.............

One of the 712 Ferrari 308 GTB's with a fibreglass body is coming up for sale at Sotheby's.

It is SO interesting that Colin Chapman's original concept with all Lotus cars to "add lightness" occasionally spread to other manufacturers that wanted to build low weight proper performance cars. Whilst the 308 GTB Vetroresina is really only sought after for it's "early build in low numbers" status, almost ALL Lotus cars went on to be renowned for being the ultimate drivers cars.

And that is why we have so many Lotus cars. They have been undervalued for a long time, although the smart investors are now catching on, and this prospective sale of a Vetroresina will only enhance the demand for properly built race cars for the road that give the biggest buzz when driven.

SOLD for $1.12 MILLION. A Ford Sierra Cosworth RS500

by CARS UK | June 24, 2023

 

SOLD for $1.12 MILLION. A Ford Sierra Cosworth RS500

Earlier this year a Ford Sierra Cosworth RS500 sold..................for over $1 Million.

In a sign of things to come, these "Fast Fords" in the United Kingdom are similar to "Fast Japs" down in Australia. One just needs to know which ones to invest in.

The investor in this Cossie certainly got it right, because the sale prices for RS500's just five years ago were just $230,000.

That is a gain of almost $1 MILLION from a Ford in under 5 years.

THAT is why we invest in SPECIFIC Collectible Cars.............

At AU$320,000, a new benchmark for Lotus Esprit V8 Twin Turbo values is reached

by BRING A TRAILER | June 18, 2023

 

At AU$320,000, a new benchmark for Lotus Esprit V8 Twin Turbo values is reached

Lotus Esprit V8 Twin Turbo's reach new heights

We have always been discussing the amazing Lotus Esprit V8 twin Turbo's since we began investing in them several years ago. We have reported on their rise up the charts of Investment Success, and this low mileage example assists in their rise towards the more realistic pricing of more than $400,000. At the time of production these awesome machines were sometimes compared with the Ferrari F355, which of course they are far, far superior to. As anyone that has driven these cars (properly) knows, the sheer lateral grip levels and braking that can be achieved with these race cars on the road is nothing short of eyewatering.

Rowan Atkinson discovers the truth about Electric Cars

 

Rowan Atkinson discovers the truth about Electric Cars

There has been much written about Electric Cars, although after purchasing an EV 9 years ago, Rowan Atkinson has finally learned the truth

We have always maintained that Electric Vehicles are only a temporary band aid solution, and now the chorus of agreeing voices grows louder. Whilst EV's offer a reasonable solution around cities, they are very restricted across longer distances, where an alternative to petrol for powering internal combustion engines is a far more realistic.

We recall growing up in London and seeing the electric milk floats that delivered milk for up to 3 hours, before they returned to base to be recharged. Now, in 2023, EV's will run for the same time as they did then !.

This article reminds us that Volvo stated that the CO2 emissions from manufacturing an Electric Car were 70% higher than that of a petrol powered car in 2021.
