As Collectible Car prices skyrocket, this great Lotus Cortina becomes part of the rush to buy the real deal.
Now more than ever it is vital to secure the genuine, real deal cars that nobody else has. For many years now we have been purchasing the only cars with massive capital growth upside, that are equally the most original examples, well before they boom in value and double or triple in value.
The large and heavy Audi 200 Quattro was part of the new Group A era that began in 1987, gaining a place at the Acropolis Rally that year.
This car has had quite a history though, and has travelled the world, as Hannu Mikola had done throughout his career.
As we all know, we are in a Collectible Car Market boo.
This article from Motoriious galvanises that statement, despite showing value rises at below one tenth of what we achieve.
Up and up the values go, as portfolio's build.
Everyone is getting into the Collectible Car Market, now that it has become the fastest rising asset class.
Now, even one of Australia's leading Financial Publications is getting into the action.....

As a sign of the massive rise of certain selected Collectible Japanese cars, this recent auction result shows how far we have come in a few months.
Whilst this great example of a Spirit R FD RX-7 is somewhat special, it is only reflective of a market where special Nissan R32 GT-R's are selling for over $280,000, with "ordinary" Australian delivered examples selling for $175,000 and more. We are now seeing a great number of our Japanese Investment Cars selling for 3 to 4 times what we paid for them 18 months ago, and so we are well into this latest boom now, with more to come for certain makes and models.
As we all know, the Australian Collectible Car boom is on.
Whilst ALL of our cars are doubling or tripling in value over very small timeframes, it is still great to see that the good old Range Rover's just keep on giving. That is probably why we have so many total restorations in our factories right now.
Clearly only a person that is living under a rock would deny that the boom that is happening, and so if you wish to purchase the correct vehicles that are yet to be discovered as investments, and are mostly overseas, call now.
Just how can we be so far ahead with our investment portfolio ?.
Simply put, nobody else puts the time and effort into studying the trends in Collectible Cars like we do. Sure, we know all of the cars that will rise dramatrically over the next 6-12 months, although what we do is so much more than that.
Let's take this recent News Article from MSN Motoring.
We purchased two R34 GT-R V-Spec II Nr's similar to the one in the article just 26 months ago. We acquired one in the United Kingdom, and one in Australia. We paid $87,700 for one car, and $92,000 for the other example. One was sold to a Collector contact in May, 2020 for $470,000, and the other is about to sell for much more. That said, our prices are still a far cry from one R34 GT-R V-Spec II Nr that we are aware of that sold in Victoria earlier this year for almost $600,000, which is far in excess of the $500,000 mentioned in the MSN article...............we are ALREADY there !.
So why is the Market so slow to catch us up ?.
Well, firstly any market takes time to record the prices that are being paid. Only time will allow the data to be recorded, and for a trend to emerge. It is only AFTER this time that the prices become news.
We know which cars will move upwards and when, and so we do not have to wait for data to confirm what we already know. We have already purchased, restored and sold our cars well before the make and model of Collectible becomes news.
How do we know the cars to invest in ?.
We intuitively know which cars are going to boom, although our hundeds of hours spent with our Collector contacts makes the difference, because they all become fixated on the same car at the same time, and then up, up and away goes the price !. It is no suprise to us when all of our hard work makes cars like the one featured in this article are FINALLY revealed to be booming.
As all our Investors know, we were out purchasing JDM GT-R's for $20,000 2 years ago......
Way back in 2019, there were several JDM GT'R's around for us to avail oursleves of, as well as a few of the 100 cars imported into Australia by Nissan that we acquired for $50-58,500.
Now in 2021, both versions of our cars are worth 5 times the price that we paid just 24 months ago, although the growth will stop now. Once again, there is nothing that we have ever seen that surpasses Collectible Cars for Investment growth over such a tiny amount of time.
The myth of these great cars has always lived on, although not so much has been written about them.
Anyone that has had an interest in either Rallying or Racing would know these cars well, as they were prominent in the late1970's and 1980's. with such greats as Russell Brookes and Tony Pond behind the wheel.
The boom in the values of our Investment Cars continues...............
As reported on page 17 of the March, 2021 issue of Thoroughbred and Classic Cars, all of our cars have risen in value yet again, galvanising the fact that we are in a Boom once again. Whilst much of Russ's report relates to the United Kingdom market, values have actually risen much more significantly in Australia. As we all know, the secret with Collectible Car Investing is to purchase WELL BEFORE the rise begins, which is why we purchase cars for our Investors 6-9 months before they hit the news.
Whilst it is interesting to see that other variations of Range Rover have now seen value gains, the usual drop from several cars with famous badges has contnued as we have predicted many, many times, which is why we move them on well BEFORE they drop. Here are the statistics over the past 3 months, as reported in the magazine :
The rising Collectible Cars
BMW 633/628 Csi Up 20%
Fiat 130 Coupe Up 15%
Range Rover 4.2 LSE Up 33%
Mercedes 560 SL Up 15%
It is of course too late to capitalise on the values of these cars, as they will now stop growing, and so we move on into the next 66 great Collectible Investment Cars that will boom in 6 months time.
The dropping Collectible Cars
Bentley S1 Continental Down 8.7%
Alfa Romeo 2600 Sprint Down 2.1%
Lamborghini Countach LP400S Down 5.9%
Porsche 911 Turbo (996) Down 7.2%
Call us now to discover which cars will rise in value over the next 6 months.
This news item from Unique Cars Magazine explains one part of the explosion in the value of Classic Cars.
As we have reported many times recently, we are now into "boom" territory, especially with the cars that we invest in, which are NOT Australian built cars. The reason for that is simple...........Australian Collectible Cars appeal to 17.5% of the 25 Million or so people that reside within the continent. The Collectible Cars that we invest in appeal to 27.1% of the Global population of 7.7 Billion. Whilst a boom and bust will definitely occur with Australian Cars as has occurred some years back, our Investment cars will just keep on growing, as they always have, WHEN exactly the correct make, model and options are chosen.
Call now to get in on this meteoric rise in prices.
Here is what occurred with Ford Falcon GTHO some years back, whilst our cars continued rising :
The Duke of Edinburgh was Queen Elizabeth the Second's stellar Consort, as well as being a loving husband and father.
We join the world today in offering our condolences to all of the Royal family at this difficult time.
Prince Philip passing was annonuced awat at 12 p.m. Friday the 9th of April, 2021.
It has happened again.
As this great News Item from The Australian newspaper says "At the premium end of the collectible car market, prices are running at almost twice the national average property price of $550,000".
We are very, very clearly well into a boom scenario here in Australia, and so now is the time to invest in exactly the correct Collectible Car, that ticks all of the 58 requirements that include make, model, trim, colour, trim and transmission option etc, etc.
As all of our Investors know, many, many Porsche's rise and then fall, as they become overpriced. The 930 Turbo was a great example, as we were purchasing the car known as "The Widowmaker" for $45-75,000 in 2016, before they rose to an eye-watering $600,000 in Australia. Now anyone can purchase a great 930 for $220,000 (Unless it is an unmolested '76/'77 3 Litre).............a loss of almost $400,000 !. That is why we never hold Porsche's for very long. There would be a few Widows around that may do the job that the car was famed for !.
Our collection of Lotus's is rising in value so fast now that we can't keep up !
As we have said so many times on this website, the Collectible Car Industry is all about having the inside knowledge of which makes and models to buy, and when. We began purchasing Esprit's a few years back for not much, and now look at their values. ALL of our other cars have done exactly the same thing. Get in now before Collectible Car become like Australian property !.
Whilst there are not the usual 300 or so Collectible Car events, 44 is a good start for the United Kingdom....
The U.K. has suffered a huge setback with the Covid restrictions throughout 2020, although now things are looking up for 2021.
Enjoy these great events !.........
