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.
FINANCIAL REVIEW news article summarises what we have been saying since 2016, as property heads down, down, down..........
When the Financial Review comments on any money matters in Australia, the country listens. This article states exactly where we are at in the cycle, and where we are heading.....
Move to an asset class now that enjoys significant growth.
As we predicted many times, there are new kids on the block in the Collectible Car space.
Now that Supra T.T's are unreachable for many people due to their meteoric rise in value, some are even looking at the Type M R32.............
There are another 49 great Collectible cars that are just about to take off and explode in value. Call us now to find out which cars they are, and how you can make money from each and every one of them. This market is NOT about old people messing around with old cars from the 1950's..............
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 news article by Money Magazine from earlier this year highlights the facts of Collectible Car Investment, when the correct cars are selected. Call now to secure you're Investment.
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.
