Future classic cars – Nine used SUVS that could soar in value revealed

Classic cars can be a worthwhile investment which will retain and even increase in value over time. Some low volume, unique and exclusive vehicles obviously are sound busy such as the Aston Martin DB5 but they can command a price tag of as much as £1,000,000. 

For some, they may seem like investments for the uber rich but new research argues the contrary. Car experts at automotive data company Cap HPI have picked nine used SUVs which have the potential to become future collector’s items. 

“There is an SUV for everyone,” Senior valuations editor Mark Bulmer told Autocar. 

“Some of these SUVs are already highly sought after, and in several cases, customisation options plus performance and reliability is affirming their future classic status.”

Land Rover Defender

The Land Rover Defender is an iconic vehicle which was put out of production a number of years ago. However, the Defender, which is already considered a classic to many, is returning at the end of 2019.

As a result, there has been a surge in interest for older examples of the vehicles. Prices for the car start at £5,000 for weather-worn variants and decently cared for cars go for around £10,000-£15,000. However, the experts at Cap HPI suggest that some of the most well-maintained models can go for £75,000.

Jeep Wrangler 

The Wrangler is another boxy off-road icon, much like the Defender. It is rugged, tough and cable in most terrains. It also looks like a sought over vehicle as pristine models sell for as much as £75,000. Prices do vary across the various generations of the car with some selling for £5,000 and other going for between £12,000 and £14,000.

Porsche Macan 

Sporty by design and by performance, the Macan is a bit of a powerhouse and being attached to the Porsche brand, renowned for their handling and driving experience it’s never going to be a budget vehicle. It’d hard to look past the obvious appeal for the car which is why the car commands prices for between £30,000 and £75,000. The most sought desirable models are the petrol Macan Turbos and will be attached to the biggest price tags. 

Range Rover Sport SVR

Another sports-focused SUV with a supercharged 5.8-litre V8 engine under the bonnet putting out 542bhp. It balances speed, off-road ability, and interior luxury perfectly making it a desirable vehicle. 

Already these cars come with a high asking price with £50,000 been a typical price to pay for one. Prices up to £150,000 are also heard of for the sports SUV. 

Toyota Land Cruiser 

The Land Cruiser is a complete workhorse and can keep going and going when other cars would’ve given in. Older and high mile models can start for around £3,000 but there are some variants that can fetch around £50,000.

Volvo XC70

This SUV/Estate car hybrid vehicle is one of the more unusual on this list. These are two segments that Volvo knows well and makes great cars in them including the XC90 and V90 Cross Country. Volvo’s are also some of the safest on the road, making his vehicle inherently more appealing to families. 

Prices range from around £2,000 but some models can fetch around £20,000. 

Suzuki Jimmy 

Quirky, unusual and tiny, the Jimmy is a bit of a cult classic. It’s certainly an acquired taste but the part off-roader, part road car can fetch above £14,000 in some circumstances but some versions cost around £1,000

Toyota RAV4

Toyotas are renowned for their reliability which is why there are no surprises that a second SUV form the Japanese firm makes the list. Prices for the car can go from between £1,000 and £35,000 for some the newer models. 

Dacia Duster 

The Duster is the cheapest new SUV on sale in the UK. It’s cheap to buy and budget by nature but it has proved to be fairly reliable and doesn’t depreciate quite as fast as some of its peers. 

Prices for the car range between £5,000 and £14,000.

Classic And Used Cars Are Falling Victim To US Trade War

RICHMOND, Calif., July 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — The trade war between the United States and Europe may lead to severe repercussions for car enthusiasts worldwide. While the trade war is aimed at new car manufacturers, it’s one classic car and even used car buyers worldwide can fall victim to.

Classic cars are traded on a global scale by dealers, auctions, and private collectors. Low import duties on classics, along with record low ocean shipping rates, allow automotive enthusiasts to purchase cars from overseas with ease.

The US is one of the largest sources of cars popular with classic car enthusiasts. According to data provided by Piers, there are over 35,000 classic cars exported from the US each year in containers. Everything from American classics like the Mustang and the Camaro, to European sports cars like the Porsche 911 are exported from the US. Just in the US, auctions sold $1.31B worth of classics in 2017.

Open trade benefits classic car owners on each side by making it easy to purchase and sell, increasing the value and preserving the very special examples. The recently proposed import duty of 25% will be met with a reciprocal 25% in Europe, essentially removing foreign buyers from US and European markets. The end result will be that collectors on both side of the Atlantic will see less demand for their cars.

By definition, classic cars were manufactured decades ago, and there are no manufacturers on either side who want to limit their imports. If anything, manufacturers want the surviving cars to find a collector’s home so that they can be preserved for the future. 

There is even a larger problem for modern used cars. According to Piers, used US car exports in 2017 outnumbered imports 4 to 1. This is one of the markets where US has a huge trade advantage, and there are many reasons for it. Americans tend to lease their cars and Europeans tend to own their cars. When leases are up, overseas buyers, including Europe purchase many of the used cars, driving up demand, increasing residual values, and essentially subsidizing the US auto lease market.

Therefore, including used cars in this trade war will also reverse the positive export advantage, and has a potential to spike US car lease rates.

However, there may be another approach. German automakers have announced a proposal to abolish import duties on vehicle imports between the EU and the US. This would be a win-win for both sides. American cars will become more affordable in Europe, used post-lease cars will help to keep lease rates lower, and classic car enthusiasts will exchange their dream cars as if they were attending the same car show without an ocean in between.

Classic-car sales stall

1956 Aston Martin © Sotheby'sThe Aston Martin DBR1: yours for $22.5m

Classic cars have left other “passion plays”, such as wine, art and stamps, in the dust over the past decade. Since 2005, their value has risen by 332%, according to the Coutts Passion index. The Knight Frank Luxury index puts the growth even higher, at 362% since 2007. Coins came a distant second for Coutts, having risen in value by 225%, while wine took Knight Frank’s silver medal with 231% growth.

However, both luxury indices agree on one crucial aspect: classic cars have now hit a bump in the road. In retrospect, the market began to sputter in 2015. Last year, the value of the average classic car fell by 10.4%, according to Coutts. Knight Frank’s assessment was more generous, recording 2% growth, but even this was much lower than in 2015. So what’s going on?

First of all, it’s important to note that, like all collectable assets, the classic-car market is highly illiquid. The cars in the index sell relatively rarely and, unlike a Tesco share for example, every one is different and you can never really be sure of their value until a sale is in the bag.

For example, the market appeared in fine fettle as recently as August, when a 1956 Aston Martin DBR1 became the most expensive British car ever sold at auction, fetching $22.5m. And the record for the most expensive car overall was only set three years ago, when a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO Berlinetta sold for an equally headline-grabbing $38.1m. Yet, in a wider test of the market’s health this month, half of the 71 lots at a Sotheby’s classic-car auction in Battersea, London, failed to find buyers.

“It’s a change from the grease-monkey generation to the high-tech generation… The courtship and love affair with old cars is dying,” Philip Warner of the Car and Classic website tells Graeme Paton in The Times. The other culprit, notes Paton, is what drove the market higher in the first place: “the increase in demand for collectables is believed to have been driven by the economic slump, as the super-rich pumped their millions into investments that would offer the greatest chance of huge returns”.

With the wider economy now healthier, investors are looking elsewhere, as Dietrich Hatlapa of investment researcher Historic Automobile Group International tells car magazine Evo: “Those who were in it just for the money have moved on. The market is now more in the hands of the collectors and specialists, which I think is good news for the real enthusiast.”

But not everyone thinks the market has entirely run out of fuel. After “a long period of sustained growth”, as Mohammad Kamal Syed, Coutts’ managing director, tells Paton, the market is probably “taking a bit of a breather”. Just don’t expect it to hit the fast lane anytime soon.

Tomorrow’s classics

If you don’t have a couple of million lying around to spend on a classic car, don’t despair. Instead, you could set your eye on a potential future classic. Buy the right car today (it doesn’t have to be a Ferrari), look after it properly, and in time, you could make yourself a tidy sum, says Telegraph.co.uk. The website looked at the 20 “cheap” cars most likely to appreciate in the coming years. Here are three models to keep an eye on:

“One of the most profoundly French cars of recent years, the Citroen C6, is one of our favourites,” says Telegraph.co.uk. “It’s pretty rare – we think there are just over 600 on British roads – but therein lies its potential as a future classic.”

Price: £3,000 to £15,000

Just 500 Trophy Renault Sport Clio 182s were built for the UK market. The special edition model is also regarded as one of the “greatest hot hatches of all time”, which means there are “two good reasonswhy values should soar in years to come”.

Price: £4,000 to £6,000

The Japanese Lexus LS400 was “a wake-up call” to European manufacturers when it was released, matching the “big German flagships for comfort and refinement”. The first two generations of the LS span the 1990s, “so you should be able to find one that suits your budget”.

Price: £1,000 to £8,000

Auctions

Going…

An epic auction of Audrey Hepburn’s personal effects was held on Wednesday at Christie’s in London, alongside an online sale, which runs until 3 October.

Gone…

Actress Vivien Leigh’s belongings went under the hammer on Tuesday.
