Top 15 classic climbers revealed
Thought everything cooled off in 2014? These rebels prove not
The received wisdom from many market commentators is that the classic market hit its peak in late 2014. And that is largely true at the very top end of the market, where super-rich collectors deal in seven- or eight-figure sums. But at a lower level a large proportion of classic cars have actually continued to rise in value since then, in some cases by considerable amounts. Taken as a percentage, we found 14 classics that have actually more than doubled in value, with our ‘winner’, the Porsche 924 Turbo, trebling in price during that period. In fact three of the top five are Porsches, which is no surprise given the growth of interest in the marque.
Lamborghini also seems to have benefitted from growing factory support for its heritage. And it’s good to see some former boy-racer Eighties favourites in there, such as the Ford Capri and Peugeot 205 GTI.
