Top 15 clas­sic climbers re­vealed

Thought ev­ery­thing cooled off in 2014? Th­ese rebels prove not

Classic Cars (UK) - - Chasing Cars -

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.

Porsche 924 Tur­bos bought circa 2014 are boast­ing the re­turns hedge fund man­agers can only dream of
