Classic sportcars are fun to drive, a way of life, and considered as a form of art. It should, however, not be ignored that they have also provided solid returns over time. Over a period of 60 years they almost continuously increased in value. Over the last 10 years prime cars, especially from the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, have outpaced other asset classes.
This is a trend that has been evidenced by independent investment researchers HAGI, publishing monthly data to measure and track values of the rare and collectable car market (www.historicautomobilegroup.com). In addition the, K500 guide is publishing a car collectability rating that can go up to a maximum score of 100 points (www.K500.com). As a rule of thumb it could be concluded that cars with a collectability rating > 60 points have the potential to increase in value overtime.
