We focus on various passion investment segments, including high end automotive, fashion, music, film, media & entertainment.
“As I started to buy cars, I didn’t know that I was building a collection. I just wanted the cars I was dreaming about. Once you have a good one, it’s like having a fever” — Ralph Lauren
The classic art of Special Coachbuilding has been revived in a spectacular way, thanks to a growing number of wealthy collectors again commissioning their very own unique sports- or luxury car. These limited-series and one-off cars evoke the memories and values of the glorious past when automotive icons were created by independent designers and coachbuilders like Pininfarina, Scaglietti, Drogo, Giugiaro, Touring, Vignale, Zagato, Saoutchik and Figoni & Falaschi. Many of these classic automotive artworks represent the top of the present collectors market. The renewed interest in special coachbuilt cars and cars produced in limited-series resulted in today’s high-end market segment thriving in an unprecedented way.
Passion Investors sources unique investment opportunities in the high-end automotive market (blue chips, coachbuilds, limited series), mediating between ventures and investors.
Passion Investors has e.g. been exclusively mandated by Vandenbrink Design for their Special Coachbuilding ‘Vandenbrink GTO’ investment case. See portfolio.
Passion Investors has been mandated by Minotto Cars to support their Minotto V12 Barchetta business case through consultancy and financing.
