5 Cars That Will Be Valuable Classics

1. Ford GT

Since this beauty came out in 2005, it has actually gone up in value!  For a car to do that in 7 years is nearly unheard of.  The GT (built by Ford as a 100 year anniversary present to itself)  respectfully pays homage to the legendary GT40 that dominated the racing circuits of the late 60's.   The timeless design and exclusivity of the car have greatly contributed to it's current market value of $200,000.  It is one of the last, or maybe even the last, true raw supercar.  It only came with a manual, it had tons of power, and it isn't over computerized with traction control, launch control, or electronic differentials.  I got a spirited ride in one a few years ago and I can tell you that it is really, really fast.

2.  Lamborghini Countach

Yes this car is already a classic but I will predict that in the next 5 years, Countach prices will triple.  This was the supercar that defined an era and one that still influences supercars today.  It's powerful design changed the way all exotic cars were created.  Once the generation that always wanted one when they were kids makes enough money to actually get one, prices will skyrocket.  This has already happened with Miura values.  In 2000 someone bought the Lamborghini Miura SV Prototype for $178,000 and sold it in 2010 for $1,700,000.  I think the same thing will eventually happen to the Countach.

3.  Porsche Carrera GT

Porsche people are crazy.  They will pay through the nose for a Porsche that is unusual at all.  I know someone that just turned down a $1,200,000 offer on his 356 Carrera GT Speedster with a 4 cam engine even though a regular Speedster in equivalent condition only costs $200,000.  The Carrera GT was one of the best looking and best performing Porsches ever made. It was an absolutely brilliant car.  Their prices have significantly gone down since they were new but in 10 years I think they will starting to go way up.  The 959 is starting to shoot up in value currently.

4.  Pagani Zonda

The exotic looks and extreme rarity of the Zonda will definitely make it a future classic.  Even the 1999 Zonda C12 looks completely modern today.  Like a 1930's Bugatti, every piece of the Zonda is a work of art.  The interior is decked out with carbon fiber, polished aluminum, and wood.  No car on the road has craftsmanship like this one.

5.  Maybach

The Maybach will become a classic but probably not any time soon.  The Maybach was significantly rarer than the equivalent Bentleys and Rolls Royces.  It's absurd price tag kept production numbers low so seeing one on the street is fairly rare.  Even thought Mercedes charged so much for the car, they still lost money on every one built.  It was made to be the most luxurious car in the world and I think Mercedes achieved it's goal.

A brilliant piece of knowledge, appreciate your sincerity to share such thoughts. If we went by not too long just a decade ago, would not be able to find such vastness in information especially related to the healthcare matters. Only General physicians nearby can discourse best words on medical wisdom back then.
