But in comparison with the values of such luxury assets, classic cars have provided the healthiest returns since 2005, with average prices rising more than fourfold, according to the 2017 edition of the Coutts Passion Index. Sure, classic cars saw a short-term drop of 10.4% in 2016, but they are still the top performing asset, up 332%, over the 12 years captured by the Coutts report. The Knight Frank Luxury Investment Index on classic cars in the first quarter of 2018 says the slowdown from turbo- charged double-digit growth of recent years is largely because speculative investors have left the market. The really knowledgeable and shrewd collectors remain and they are still prepared to dig deep when they find a car they really want. Classic cars are also expected to increase as a desirable asset class in China and the Middle East. And let’s not forget, the appeal of vintage vehicles is not just financial, it’s emotional. What other passion investment gets hearts pounding and heads turning quite like being behind the wheel of your own Aston Martin, Lamborghini or Porsche?

Under the bonnet: where to begin


There’s a lot to think about when it comes to investing in that first magnificent motor. Insurance, transportation, event showcasing, storage, maintenance, and estate planning should be front of mind, says James Haithwaite, client services director and classic car expert at First Names Group.


“Buy the best you can afford, but equally do ensure the necessary due diligence is


completed and the car’s mechanical


condition is checked before a purchase is


made,” Haithwaite says. CAMPDENFB.COM 93
