THE FINER THINGS


COUTTS PASSION INDEX 2017 RETURNS SINCE 2005 (in local currency and adjusted for costs) COUTTS INDEX TROPHY PROPERTY


After rebounding strongly following the recession, Billionnaire Property and Leisure Property have both delivered modest returns in recent years.


PRECIOUS ITEMS


The good oil: which car? The Coutts Passion Index is helpful in determining which makes and models hold value as it tracks no less than 10 classic cars. All the models in the index have


increased in price since 2005, when Coutts started collating the data, but the most successful have been the Ferrari 250 GT SWB California, Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta, and Ferrari 275 GTB/4. “Ferrari is the power brand for


classic investment and my maxim is always, ‘If you can afford a Ferrari, always buy a Ferrari’,” says David Hayhow, sales executive at Joe Macari of London. “Across the other marques, each


tends to have at least one, sometimes two or three, classic road models that are ultra-rare and worthy of a blue chip collection, but the best and most valuable collections are always dominated by Ferraris.”


Classic Watches prices have recovered in recent years to stand at over double their 2005 level, but are 10% lower than their 2012 peak. Jewellery reached a new high 2016 and is up 150% since 2005.


COLLECTIBLES


Classic Cars have provided the healthiest return since 2005, with average prices rising more than fourhold. However, after increasing rapidly in 2013 and 2014, returns for Classic Cars fell in both 2015 and 2016.

The most valuable lot of the sale was the exquisite '2 VEV,' the ex-Essex Racing Stable, 1961 Aston Martin 'MP209' DB4GT Zagato which went under the hammer for £10.1 million ($13.2 million), making it the most valuable British car ever sold at European auction. It sold in the room to a European buyer.


The Aston Martin DB5 has the priceless cachet of being the sports saloon James Bond 007 drives. The former-Eon Productions car driven by Pierce Brosnan as Bond in GoldenEye (1995) beat its $1.6 million to $1.9 million estimate and at Goodwood sold for $2.6 million. The buyer was SPYSCAPE, a New York-based espionage museum and experience.
