THE FINER THINGS


Interest in Mercedes-Benz accelerated


in 2017 while some of the rarer Alfa Romeos, limited edition Porsches and specialist Aston Martins, such as the Vantage and those with manual gearboxes, are in demand. Thorn says investors were interested


in acquiring classic Aston Martins, in particular the slightly undervalued DB6 model compared to the earlier DB5 and DB4. While the Italian market ebbs and flows over time, Mercedes Benz models from the 1950s are in demand. Porsche 911 classic cars increased


almost eight-fold—683%—in value in the past 13 years, according to Suedwestbank’s OTX Classic Car Index of premium vehicles made in the bank’s heartland of luxury car manufacturers in southern Germany. However, Haithwaite warns the

headline increase in value for a particular marque can be misleading. For example, Porsche has, overall, increased in value substantially over the years, but not all models have increased at the same pace, he says. “In 1994, a 1973 911 2.7 RS was

1950s and 1960s, Aston Martin, Ferrari, Porsches, Maserati and Mercedes-Benz, were the “blue chip selection” until 2015, says Florian Seidl, founder and president of the independent collection manager Carficiando in Germany. “All of a sudden the newer


generation is starting to come in and we find late 1980s and early 1990s sports and racing cars are going very strong,” Seidl says. “We used to call it the ‘new money
