What does 2018 hold for the super and classic car market
Automotive experts expect the supercar and classic car market to stay strong in 2018 and for many years to come. As with all investments, the sooner you purchase an investment vehicle, the better. Acquire one at a good price now, keep it safe, and let its value appreciate.
The key of course is to choose a classic car that will appreciate, or at the very least retain the same value you paid for it. Like most investments, the value of some classic or super cars will hold steady, others will rise in value dramatically.
Consult the experts, keep abreast of all trends, and do a lot of research before you make your choice.
Where are you going to find your investment car – or simply the car you’ve always wanted to own and drive?
Check Supercarsandclassics.com regularly, of course, as it’s the place to be for investing in supercars or classics.
Keep track of the various auction houses, read through their catalogs which are usually online, and attend them on a regular basis if you can to learn from fellow car enthusiasts.
The “major” auctions charge entry fees even if all you want to do is look at the cars on display, but the smaller auctions will welcome you for a minimal entry fee or even for no fee at all.
Here’s just a sample of the supercar and classic car auctions on the horizon – occurring during the first three months of the new year.
