Ups and downs: winners and losers in the 2018 classic car market

Classic & Sports Car Logo By Chris Rowlands of Classic & Sports Car | Slide 1 of 20: How do you find out which classic cars make the best investments? Well one way is to consult specialist insurer Hagerty’s Price Guide – and its latest update makes for very interesting reading.

Since 2015, the firm has been tracking the risers and fallers of the classic car world with its Classic Index, which monitors private sales, auction results and more in order to accurately reflect the market. 

The latest data was published today, and is packed with insight. For example, if we’d known that a Mazda MX-5 1.6i would be worth 8.5% more now than in April, we’d have ploughed all of our pennies into Japanese drop-tops.


Similarly, if we’d had any idea that a Ferrari 308GTB would fall almost 11% in value in that same period, we’d have shipped the Prancing Horse quicker than a freshly baked hot cake.

What were the other revelations? We delved into the data to bring you the biggest movers and shakers since April.

Highs and lows according to Hagerty

A special message from MSN:

While Christmas is a time of joy for most of us, that's not the case for the UK's most vulnerable children and young people. We've partnered with giving platform Benevity to raise funds for two charities - the NSPCC and The Children's Society – to try to help change that. You can help make a difference - please donate now.
