Best Classic Cars To Buy

Even if you ignore the idea of buying as an investment, waiting any longer to buy one of these cars will only cost you more money. Enjoy now! Without doubt, 2016 was the year of the classic Porsche, but looking past the huge across-the-board price rises for certain models, it’s clear that the market has continued its shift towards more modern machinery from the 1980s and 1990s. With an eye on what still represents good value today, as well as what has the potential to rise in the future, we’ve picked a few cars to consider buying in 2017. We’ll admit that we’re following our hearts as much as our heads with these suggestions but, if you don’t do it now, don’t blame us later. Octane magazine staff Chris Bietzk, Mark Dixon, David Lillywhite and Glen Waddington talk us through the suggestions: Toyota Celica (First generation) £8000-20,000 Select lumps of J-tin are now hot property, and the first-gen Toyota Celica is getting there. Handsome (if you steer clear of the mid-period US plastic-bumper cars), lively (for the day) and well-built (no qualifier needed; it was a Toyota), it deserved its ‘Baby Mustang’ nickname. CB BMW Z4M coupé £15,000-30,000 Many have tipped the E46-generation M3 as the place to put your modern(ish) BMW money, but £20,000 in a well-kept Z4M coupé could make more sense if you don’t need the space. Only 200 came to the UK, way fewer than the roadster. And look what happened to the ‘breadvan’ Z3M that preceded it… GW Citroen Traction Avant £10,000-20,000 Convertibles fetch six-figure sums these days, but a plain-Jeanne saloon – every bit the same masterpiece of engineering – can still be had for Ford Fiesta money. Cars as influential, easy to live with and as good to drive as the Citroen Traction Avant are rarely this cheap. Forget future values, because you’ll probably never want to sell. CB Subaru Impreza P1 £10,000-30,000 The two-door P1 is the Holy Grail of first-generation Impreza Turbos, aside from the ultra-special 22B. Only 1000 were built by Prodrive, with the (stronger) Japanese-market body and a 276bhp version of the turbo flat-four. Prices are only going one way. Same goes for other limited-edition Scoobies, such as the RB5 – though they’re still some way behind the P1. GW Jaguar 2.4 Mk1 £20,000-30,000 The original compact saloon may ‘only’ be a 2.4 but it comes with the Dinky Toy jelly-mould shape and Art Deco spats, and it goes perfectly well. So much rarer than an XK, less ostentatious, and a third the price. MD Land Rover County Station Wagon £5000-20,000 If you like your Landy with a dash of comfort, the 1980s County Station Wagons not only came in funky two-tone colour schemes with lairy side-stripes but also had tweed cloth seat facings. So you can drive a proper old Land Rover but your bum will stay warm, too. MD Alpine-Renault GTA £8000-15,000 Name a rear-engined sports car with history at Le Mans and on the Monte. Now name one that’s not a 911. With Alpine about to be relaunched, now could be the time to buy a GTA, once the world’s most aerodynamic car and still a stunning looker. Turbo version has performance to match; wide-bodied Le Mans is the most sought-after. GW Touring cars £20,000-200,000 Touring Cars of the 1980s and early ’90s are suddenly big news in UK Historic racing, with headline races at Goodwood Members’ Meeting and Silverstone Classics, and series with HSCC and CTCRC. Sierra Cosworths and BMW M3s are core but one of the cheapest ways in is the good old Alfa Romeo GTV6. DL MGA £14,000-30,000 With the best now asking far more than our top figure, one of the last bastions of attainable mid-century automotive glamour seems to be trundling (MGAs were always slower than they looked) beyond the reach of normal folk. Ignore the potentially vexatious Twin Cam, buy a tidy car on steels and use it often. CB Porsche Boxster £9000-15,000 It’s scarcely credible that you can get so much ‘proper’ Porsche for so little money – and a convertible, to boot. MD Porsche 997 GT3 £80,000-100,000 You know a car’s going to end up out of reach all too soon when it hasn’t actually depreciated from new. Always the purist’s favourite 911, the GT3 went without turbos and driver aids to focus on feedback, precision and involvement – at their height in the 997 generation. GW Jaguar XJ Series 3 £5000-20,000 Has there ever been a better-looking saloon? We all know the best Series 1s have become highly collectable, but the S3 – best-engineered and most refined of the lot – is taking a long time to follow suit. Immaculate and history’d 4.2s are out there for £15,000 and won’t always be; if you can stomach its complexity, the XJ12 is stunningly refined and brisk. GW Citroen Ami £4000-10,000 The brilliantly kooky ‘3CV’ has become a very rare sight in the UK. The Ami 6 Berline with its far-out, reverse-rake rear window is priciest; the Ami 8 with better-resolved front styling remains a bargain. A search for either will inevitably lead you to the Continent. CB Alfa Romeo 75 £3000-5000 Alfa Romeo had nothing left in the cupboard, so the 75 looked even weirder than the 1970s Giulietta on which it was based. But Alfa gradually honed the bits you can’t see, making this the finest-handling of all its transaxle cars. If you can find one, a late, unmolested 3.0-litre manual is a thing of joy. GW Endurance racers £200,000-£5M Just as Group B rally cars were given new life by the Slowly Sideways demonstration group, so the new 90s Endurance Legends is allowing 1990-2005 GTs and Sports Prototypes to be driven on UK and European circuits. Think Porsche 993 GT2 to McLaren F1 GTR. DL

9 Oddball Cars These are design mistakes, cars that were unloved or misunderstood for most of history, so out of place they’re underrated as classic cars. Good examples include the 1975 AMC Pacer X Levi’s Edition with denim seats, a 1973–1974 VW Thing, or even a 1985–1991 Yugo. Because many of these cars started out as cheap, mass-market transportation, good examples are rare. Be certain you buy a car in top condition, and know that the value may never increase.

“Iconic cars like the Aston Martin DB4, DB5 and DB6 have seen some big gains in value in recent years but values levelled off last year. Now the spotlight is falling on the younger Astons, and the real movement has been in the V8 Vantages. CLASSIC CARSWhy did so many evil men love the Mercedes 600? Continue Reading Buyers who had these cars on their bedroom walls now might just be able to afford them – I say might because the late Eighties cars are rapidly accelerating out of reach. Highest demand is for the powerful X Pack versions. Prices currently range from £300k to £400k, up around 20 per cent on a year ago and they should have more growth ahead.”

“Super-cool and one of the best-looking drop-tops from a time when Mercedes made truly beautiful cars. They've had a strong following for many years now but they're starting to edge out of reach for most and while the entry point to SL W113 lifestyle was probably around £50,000 two years ago for a good running car that might need a little TLC, you’ll now need at least £70,000. The really exceptional restored cars are £110,000 and more, but there’s perennial demand for these cars and I expect that to continue.”
