It would be nice to think that that new car sitting in your driveway will still be desirable several years down the road. The experts at classic car insurer Hagerty know a thing or two about collectibles and have put together their annual Hagerty Hot List of 2015 cars under $100,000 that could be collectible in the next 25 years. I’m assuming anything with a MSRP OVER $100,00 is automatically collectible. Note that new versions that haven’t appeared on previous lists are more likely to be on this one.
So, here are the top 10 cars, with prices, in alphabetical order. Some room for argument, but no real surprises. It’s probably already too late to get the Mazda, as apparently only 100 were slated for the North American market.
Alfa Romeo 4C Launch Edition ($69,685)
BMW M4 Convertible ($73,450)
Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 ($75,000)
Chevrolet Corvette Z06 ($78,995)
Dodge Challenger Hellcat ($58,295)
Ford Mustang GT Performance Package ($37,125)
Mazda MX-5 Miata 25th Anniversary Edition ($33,000)
MINI John Cooper Works Hardtop ($24,950) – New for 2015, the 2 door hardtop John Cooper Works MINI is the most powerful MINI ever produced. The performance specs are impressive, but what will have collectors drooling in the future is the attention paid to the MINI's design concept.
Subaru WRX STI Launch Edition ($38,190)
Volkswagen Golf R ($36,595)
So would you buy/have you bought any of these? Or do you have your own candidate for the hot list? I’ll be moving several of these into the virtual garage for sure.
