New cars are not the only ones that are increasing in value. The value of classic cars has been rising for many years. Some models have doubled their value since 2019. The most sought-after models are Lamborghini and Ferrari, but there are also more simple classics.
Website Confused has published a study that shows which cars are most appreciated since 2019. It will not surprise anyone to see a Ferrari on the top list. However, few could have predicted that the F355 was made between 1994 and 1995. Since May 2019, its cost has risen by 213.8% in the United Kingdom. No. No. 2 is the Testarossa (111.4%), followed at 100 percent by the Lamborghini Miura (pictured) and F40 (pictured). Well deserved, if you ask us. The list also shows that more enthusiasts are looking for the Cadillac Brougham (84.5%) and Bugatti EB110 (665%) as well as the Citroen 2CV (32.4%).
The study did not only consider the value of a car, but also the popularity of the cars people search online most frequently. It’s not just the regular suspects. The Nissan Skyline GT-R is the top-ranked car. This is due to the fact that the nameplate appears on multiple cars. For example, the first-generation model was made in 1969 and 1972. However, the name “Skyline GT-R”, was searched for more than 8.2 million times in the last 12 months. No. The Lamborghini Countach is 2nd, with 4.82 million hits; the modern-day version may have sparked more interest. The Ferrari F40 is third with 4.08 millions hits. The Ferrari 250 GTO, the most expensive car on the planet, is 14th, behind the Pontiac Firebird, and the Lincoln Continental. The rally-bred Lancia Deltaintegrale is 17th, two spots behind the Stratos.
The Nissan Skyline GT-R takes the top spot on Instagram. The hashtag #GTR, #skylineGTR or #nissanskylineGTR was used to identify it. The DeLorean DMC-12 (688.376 hashtags) is another strong performer, while the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray was 361,900 times. Oldsmobile Cutlass managed to get 69,700,000. This puts it ahead of the Testarossa (3,481,861 views), Delta Integrale (339,480.904) and the 250 GTO (14,542,667).
Confused used this data to compile a list of the top classic cars in the world. The winner is… the Lamborghini Miura! This is a question that could be used to fuel pub conversation until the end. It all depends on how you define “greatest” or “classic” and what you have in your barn.
However, if you agree to the study, here is some great news: Lamborghini’s in-house restoration center Polo Storico has become really adept at restoring the Miura.
