With used car values up some 30 percent on last year, the possibility of spotting a bargain has become more difficult. However knowing the right car to take a punt on can pay off in a big way if you purchase a future classic.
Leading online used-car marketplace, Motorway.co.uk, has polled a number of dealers from its extensive network of car dealers to reveal their top 10 list of cars set to soar in value over the next decade.
Rover 75 V8, 2004
It might raise the eyebrows of some for a Rover 75 to make a list of future classics, but the V8 version is a different beast which has, in recent years, been soaring in popularity. A 4.6-litre engine and smooth automatic transmission offer refined and effortless performance.
Aston Martin Cygnet, 2011
Another surprise inclusion to the bracket of ‘future classics’ is Aston Martin’s Cygnet – a miniature city car which helped to set a new benchmark for compact luxury. They are already rising in value fast, up almost double in the past five years.
Alpine A110S, 2019
