Consider it a crystal ball into the future of car collecting.
Hagerty Insurance, the world’s largest insurer of classic cars, is out with its annual list of top 10 vehicles the company expects to become future collector items.
The cars’ prices range from the tiny Ford Fiesta ST at $21,400 to the raucous Jaguar F-Type R roadster at a hair under $100,000. To make the list, the vehicle had to be built in 2014 and feature a starting price under $100,000. Hagerty said it gave special consideration to vehicles not appearing on previous lists.
"For a car to be collectible in the future, it has to be cool right off the assembly line," McKeel Hagerty, president and chief executive of Hagerty, said in a statement. "A collectible car has to grab you and not let you go."
Here’s a rundown of the 10 vehicles that made the list, in order of their starting price:
1. Jaguar F-Type R ($99,000)
2. BMW M5 Sedan ($92,900)
3. Chevrolet COPO Camaro ($90,000)
4. Maserati Ghibli S ($75,000)
5. Alfa Romeo 4C ($54,000)
6. Chevrolet Corvette ($51,000)
7. Nissan 370Z NISMO ($43,000)
8. Dodge Challenger Shaker ($36,995)
9. Jeep Wrangler Rubicon X ($35,095)
10. Ford Fiesta ST ($21,400)
