...for certain model years, they promise greater accessibility for the masses. Hagerty says Millennials are especially interested in these.

Also sneaking in there is the 2011-2012 Lexus LFA, a supercar with an absolutely amazing exhaust note and styling which is definitely unique. With a production run of just 500 units, they’re rare, but more have been crossing the auction block recently and for healthy amounts.

Easily the oldest car on the list, the 1948-1954 Jaguar XK120 is a true British classic which at one point was the world’s fastest production car. While its performance isn’t impressive by today’s standards, the elegant beauty of the body and interior are certainly enviable. Prices fell a few years ago, but Hagerty says that might have allowed a new crop of owners to scoop up these classics, fueling new interest in them.

We can certainly see why Hagerty has its eyes on the 1984-1991 Ferrari Testarossa, a car which wasn’t appreciated for its balance of Pininfarina style and potent performance for a few reasons. Now people are waking up to the fact the Testarossa is a great supercar as well as a cultural icon. While investors cooled on these not too long ago, that trend seems to be reversing. We say get one regardless.


As for the rest of the list, we find Hagerty’s choices to be a little odd but justifiable. Everyone has their preferences, but the 1964-1970 Honda S600/S800 doesn’t exactly do it for us, however we understand for others they’re a balanced classic sports car. Same goes for the 1980-1991 Volkswagen Vanagon Westfalia, which has been a favorite of people who only frequent local coffee shops and farmers markets. There’s nothing wrong with these Euro vans and for many their nostalgia is undeniable, especially for Gen Xers.

Hagerty also includes the 2000-2006 Audi TT Quattro on the list, a car that’s been harangued by many enthusiasts. However, it enjoys a cult following and that seems to be growing.
