Of the 289 movers in the latest update of the Classic Cars magazine Price Guide, just 32 are fallers. The rest are showing growth of anything up to 71%. That chart-topping figure is achieved by the Jaguar XJ12 Coupé, meaning that decent examples now start at £9k and you can pay anywhere from £16-24k depending on how perfect the car is. The six-cylinder version isn’t far behind with figures around 20% lower than the V12 model.
The top five slots are locked out by cars that hitherto have been keeping quiet – Lotus Esprit S2, Triumph Spitfire MkII and original Spitfire 4.
Fallers show no pattern of age or car type, with the Subaru Impreza Turbo and Austin Atlantic coupé topping the chart at -14% and -12% respectively. Now, that pairing would make for a diverse two-car garage.
