Looking for a future classic car that won't break the bank? We thought we'd help you out by listing just a few of our favourites.
1. Renault Clio V6 Sport
Cars that probably would have cost you pennies donkey's of years ago, have now become that desirable that they're worth some big money, just like the V6 Sport. When this bad boy appeared in the showrooms back in 2001, with an engine sitting in the middle of the car, it was a car that you knew you could have a lot of fun in.
If you've been putting off buying one, now is the time. Keeping it real with its 227bhp and a top speed of 153mph, we just know you're bound to have so much fun with this and you'll also get a great return on your investment too! With a price tag back then of around £8000 and upwards, the two-seater hot hatch has got to be one for the road, hasn't it?
2. Ford Focus RS
Now, this is such a classic! The Ford RS is such a popular and well-loved car and even has the title of one of the most popular cars ever sold. It's a future classic, boasting 144mph and 0-60 in 6.3 seconds, you can't really go wrong with the RS.
Some might say there are just too many of them around these days, but what can you expect, it's a celebrated car that will set you back a few bob, but only around £19,000 new, not too pricey. So if you fancy a turbocharged engine and front-wheel-drive, that's also a classic, the Focus RS is the one you're after.
3. Vauxhall VX220
If you're surprised to see the VX220 in our list of favourites, then don't be, it hits all the spots for a future classic car and we're about to tell you why. Sporty, sexy, and a well-rounded thrill seeker of a car, we've got to hand it to Vauxhall with this one. If you're looking for a lightweight classic that can help you make a big impact, you got to get your hands on one of these. With great engine options and tonnes of power, this beauty has an established following. Originally released with a price tag of around £22,000, you could probably get your hand on one a bit cheaper these days depending on its condition.
4. Aston Martin V12 Vantage
When the V12 Vantage first graced us with its presence back in 2009 it's fair to say that there were some pretty mixed reviews. The two-door roadster was released as part of the Vantage series and offered a cracking alternative to the original coupe style. The Vantage is a fine-looking classic car that is pretty special if you wanted to invest in one now for your future.
5. BMW 1M Coupe
It's as classic as they come this is. The 1M Coupe is a true modern classic that is already rare on Britain's roads. With them being so rare already, you don't want to miss out on this deal. They might have looked expensive a few years ago with that £40,000 price tag. but sadly that figure doesn't look like it's going down anytime soon, so now is the time to buy. For that 335bhp twin-turbo straight-six engine, it's without a doubt a good entry-level classic that has all the trimmings.
