David Boulton, Managing Director at BPI Auctions, said: “The classic car community is huge in the UK and cars can be a lucrative investment.

“When thinking about cars with high resale values, special edition and rare models will always have a huge demand, but collectors should also consider the history of the car and the impact it will have on the industry – for example, the Tesla Roadstar changed the game for electric vehicles, as it was the first road-legal all-electric car to use lithium-ion battery cells, and was the first car to be launched into space.

“We run monthly classic car auctions with a collection of cars, campers, pickups, motorbikes and vehicle-related memorabilia. The auctions attract thousands of page views and hundreds of registered bidders.”

The data was compiled by cross referencing sales volume and search volumes.
