Having had some time off over the Christmas break, looking back over 2017 at some of the articles featured here at Enzari, it struck me that there has been no slow down in the amount of classic cars that have fetched high end money at various auctions over the year. That in itself might not seem a surprise, given the demand for classic Ferrari’s, Lamborghini’s and so on, but it does raise the question of what will be tomorrow’s classics?
Naturally I would say the Ferrari 488, the Italian carmaker’s Turbo V8 has won more than a few accolades since it was launched, and the car is simply awesome. But what others? Could you include something not quite as exclusive like the Abarth 695 Biposto? A brilliant pocket rocket which has fast gained a cult following with the Abarth crowd, or how about the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio, a return to RWD coupled with that V6 petrol engine is surely one to keep an eye on. Might as well throw in the new Stelvio also, being Alfa’s first SUV, could it gain a future classic status much like some of the original 4×4’s from other marques? When it comes to Supercar’s, Lamborghini has some stunning classic’s in it’s collection, none more so than the Muira, but could this year’s new Huracan Performante be seen in the same light sometime in the future.
One thing is certain, not that long ago many people were saying cars had become boring and stale, it’s good to see this isn’t the case, certainly the Italian carmaker’s continue to build and develop car’s that not only please the eye and good to drive but you will still want one in 60 years…Fantastico!
