Top 10: Most stolen modern classics

We all know that older cars lack the inbuilt security features we've all come to associate with newer ones - and overall theft rate against 1980-1995 classics reflect this. The trouble is that currently, many of the cars targeted in this list aren't of the cherished variety, which explains the much higher theft rate of these cars, compared with easier to stael older classic cars.

So is your modern classic at risk? We list the top 10 modern classics that are most stolen in the UK. The figures are calculated by comparing the number of reported thefts and plotting them against how many examples survive on UK roads.
