BMW M6 or Jaguar XKR - which will be a future classic?

I have a 2013 Jaguar XKR (34,000 miles - out of warranty) and am considering changing to a 2013 BMW M6 convertible. Which car has the longer term "classic" potential?

It's almost summer so obviously the convertible will be the more enjoyable car during the coming months (assuming the XKR is a coupe). As for classic status, the Jag has the looks because an M6 is extremely ugly, but in the future the M6 will probably have the edge.
