What cars would you recommend as possible future classics? They must be automatic and reasonable to maintain.

Answered by Keith Moody
You could have a look at a Mercedes-Benz SL (R107) although these are expensive now. Maybe a P38 Range Rover or a Bentley Arnage Red Label. If you'd like to go a bit more modern, then perhaps one of the first Audi TTs with the DSG box like the 2003 3.2 is an option (although the boxes are fragile) or something like a Smart Roadster. Also worth a look might be an American muscle car like a Mustang, or you could go for a high-performance model like a BMW M3 or Mercedes-Benz AMG. Feeling flush? Then how about a Nissan GT-R.

My son has a Renault Avantime in RHD. Apparently you are more likely to see Lord Lucan than one of these. Is it worth storing in case it becomes a more valuable classic?
Looking for potential classic with a budget of only £4000. Any suggestions?
I have a 1968 Riley Elf and a 1972 MG Midget. Both are used weekly and are in fair condition. I'd like to sell one, but don't no which one will go up in value the most over the next 10 years.

Design icon with surefooted handling and an intricately detailed cabin.
Ostentatious luxury for those who like an old-fashioned approach.
Evocative looks, entertaining drive and wonderful exhaust note. 4.6 GT manual convertible best of the lot.
One of the quickest cars money can buy. Twin-turbo V6 develops 550PS. Good value compared to any other supercar.
Cute looks, comfortable ride and good grip. You can raise the hood while driving along. Makes far more sense second-hand.
