Today’s New Muscle Cars, Tomorrow’s Collectables

By  | 

What is common today, can be priceless in the future.


You can see and hear it all the time in the classic muscle car world. Individuals who either owned a rare example of a golden era muscle car or had the chance to buy one, but moved on to something else at the time. It’s only in hindsight we can see how valuable those past ‘potentials’ were.

It’s the same today.
Limited runs of cars from today’s perspective may look just like another offering from the manufacturer or another way to boost sales, but they can become future classics.
You just have to take a look at some of the big auction houses to see modern muscle cars with very limited edition runs going through for a very nice price, thank you very much.

So what would be considered as a modern-day classic or collectable?
Concerning muscle cars, it is best look into the past to see how the most valuable cars became so rare and sought-after.
It is usually the most rare optioned vehicles, but they also came from a time when most cars were ordered from an option list. This was the more common way of buying a brand-new car, not so much arriving at the lot and choosing one you saw.
The negative is that the more options you choose, the more the car costs, initially.

So onto the modern collectable muscle cars.

With a 650HP powerplant, the Corvette Z06 really made super car owners wake up again to the muscle car family.

Dodge Challenger Hellcat ($58,295).
It’s not hard to see the new Dodge Hellcat as a future classic. Arguably, this car has done more to revive the muscle car ethos than any other vehicle.
