We like to think we help you save money on a car with Auto Express, but what if you want to make money with a future classic?

At Auto Express, we're always trying to save you money if you're thinking about buying your next car. But making money with a future classic is always an option if you're looking for a more left-field alternative. So, along with our regularly updated new car deals pageused buying guides, or real-life mpg readings in our car group tests and long-term reports, here's a list of 10 collectible cars that are sure to make you some profit when you sell it on.

With the classic car market currently in rude health, there’s never been a better time to dabble in a bit of four-wheeled financial speculation. Yet you don’t have to spend hundreds of thousands on a slice of thoroughbred Italian exotica to turn a decent profit. In fact, our list covers everything from hot hatchbacks to rally bred saloons and understated family cars. 

Best classic cars to buy as investments

To prove it, we’ve teamed up with sister site classicandperformancecar.com to pick out 10 affordable models that are only likely to go up in value. And with prices starting from just £800 and everything from a sporty city runabout through to a hi-tech Japanese supercar to choose from, there should be something for every taste and budget.

Your only dilemma now is whether you shut your investment away and let it gather pounds or enjoy it in the knowledge that you’ll still be quids in when it’s time to sell.
