Hagerty’s “Hot List” of Future Collectible 2014 MY Cars

Each new year, Hagerty Classic Car Insurance comes out with a new top ten “Hot List” of new cars that they predict will become collectibles in the next 25 years. Their only requirements for qualification are that the chosen cars must be priced at under $100,000 and be from our current model year. In addition, special consideration was given to newly launched vehicles that have not appeared in any of their previous year’s lists. While we may not particularly agree on all of their decisions, we do not find modern cars very inspiring, in general, so perhaps we aren’t the ones to ask. But we will say that the Alfa Romeo 4C is the absolute stand out winner in our books, which we are still anxiously awaiting of it’s arrival.
Find their list on the following page…
Please note: This is Hagerty’s list along with their brief explanations, not to be confused with our own silent opinions here at CarBuildIndex.com.

The 2014 Hagerty Hot List (along with base price):

1) Jaguar F-Type R ($99,000)

“The British marque makes a triumphant return to the sports car scene with the growling F-Type. Boasting a healthy V8 engine and rear drive platform, the F-Type will surely be a driving enthusiast choice soon enough.”

2) BMW M5 Sedan ($92,900)

“A performance-oriented sedan with an old school manual transmission is quickly becoming an extinct species. While more drivers shun the thought of using three pedals, we applaud BMW for keeping this option alive in this segment.”

3) Chevrolet COPO Camaro ($90,000)

“Chevrolet basically guarantees future collectability of the drag-strip ready COPO Camaro by limiting production to 69 units. It is only appropriate that the first production model will be sold at the upcoming Barrett-Jackson auction in Arizona.”

4) Maserati Ghibli S Q4 ($76,900)

“The Ghibili returns for a third time, and this time as a four door. The twin turbochargers feeding the 404 horsepower 3.0 liter V6 ensures the Ghibili is more than just pretty curves.”
5) Alfa Romeo 4C ($54,000)

“A budget-friendly Italian sports car might sound like an oxymoron, but the 4C is saying all the right words. With a carbon fiber tub leading to a curb weight of just over 2,100 lbs., this sporty two-seater isn’t pulling any punches as it aims at the U.S. market.”
6) Chevrolet Corvette ($51,000)

“The Corvette is the most popularly collected vehicle in the U.S. so GM had no choice but to make the new C7 great. It is a nice mix of Corvette heritage with real world performance figures and technology goodies. Dollar for dollar this is the best performance buy on the market.”
7) Nissan 370Z NISMO ($43,000)
2014 Nissan 370Z NISMO
“The Nissan Z car has amassed a following and the 370Z NISMO is the latest and greatest in this lineage. With Japanese cars now representing a standalone class of collectables in a way that we have not seen in the past, 350 and 370Zs will not be ignored by collectors in years to come.”
8) Dodge Challenger Shaker ($36,995)

“While the styling of the new Challenger has always harkened back to the glory days of muscle cars, nothing says horsepower wars like a bulging hood scoop. Dodge went back to the roots and added the iconic shaker hood to atop of a healthy HEMI engine and R/T options package. We will take ours in Plum Crazy Pearl.”
9) Jeep Wrangler Rubicon X ($35,095)

“Vintage SUV’s are the fastest growing segment and Jeep leads that pack. While more comfortable than its bare bones workhorse ancestor, the Rubicon X is highly capable for not a lot of money. Many of these now compete at events, which means they will one day command respect at vintage off-road demonstrations.”
10) Ford Fiesta ST ($21,400)

“Following the enthusiasm surrounding the Focus ST, the little brother Fiesta ST has been pumping the same iron. Youthful buyers attracted to compact cars don’t always want to sacrifice performance. The Fiesta looks, sounds and acts the part of a modern day enthusiast’s car.”
