Should I buy an Aston Martin Vanquish as an asset?
"I will shortly be retiring and I am anxious to purchase a high quality car that does not depreciate significantly. New model values appear to drop off a cliff. I have in mind the old model Aston Martin Vanquish. Do you have any thoughts please on whether this model will continue to hold its current value or not? Indeed, if you have any other observations regarding a value for money purchase along the lines of the Vanquish, I should be very grateful."
Back on 1 September I talked to a chap who had just bought an immaculate 30,000-mile 1996 Virage V8 for £32,000 plus £3840 auction commission at Historics. He reckoned it would be a good bet. But the maintenance costs of these cars are crippling, and always have been. There are signs that now the stock market is recovering, the heat may go out of classic cars as investments. There has been a lot of hype about £8 million and £12 million Ferraris pulling up auction prices. This can be a very easy way to make several million. You buy a rare car for £5 million, but put out a news release that you paid £7 million. Then another comes up at auction and, on the strength of what you apparently paid, it makes £7 million, so your £5 million car is immediately 'worth' £7 million.

Based on recent auction results it might be down to about £80,000 to the trade. But I don't know anyone who would buy it in current market conditions. You might find some rich guy in Malaysia by advertising in the Straits Times, or in Thailand by trying the Bangkok Post or The Nation, but I don't know what ‘Aston Martin’ means to rich people there. A last resort would be a top car auction at BCA, Normal cars have gone up since December, but the big stuff is still falling and is very, very hard to place.
