What is a Collectable?
Old? Limited edition?
A Collectable is a car that you do not need, but really want to own regardless. Even though you might realize that there are cheaper, better, more practical and more reliable alternatives.
A Collectable is bought with your heart, not (just) your head. Emotion vs. ratio. You bid on that one Collectable because you want to own it. Want to drive it. Want to look at it. Because it is different from the norm, sounds or drives amazing, possesses unique features or a crazy (and quite possible not understood) design.
The most spectacular engine specification, the weirdest spoiler; we can go on for ages. It is not (always) an old car. It is the one that when you see it, you point at it and recollect that special memory with that type with a fellow petrolheads.
Extreme fun per euro or extremely exclusive, it shouldn’t matter. From 205 GTI to F40. But only when in original condition and with a sound history.
New cars can be Collectable too. They just are not as easy to find…
