F10 M5 Named a Future Classic by Hagerty

COMMENTS

Hagerty, a leading insurance provider for classic vehicles, has named the F10 M5 as a future classic. They have this to say about the F10 M5:

"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."

Full press release:

HAGERTY ANNOUNCES ITS ANNUAL "HOT LIST" OF FUTURE COLLECTIBLES

The Classic Car Experts Predict the Most Collectible 2014 Model Year Cars


TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (January 6, 2014) – With so much attention focused on the record breaking classic car sales and their rapidly increasing values, many enthusiasts often wonder which cars of today will be collectible down the road. Always keeping an eye on the market, the collector car experts at Hagerty released their annual list of vehicles that stand out as likely being collectible within the next 25 years.

In order to be considered for this years "Hagerty Hot List," the vehicle must be produced within the 2014 model year with an MSRP of less than $100,000. Special consideration was given to newly launched versions not appearing on previous Hagerty Hot Lists.

"Most new car news focuses on the latest interactive technology, alternative power sources, and the race to increased efficiency," said McKeel Hagerty, President and CEO of Hagerty. "But for a car to be collectible in the future, it has to be cool right off the assembly line. A collectible car has to grab you and not let you go."

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 ($75,000) – The Ghibli returns for a third time, and this time as a four door. The twin turbochargers feeding the 410 horsepower 3.0 liter V6 ensures the Ghibli 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) – 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.

Very surprised by this. If they would've said "Most Forgettable", then I'd agree.

Actually, I would think someone would want a Gran Turismo MC Stradale before a Ghibli or a Quattroporte.

Reality is that only the US has a manual option, of which 10% are spec'ed as manual. I assume manual would be classic. Assuming 2000 sold, 500 in US that makes 50 a year for a 7 year production run of 350 original manual cars. Over 20-30 years 50% written off? Does this make it a classic maybe. Dual clutch maybe not. Glad I got a manual.

Most forgettable? Tell me more about how you have driven one. While I wouldn't consider it a classic, it sure as hell isn't forgettable.

"In order to be considered for this years "Hagerty Hot List," the vehicle must be produced within the 2014 model year with an MSRP of less than $100,000"

This is why your M6 Grand Coupe is not on this list.

Interesting, only time will tell.

I personally think the i8 will fit into the collectible category down the road.

The F10 M5 is a beautiful bimmer. I have to agree, I'm sure they will be a classic. I for one want one with a manual also. Maybe one day if I ever have a family.

+1 and I think the e39 will be more of a classic than the f10. It's just too random
