The Geneva Motor Show is known for its exotica, and this year’s event was no different.
With glittering unveilings from Bugatti, Ferrari, Koenigsegg, Lamborghini, Pininfarina and more, there was no shortage of luxury and performance models on show.
But the big question on the minds of many preparing to splash their cash on these high-value models is “what’s their investment potential?”
JBR Capital, a specialist in providing high-end finance for this type of vehicles, has today revealed the list of the greatest appreciating and depreciating cars over the past 10 years that launched at the Geneva show.
The highest appreciating model comes from Lamborghini with its seldom-seen Veneno, which saw its debut in 2013. Just five of the Aventador-based hypercars were ever made, and it was priced at a cool £2.6m when new. Six years later, a Veneno Coupe is valued at £7.3m – an 180 per cent increase in value, and a gain of over £4m.
Other winners include the Ferrari LaFerrari, which was also unveiled in 2013. Ferrari’s latest hypercar now looks like a bargain back then with a launch price of £1.15m, compared to its current price of £2.4m – an impressive 109 per cent increase in value.
Those who have just ordered Koenigsegg’s latest Jesko hypercar, which is said to be capable of 300mph, will be hoping their cars rise in value in a similar way to the firm’s 2014 One:1, which has doubled its value and is now worth £4m.
Rounding off the top five are the 2009 Pagani Zonda Cinque, which has risen in value by 54 per cent to £2m, as well as the 2010 Koenigsegg Agera, which is now worth £1.3m – a 49 per cent increase on its £875,000 list price.
But not everyone’s been so lucky. Buyers of the 2013 Maserati Quattroporte might have loved the styling and luxury of their saloon, but six years later, a low-mileage Quattroporte is worth just £32,000 – a 71 per cent loss.
The Bentley Continental GT Supersports has also plummeted by 54 per cent since its unveiling a decade ago, and is now worth £75,000, as opposed to £163,000 when new.
Elsewhere, the 2011 Aston Martin V8 Vantage S has dropped by 47 per cent to £56,000, the 2014 McLaren 650S by 37 per cent and a 2016 Jaguar F-Type SVR by 32 per cent to £75,000, according to JBR Capital.
Steven Halstead, executive chief operating office at the finance company, said: “It’s unsurprising that the Lamborghini Veneno, Ferrari LaFerrari and Koenigsegg One:1 have stolen the limelight in terms of current values. The Veneno is quite simply an outstanding car.”
As for this year’s unveilings, JBR Capital is hedging its bets that the one-off Bugatti La Voiture Noire, the Pagani Huayra BC Roadster and the Pininfarini Battista are the hypercars that will see prices soar. It has also recommended the Lamborghini Aventador SVR Roadster and Ferrari F8 Tributo as the supercars to keep an eye on where values are concerned.
