It’s never been a better time to own a classic car.  Time and time again it is being proved that buying an exotic or rare classic car is a better and safer investment than trading stocks, even ‘‘.

It’s hardly surprising when you look at how much a bespoke classic car can sell for at an auction house.  The record for the most expensive car ever was shattered in 2013 when a rare 1954 Mercedes-Benz W196 was sold for .

Impressive?  Not for long – this record was quickly smashed by a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO was sold for a breathtaking .

But it’s more than just a few stand-out sales.  The classic-car market has soared from US$144 million in sales made in 2000, to a whopping .

You can’t just buy any old car – it’s the best and most expensive classic cars that are worth so much more than their price tag.  You have to find a car that is timeless in style and grace, and drives like a dream.

And most importantly, what do the Mercedes W196 and the Ferrari 250 have in common?  Well, apart from being stunningly successful racers, they are just plain sexy…

   

So where’s the best place to start looking for a collectible classic car that’s likely to appreciate?  The golden age of sexy cars – the 1960s.

The sexy swinging sixties – a time of revolution the world over.

In an age of rock legends, rising supermodels and the miniskirt, automotive design followed suit, with more and more cars being designed as pieces of art rather than simply forms of transport.

The 1960s also saw a huge improvement in motoring technology – with cars driving faster and smoother than ever before.

So if you are looking to get your hands on one of the smoothest, sexiest cars of all time, read on for a few suggestions:

  1. Love the Corvette and wish there were more of them in Britain. Its simple snobbery that the car mags hate all American cars when they’re as good as a lot of the junk built in Europe.
