All too often, people will buy a limited edition vehicle in hopes they can make some money on it rather than using it as intended. But what more attainable vehicles will be future collectables? Us at Muscle Cars & Trucks don’t have a crystal ball to tell you that, but our friends over at Hagerty use their collector car insurance and vehicle value knowledge to give a ‘Hot List’ of the vehicles they believe will become collector cars far into the future. They’ve just released the 2020 Hot List, and it’s no surprise to see some of our favorites on there.
Top of the list is the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. It’s by far the fastest street legal Mustang ever to come out of Ford Performance, both around the track and on the drag strip. It’s also by far the most advanced, with significant use of carbon fiber, a dual-clutch transmission, and sophisticated aerodynamics. This allows it to take the fight beyond its typical Camaro competition, but into the territory of far more expensive European metal.
Next on the list, to no surprise, is the 2020 C8 Corvette Stingray. The C8 Corvette is like no Corvette before, with moving to a mid-engine configuration. Fans have been crying out for the engine to move behind the driver for years, and now GM have finally done it. The move put’s it in a class of it’s own: sports car price with near supercar performance, and exotic mid-engined looks. Adding to this is the relative rarity of 2020 models, caused by numerous delays.
Rounding up the American offerings is the Jeep Gladiator Rubicon and Cadillac CT6-V. The Gladiator in many ways the most practical vehicle ever made. Nothing can carry people and things over any type of terrain, yet still be great daily driver, and be deeply desirable. It’s easy to see why the Cadillac is on the list. It’s extremely limited production, features the short-lived Blackwing V8, and marks the end of the CT6-V.
Also on the list 2020 Hagerty Hot list is the gorgeous Polestar 1 hybrid GT coupe, and wicked fast Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP super bike.
