Future Classics

71 posts in this topic

Im gonna put my money on the bangle 7 series beemer.

Its caused such an outrage, and must of hit BMW sales, but still, i reckon it will be a classic.

Also, the saxo VTR/VTS. It instantly became the boy racers car of choice, but im sure it'll be recognised for the super little motor it was. (in a sierra cossie type way)

I agree with most of the above - Audi would also make the list with the RS4 joining the RS2

the only recent car which I think has brought something new to the table (other than the mini-MPV thing) is the Smart car - first city car that was fun and affordable. So this is one I think people will look back on as the start of something new maybe.

Not sure about the R32 - Golf with a body kit....... agree witht he rest though.

I also think there will be some others like perhaps:

Merc SLK - first hardtop cabrio.

Lotus Carlton - kind of started a trend

TVR Cerberra/Chimera/Grif - last of the V8s

New Beetle Cabrio - Inovative Roof design, move away from 'square' roofs (or is that rooves?).

Lupo 3l - lightweight economical, aluminium/plastic construction in budget sector.

Hmmm, not sure about some of them - especially the Lupo cos it's not groundbreaking in the looks department.

My list (without thinking too hard) would be (in no particular order):

1. Saxo VTR/VTS

2. Ford Puma

3. MGF

4. MX5 MK1

5. Clio williams

6. Focus RS

7. Audi S3

8. Merc SLK

9. Bimmer Z3 mk1

10. Mini cooper S works.

I think one future classic will be the BMW ZM3 Coupe, unusual looking cars (I personally think they look fantastic) and quite rare! the_finger.gifthe_finger.gif

Lotus Carlton a Classic Already. Also A E30 M3 and E28 M5.

The R32 will be a classic in the VW cricles but not much anywhere else.

The A8 will be a classic, due to the aluminium construction techniques used etc.

The first M5, the Lotus Carlton - defo, the Porsche 928, BMW 6 (original), Audi 80 Convertible!

Today's scene of grossly modifying quality and performance cars and/or thraping them to within an inch of their lives, means that any totally stock performance saloon on today's market, will become very desireable in the future.
