Future classic?
« on: March 18, 2016, 07:26:59 pm »
Had my AGP for nearly 3 years, I paid £7200 and looking at the prices now it seems mine hasn't lost a lot of money, only put 12k on it in that time but still worth £6000?
It seems the prices are quite strong for this model even more so than the punto evo pro-rata. Could this model be a future classic, it seems quite possible and it's also a rare beast only 326 registered and I like driving something you don't see everyday I love it still.

    First model to kickstart the modern Abarth revolution. That will count for something, but if you like, that's what's important, love my Punto too.  :thumb:

    I think the limited numbers will help along with agp's now being cheap enough for boy racers to wrote a few more off the further limit the numbers. But i don't think they are in demand enough to bring in any serious wonga later on. And the 500's i'm sorry to say i just think are too common now.
    onto my second AGP :)

    Just wait, time will tell. However if they do become classic / rare status mine will be pretty undesirable, I'm planning on racking many miles into mine. Most of my cars go over 100k due to commuting. But seriously, what a fun car to do it in :) :)

    I was wondering the same, have had mine from new, July 08 and don't really use it anymore but can't bring myself to sell it.

    Was thinking of putting it in storage but would cost more than keeping it on the road and I still enjoy going for a blast in it.

    It is by far the longest have ever kept a car and still only done about 60K Never be worth much I guess but probably be of interest to some in years to come.

    Hmm... must say I have July 08 one from new (bit tatty now tho' :-)), not expecting it to be a classic. It does get some interest in carparks but usually from people older that I am (i.e. =60+)

    I have no intention of changing it or replacing it.
