Geneva's 10 best appreciating cars of the last 10 years

Have you ever sold a car and wished you hadn’t? Worse still, have you ever sold a car and been glad you’d “got shot of it”, and then discovered its value had skyrocketed almost immediately? Hindsight is a beautiful thing.

Another Geneva Motor Show is underway, a show filled with some very exciting, very expensive (and not-so-expensive) machines. One headline-grabbing vehicle was the Bugatti ‘La Voiture Noire’, “the most expensive new car of all time”, according to Bugatti. But what will the ‘La Voiture Noire’ be worth in 10 years time? The same €11m plus taxes one wealthy “Bugatti enthusiast” paid for it? Perhaps a few million euro more, or perhaps less?

The big Bugatti prompts the question ‘what will a Geneva car be worth in a few years time?’ Thankfully Finance company JBR Capital has done some research, looking back at a variety of cars that were revealed at the Geneva show over the last decade to figure out which cars we really should have bought at launch…
