5 collector cars to put in your garage this Christmas

Even Rudolf would turn green with envy this week, as we pick out five festively red cars to tempt your wallet while you digest your Christmas dinner.

The winter project

You can't deny the Iso Grifo is a beautiful car and this unrestored example has been hidden away for over 50 years. Once owned by Marc Gregoire, owner of the legendary French cookware brand Tefal, the car appears to have been the Paris Show car in 1964. Now it’s time for someone to bring this Iso A3/L back to its former beauty.

 

Chief fly catcher

Up for auction this week is this fabulous, 1934 Morgan 3 Wheeler. Charles Morgan himself once drove one across America, while on the Gumball 3000 rally. Reports suggest he found it fabulous fun, his partner was perhaps not so impressed. An amazing feat non the less, and with this fine example you could start planning your own cross-continental adventure.

 

Lightweight investment

Whilst the original Lotus Elise has already seen its values rise and you can buy the much improved Series 2 for the same price. More an evolution over its older brother, this 2002 model in Ruby Red is an immaculate example of a car that took something great and made it better. In a time of crazy power wars between hyper car manufacturers, this is the perfect antidote.

 

Rare German beef

The BMW Z8 is most often seen in silver, so this red example is a rare treat of BMWs vision to pay respect to the iconic 507 model of the 1950s. If it was good enough for James Bond in ‘The World is Not Enough’ it’s surely worth consideration for your garage this winter. This perfect example is a low mileage well cared for car, that needs for nothing.

 

A rally good time to be had

What no Porsche this week? Don’t panic, here you are and what a car! A 1965 Porsche 911 rally car with a chassis tuned by Walter Röhrl himself! Road registered and supplied with FIA papers, this purposeful Porsche is ready for you to have some serious dirty fun in 2021, and god knows we all need that right now!
