Celebrate the 1990s revival in style with these period racers

Racing cars from the 1990s are the hot collector trend of the hour – and the Classic Driver Market offers a nice selection of track toys to celebrate the revival. Here are our favourites...

If you visited virtually any of the major historic race meetings in 2018, you’ll have noticed that the sport is no longer reserved for classics of the 1950s, ’60s, and ’70s. A younger generation of collectors entering the market has led to an increase in the demand and values of more modern sports-racing cars from the 1990s and 2000s. Flourishing series such as the Masters and Global Endurance Legends series were very well represented at both Le Mans Classic and the Spa Six Hours this year and we’ve seen more and more of these special cars emerge in the Classic Driver Market, thanks in part to specialists such as Art & Revs and Jan B. Lühn. In fact, among the 1990s racers currently for sale are Dario Franchitti’s old Mercedes-Benz C-Class DTM car and the BMW 3 Series that won at the 1994 Spa 24 Hours. Why arrive late to the party when you’re so spoiled for choice?
