Experts at Motorparks said prices appreciate or depreciate based on several “different factors”. Most importantly, these can include a car’s cult status and desirability among collectors.

However, purchasing an older model which could one day earn their own “classic badge” in the future could be an option for savvy motorists.

Motorparks have picked out three classics they expect to rise in value in the years to come.

Maserati Quattroporte Fifth Generation

Produced between 2003 and 2012, the Quattroporte is one of the newest models tipped as a future classic.

Motorparks said: “We’ll start with a vehicle that you probably wouldn’t expect to see on the list based on usual sentiment towards Maserati cars.

“But with prices starting from £9,000 for the fifth-generation Maserati Quattroporte, it was a no-brainer to include it on the list.

“With a Ferrari-derived petrol V8 engine and super-sleek looks for a saloon car, the fifth-generation’s eight-year absence from the market gives it a serious chance of earning classic status.

“And who wouldn’t be happy with saying they own a Maserati?”

Renaultsport Clio 182 Trophy

Motorparks have said the chance of the hot hatch becoming a classic of the future were “high”.

They added: “The Renaultsport Clio 182 Trophy’s chances of becoming a future classic are high.

“Firstly, its 2.0-litre engine inside a tiny supermini — which weighs less than a tonne — makes it a powerful vehicle despite its small presence.

“Secondly, only 500 right-hand drive models were produced by the French manufacturer, meaning your chances of getting your hands on the car when it was released in 2005 were slim, never mind 15 years later.
