Note from the Editor
This months selection of cars is eclectic. A front-engined rear wheel drive race car, a mid-engined open top sportscar and a snarling Italian all wheel drive V12. The common denominator, like all of our feature cars, is the surefire collectors status that ensures their appeal and strong future values.
The BMW M4 GTS is the most hotly anticipated BMW model since the CSL, the level of work that has gone into this car is off the scale. I thought we’d struggle to find a UK owner of the car, with just 30 destined for our shores out of the total build of 700. Fortunately I needn’t have worried, a quick message to a very socially savvy M car nut landed us our owner contribution within days. The story of ordering, taking delivery and initial honeymoon period makes a truly insightful read.
The Porsche Boxster Spyder is my favourite kind of investment car, built on a universally loved car with key improvements that raise it to the roof (or in this case beyond the need of a roof). Stripping away what many would regard as essential to motoring pleasure, especially in the UK, was a masterstroke by Porsche. Taking away the complexity of a roof mechanism, other modern tech and fitting lightweight wheels and panels cut 80kg from an already lightweight car. These changes focus the driving experience back to the bare essentials. With just 235 UK cars built and 107 manual gearbox examples it makes a great buy.
What I love about the Lamborghini Murciélago is that it makes no apologies for being big and bold. It puts up two fingers to everyone, even the driver, if it isn’t driven with the utmost respect. The driving experience is scintilating, edge of the seat stuff. A way I would describe it is as a balance of power. The epic power on tap versus the power to resist the urge to floor it at every opportunity!
