These are the most exclusive vintage cars you can buy in England right now
They’re expensive. Very. Expensive.

LAST WEEKEND, THE first London Classic Car Show was hosted in the English capital, bringing together car enthusiasts and vintage rides from all over the region for display and to buy.

Prices generally spread from £100,000 to several millions, although there are often higher values that are not revealed because seller will opt for a closed-door auction.

“For many, it is an investment,” Samuel Laurence, a vintage car merchant in London, told Business Insider UK. “They do not lose value. Rather, it rises.”

Auto Express further supported that idea noting last year that “classic cars are now seen as a much better investment than savings accounts.”

If you’re thinking of getting into the game, Business Insider UK attended the event and we’ve highlighted some of the most interesting models, all of which are for sale.

This 135 Rolls Royce can be yours for £195,000.
