For anyone sick of the tiddly return of 0.25 per cent interest rates, auction chiefs have said Brits should simply buy a McLaren, Bugatti or Lamborghini.

Experts at online asset disposal specialist, BPI Auctions, advised Brits to ‘invest now’ in classic cars of the future, which they reckon will soar in value in years to come and make you a packet.

The No1 recommendation from the auction house is the McLaren P1, a supercar launched in 2013 which can reach 60mph in just 2.8 seconds and has a top speed of around 220mph.

The Bugatti Veyron – which was the fastest road car in the world at the time of its launch – cost £1.5 million and will reach £5.3 million after 30 years. Though the owner will be expected to change the oil at least once a year – at a cost of £20,000. Wheels and tyres are expected to be replaced at least every 10,000 miles – at a cost of £60,000

The Ford GT was a homage to the Le Mans winning GT 40 of the 1960s. It cost £380,000 when new and should reach an estimated £1.3 million 

The car, of which just 439 were ever made, cost ‘just’ £866,000 at the time, but can now sell for around £2m – will celeb owners including Lewis Hamilton, Jenson Button and Mexican boxing champ Canelo Alvarez.

Bosses at BPI Auctions say that by 2038 – when the car hits the 25-year mark, making it a ‘classic car’ – the car with sell for an ‘absolute fortune’, estimated around £3m.

If your budget can’t quite stretch to the McLaren P1, a first generation Tesla Roadster – launched in 2008 – is your second best option.

The Ferrari Enzo, pictured, was only supposed to have a production run of 349 but this was increased to 399 due to demand. A 400th car was delivered to Pope John Paul II who returned it to Ferrari where it was auctioned for charity

A spokesman for BPI Auctions said today that Brits should look to its top 10 classic cars of the future for investment ideas.

The design consultant said: ‘I would love to invest in a McLaren P1 or a Ferrari Enzo, but I can’t come up with the initial outlay sadly.

‘I have to make do with my 2012 Ford Focus, which although reliable I doubt will sell for more than £50 in 2037 when it becomes a ‘classic’.’

A BPI Auctions spokesman said today: ‘Classic cars are typically defined as a make or model that is 25 years or older.

‘We found that the top supercar model which collectors should consider investing in is the McLaren P1.

‘The Tesla Roadster came a close second in the index, followed by the supercar Bugatti Veyron.’

David Boulton, MD of BPI Auctions, said: ‘The classic car community is huge in the UK and cars can be a lucrative investment.

‘When thinking about cars with high resale values, special edition and rare models will always have a huge demand, but collectors should also consider the history of the car and the impact it will have on the industry.

‘For example, the Tesla Roadster changed the game for electric vehicles, as it was the first road-legal all-electric car to use lithium-ion battery cells, and was the first car to be launched into space.’

The Pagani Huayra pictured, cost a staggering  £2.8m when new. After 25-30 years that could increase to £9.8m
