Classic Car

The term 'classic' on the used car market generally refers to an older car of notability or high quality; this covers a wide range of subcategories, from vintage to antique cars. In the US, an antique car can be a mere 20 years old, whilst in the UK a vehicle must have been built at least 45 years ago to qualify for this title. Amongst motor enthusiasts, the term 'vintage' refers to cars dated between 1919 and 1930; some of the most famous examples of vintage automobiles are the Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost and Ford Model T. Later popular classic cars include the Jaguar E-Type; manufactured between 1961 and 1975, the E-Type gained its iconic status on account of its stunning design, innovative mechanics and unrivalled comfort. The E-Type - amongst other British classics - is a regular at car acutions, and can sell for anything between $45,000-$7,370,000.
