Which classic cars are most likely to be involved in an accident?
It’s true that owners of classic cars are less likely to have a road accident than drivers of newer cars. But that’s not to say accidents don’t happen. Here are some of the classics that pop up in insurance claims.
- Chevrolet Corvette
The Corvette has been around since 1953 and is a popular choice for fans of American classics.
- TVR Griffith 500
Under the bonnet of the Griffith 500 is a powerful 5.0-litre that produces 340 horsepower and 350lb ft of torque. That makes it a challenge in wet weather and might account for its presence on this list.
- Rolls-Royce Corniche
Although luxury cars tend to be driven with care, they can still attract scuffs and scrapes. The Corniche, basically a two-door Silver Shadow, was once Britain’s most expensive car.
- Ford Mustang
Until very recently, Mustangs were not officially available in the UK. Older models are left-hand-drive imports which can make spotting hazards trickier.
- Mercedes-Benz SLK
A modern classic car that can be picked up for less than £2,000 but shop around as they may be hiding badly repaired accident damage.
- Porsche Boxster S
Dating back to 1996, the Boxster is a lower cost alternative to the 911. This model, the 3.2-litre Boxster S was launched in 2000.
- Nissan Figaro
This Japanese car was based on the Micra but was a popular ‘grey import’ in the UK thanks to its retro styling.
- BMW Z3
Another post-2000 two-seater sports car which shot to stardom with a role in James Bond’s adventure “Goldeneye”.
- TVR Tuscan
The 1960s Tuscan name was brought back in the new millennium with the Speed Six range.
- Jaguar XK8
And at number one: The Jaguar XK8. Another powerful modern classic that can be a costly car to fix.
