disagree about the investment. that is a sort of modus operandi "car guys" have.. trying to persuade owners to get out more so that they can see these cars lol rather than just hearing about them lmao.. im game but i have to say that each and every car is to some degree an investment. sadly the big money wins on them are "said and done" like the mclaren f1 or the 250 gto.. waiting for that to happen again well better time waiting on a gust of wind to fly a kite .. but never leave it out of the equation. i bought an rx7 in the middle of the 90s and i could sell it now for more than what i paid then. how many cars can say that? next to none lol so theres a point to what hes saying.. but its not the" end all " either. cause with stocks the way they are a huge win on a car like that well sounds very inviting .. but its brick and mortar and i think those are always risky or id be in real estate.

So glad you mentioned the Mclaren Harry. I did just that a year ago and haven’t regretted it one bit. In fact it’s a special occasion every time I roll her out. Great informative blog, and I look forward to seeing more. Well done.

Harry is amazing and gentlemen but ....... typical english one. He forget there is plenty of German, Italian and Japanese cars much, much, much better then English cars. I understand there is few English cars are not rubbish but there is much more German, Italian or Japanese unique cars and there are simply amazing. BMW M, Mercedes AMG, Porsche and even Audis and VWs. Toyota and a Honda hav as well.

I agree with just get a the more base option to start and if you like it upgrade to the bigger better faster. Its better to have something than waiting on that top end something that is going to take you another 10 years to save for, and due to lifes surprises, you may never get.

Only recently stumbled on Harry’s channel. Really enjoy his unscripted, articulate expositions of the cars he owns and drives. And that for me is the what sets him apart - his cars are not simply for looking at, they are to be driven and enjoyed. For me, it’s the next best thing to actually owning them. Keep it going Harry👍

I work with people that own exotics from 2010-15, top end german cars from a similar time; one of the most expensive cars that's owned (total cost) is the Audi RS5 (8T). It's with a specialist now having £5.5k worth of parts fixed, let alone man hours and VAT!

I have noticed a number of folk buying modern classics then unable to get them repaired properly. I say properly, because there seem to be plenty of dubious ability 'service' providers. My Dad was a WWII REME mechanic and I learned from him how to take care of vehicles. Without that background plus some highly skilled friends, I'm not sure I would dabble in hard to maintain cars.

Those cars are endless money pits. I love the design but I’m sticking with my Mazda cx3, it does 70km in the corner and cost me $20k Canadian dollars. Zonda is no good in the salty snow.

Great and interesting video as usual. Got to comment the prices on cars in the UK verses in Sweden where I live. What a huge difference.....Porsche Boxters starting from 4500 pounds and Jaguar F-type V8s from 30K thats cheap. If I look for a Jaguar F-type V8s it's about 48K and Boxters starting from 10K.

The best Veyron statement I’ve ever seen is (roughly) “it has the running cost of a small helicopter..... and I just don’t see people spending that sort of money, especially considering it’s common for that class of buyer”. Not manny will I concur but at least a few will, Look at the EB110.

There are still affordable investment cars. Simply look at the beloved cars of millennials or Gen Z'ers. Great example are Mitsubishi EVOs. They will skyrocket in price in 15 years as the bulk of them rust out or end up in the crusher.

Harry I'm 100% with you. Zonda is a car that's doing its best to be perfect. Countach don't want to be perfect at all. Lambo is feeling and imperfection. Pagani is the pursuit of excellence. Lambo wins on a emotional level. Win hands down 🇮🇹 vince a mani basse 💟

OMG I can't believe you mentioned the Fiat 500. I've had quite a variety of cars in my time and just recently, while contemplating my next car suddenly decided that the Fiat 500 was just so stylish that I like it. EVERYONE that I mentioned it to just howled with laughter and honestly thought I was joking. Then when I convinced them I was serious it just made them laugh all over again. Like I say, I generally go for performance so this is one car that nobody would expect me to like. If I had the space and spare cash I'd definitely get a Fiat 500 and just leave it parked up and take it out for a fun jaunt now and again.

Supra mk4 is an iconic car and also can be viewed as a good investment because it's well build in contrast to most supercars that are pile of expensive junk.

Great video. But why push the electrification? Yes, torque curve is better. But lithium is not a sustainable metal to produce for a market that as big as the one associated with cars. Electric cars have prices that exceed mass market appeal, and some of the metals associated with their introduction to mass transit are spectacularly toxic to humans. Without them, battery tech / life / useability will suffer, don't you think? People around the world are working just as hard to burn hydrogen in the old IC engine as the people who are working to produce a car battery that will charge up in five minutes. While some pundits are faced with choices defined for them by the politicians and shoved down their throats by unethical business types, I believe that between cellphones and computers there isn't enough copper, beryllium, cadmium, molybdenum in the world to sustain 60 Million autos every year (2020 projected market size). Tech has a long way to go before that happens. Now there might be consensus among the current crop of auto manufacturers to go with EV's as long as it is politically expedient for them to do so but who to tell - if the hydrogen production and implementation problems are solved - that a new crop of IC engine manufacturers won't spring up? Like you have rightly said in your other video, the UK might have moved too early on EV legislation here. And I am not saying that EV's don't have a place. But as a mass market transport sol'n? How many people exist now that can rewind one of these newfangled high hoss pressure electric motors at home? BGA SMD board repair is beyond the scope of the average home owner too. Should be for years to come. Don't be so defeatist!
