64 THE SHOP APRIL 2017 \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ f you've ever wondered about buying a brand-new car and storing it in a shed somewhere while it grows in stature and value, classic car insur- ance company Hagerty has rolled out its Hot List of 2017's most likely future col- lectibles. According to the valuation experts at Hagerty, 10 vehicles in the 2017 produc- tion run by major worldwide automakers stand out as the likeliest to grow in value and appeal to enthusiasts as fully drivable classic collectibles in the future. "All 10 have that it factor that makes them stand out from the crowd," said McKeel Hagerty, CEO of Hagerty. "In some cases it's power, in some cases it's innovation or drivability, but all of them have the qualities that define a future classic." In order to be eligible for the list, a vehicle must be produced within the 2017 model year and have an MSRP of less than $100,000. This year's list includes: Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio ($72,000) – Packing 505 hp, the Giulia Quadrifoglio can reach 60 mph in 3.8 seconds from a complete standstill via a biturbo V-6 engine. Audi TT-RS ($60,000 est.) –With 400 hp from a new 5-cylinder, the TT-RS corners at an extreme 1.2 G-forces and accelerates from 0-62 mph in only 3.7 seconds. Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 ($61,140) –The 2017 Camaro ZL1 has a stat sheet that would make last year's Corvette nervous, and comes to the table ready to race. Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 ($40,995) – The ZR2 features a suite of off-road tech including dynamic shocks, locking front/ rear differentials, increased ride height and widened track. Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport ($65,450) – The Grand Sport has the tech- nology to compete with the big boys while offering a striking visual reference to its ancestors: the 1963 and 1996 Grand Sports. Fiat 124 Spider Abarth ($28,195) – The 124 Spider makes plenty of power through a MultiAir turbo engine with true Italian verve. Ford Raptor ($49,520) –For 2017, the Raptor is back with bigger muscles and a makeover, featuring additional horsepower and having lost 500 pounds. Mazda Miata RF ($31,555) – Featuring the same qualities that made the roadster Miata such a hit last year, the RF opens the door to a new market with a more rigid structure and coupe-like design. Porsche 718 Cayman/Boxster ($53,900- $56,000) – Those who have a love for cars have a love for driving and few things are better to drive than the 2017 Porsche 718 lineup. Toyota 86 ($26,255) –The 86 brings on more aggressive styling with a wider stance while agility is turned up a notch through shock tuning and a spring rate change.
