The classic car experts at Hagerty have named the 2016 Dodge Viper SRT model and the Alfa Romeo 4C Spider to its annual Hot List of future collectible vehicles. The Hagerty Group, based in Traverse City, Mich., is the world’s leading insurance provider for classic vehicles and host to the largest network of classic car owners.
“The Viper checks all the boxes for a future collectible,” McKeel Hagerty, CEO of Hagerty, said. “Limited-volume, race-bred pedigree, iconic styling and raw power make it a natural choice for the 2016 Hot List.”
The 2016 Hagerty Hot List represents the most collectible cars priced less than $100,000 available for purchase today. To be selected by the Hagerty experts for their annual Hot List, a vehicle must deliver the joy of driving today, continue to further every gearhead’s love of driving and become collectible in the future.
“The Dodge Viper is an iconic, hand-built American supercar with a 645-horsepower hand-built aluminum V-10 engine, a timeless and hand-crafted body design with a strong racing pedigree and very limited production over its nearly 25-year lifespan,” Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Car Brands–Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America, said. “The 2016 Dodge Viper ACR’s unprecedented 13 track records add to the legend, and the exclusive 1-of-1 program with 25 million unique build configurations helps make it an exclusive collectible among today’s supercars.”
With racing heritage, style and advanced technologies, Alfa Romeo vehicles have always been one of the most desired among collectors and enthusiasts, and Hagerty highlights the Alfa Romeo 4C Spider’s stand-out combination of Italian design and hand craftsmanship, race-inspired technologies and supercar level performance as reasons it was added to the list.
“At a time when many vehicles are growing increasingly larger and more sophisticated, the Alfa Romeo 4C Spider offers a refreshing alternative with an extremely lightweight and simple roadster,” said McKeel Hagerty, CEO of Hagerty. “It provides the same amount of fun as far more exotic and pricier vehicles.”
The 2016 Hagerty Hot List represents the most collectible cars under $100,000 to buy today. In order to be selected by Hagerty experts for their annual Hot List, a vehicle must deliver the joy of driving today, will continue to further every gearhead’s love of driving and become collectible in the future.
“We are honored that our Alfa Romeo 4C Spider was named to Hagerty’s Hot List of future collectible vehicles,” said Reid Bigland, Head of Alfa Romeo North America. “This recognition is also confirmation that a carbon fiber chassis, mid-engine setup, incredible driving dynamics and seductive Italian design will never go out of favor.”
