If you’re fairly rich, feeling flush and fancy a flutter this Christmas or New Year, supercar dealer Alex Prindiville may have the answer.

You could of course plump for one of the so-called ‘Holy Trinity’ of rare exotic wheels – Ferrari’s LaFerrari; the McLaren P1 and the Porsche 918 which are collectively worth more than £4million – and which he recently had together in his showroom in London’s Limehouse.

However, for automotive fans fed up with the paltry interest rates from banks and building societies, Prindiville has just launched the UK’s first supercar ‘mini-bonds’ costing from £50,000 each.

In return for the high octane investment, purchasers are being offered annual income of 7.5 per cent.

The bond aims to raise Prindiville [...]

Investing in classic cars and supercars Mon, 12 Dec 2016 11:32:57 +0000 With the financial markets still reeling from Brexit, an uncertain economic future ahead and ultra-low interest rates the new norm, now is a perfect time to look at alternative avenues of investment.

Classic cars and supercars offer a potentially lucrative return for investors and although you can view them as a tangible asset – an investment you can touch, smell, hear, sit in and even drive – what really fires the market here is passion, Cars have a very special way of getting under your skin, of making one person feel they need to pay more for a particular model than the next person, emotion is a powerful motivator for buyers accustomed to getting what they want.

Some buyers are inspired by childhood memories. Others admire beauty and rarity. Celebrity and cinematic connections will always be a [...]

Vroom for manoeuvre Fri, 25 Nov 2016 09:36:37 +0000 vroom

In 1978 my grandfather offered to sell my father his maroon Aston Martin DB5 for £4,000. They were about to do the deal when my father realised that he couldn’t fit both my brother’s child seat and my carrycot in the back. He passed — and bought a Renault estate instead. At the Goodwood Revival this year, Bonhams sold a similar DB5 for £455,100. I wonder if my father curses me and that bloody carrycot.

The DB5 built between 1963 and 1965, once the preserve of a special breed of enthusiasts, is now attracting serious investment money. It’s not the only model in that category. James Wheeler, a specialist at H&H car auctions, told me about a friend of his who bought a Ferrari 275 GTB for around £80,000 in the 1990s: it’s now [...]

High Octane Supercar Bond Pays 7.5 PC a Year Mon, 21 Nov 2016 12:55:54 +0000 The Sunday Telegraph
Well-heeled investors have been offered an annual income of 7.5pc from a “min-bond” issued by a supercar dealership.

Mini-bonds offer high rates of interest to savers who are prepared to lend directly to companies. However, the bonds are untradeable and lightly regulated, so the risks are high. Several mini-bonds have failed.

The supercar bond, issued by Prindiville, has a five-year term and will be backed by the firm’s stock of exotic vehicles, which it expects to include Ferraris, Lamborghinis and McLarens.

However, the minimum investment is high at £50, 000. Prindiville plans to raise £12m from the bonds.
