The Montreal Gazette asks the question; “what cars of today will be future collectibles?” Guess what turns up first on the list:

“Mini Cooper S: It is a reborn legend, front-wheel-drive with a wide stance, low center of gravity, and the stickiness of a go-kart. In base form, it comes with a supercharged, 170-horsepower engine. I'd go for the John Cooper Works version, plunk down the $25,000-plus (all figures in U.S. dollars), and scream into tomorrow.”
