>Your Mini Cooper tops out at 126 miles per hour and squeaks out the power of a mere 118 horses. But what this glorified clown car lacks in punch, it will pay for over time — according to the “Hagerty Hot List” the Mini could be worth nearly five times as much in 50 years.
>2007 starting sticker price: $18,700
>2057 prediction: $56,100 to $93,500
>”Absolutely the Mini Cooper because it just has such style. Plus, the way it was launched clubs formed around people buying before it was even out. It has all the elements of having a cult following around it, which makes it more valuable than the car itself.”
