Limited edition cars have always been rarer than their mass produced counterparts so it isn’t a surprise it’s those models that make it onto the 2015 Hagerty Hot List. The collector car experts over at Hagerty release an annual list naming what vehicles are most likely to be collectibles in 25 years.
To qualify, vehicles must be produced in the current year, cost less than $100,000, and special consideration goes to new launches not already on previous lists.
This year Subaru made its way onto the list, which also included the Dodge Challenger Hellcat (#5), Mustang GT Performance Package (#6), and Chevrolet Corvette Z06 (#4). The Subaru WRX STI Launch Edition took the number nine spot. Starting at $38,190, it’s one of the less expensive models but according to the experts, it packs a punch.
Hagerty’s reasons for selecting the Subaru WRX STI Launch Edition are what we would expect. With a turbocharged Boxer four cylinder engine, advanced suspension, and a stiff body, the STI is very similar to a rally car. The acceleration is more than enough to give any enthusiast’s heart a jumpstart and, as a limited Launch Edition, there’s no doubt collectors will want this car for their collections within the next 25 years.
