Vaduz, Liechtenstein; ​15 June 2020 – CurioInvest, the market leader and technology pioneer for tokenized collectables, is pleased to announce its Founders Series 2015 Ferrari F12tdf CT1 digital asset capital raise.

Now clients have access to collectable assets to build a diversified portfolio with real assets. In times of market turmoil and uncertainty, CurioInvest is providing an alternative to traditional asset classes previously reserved to the very few.
Just a few weeks ago, CurioInvest business model was recognized among the top 10 Swiss FinTechs by McKinsey’s leading start-up program venture.ch as well as broadcasted on the National TV across all Switzerland.

As Credit Suisse highlighted in its 2018 report, from 1980 to 2017, classic cars were by far the best performing collectable asset. Moreover, as Hagerty Index shows from 2007 to 2019 rare Ferrari prices increased +340%, with clear spikes during the periods of monetary stimulus. However only the very wealthy few benefited from this value appreciation, until now. CurioInvest is challenging this status quo.

CurioInvest collectable car offering is reachable to all, with a low minimum purchase of just $100. Once the Soft cap is reached, the car will be professionally stored, maintained, and insured on behalf of the investors by reputable world-class partners. CT1 represents the 2015 Ferrari F12tdf of the top “concours” grade, from the highly prestigious limited-edition (799 production run), invitation-only series.

In an unprecedented manner, investors will be able to trade tokens peer to peer without any trading window restrictions or lock-ups. This unique feature enables our investors to participate seamlessly in collectable assets starting with $1 by trading directly on the upcoming exchanges.

CurioInvest founder Says: It’s a big step in expanding CurioInvest’s footprint and ecosystem and making real assets such as collectible cars accessible to the public.”

A revolution in collectables. Be part of it and make history with us.

The CT1 digital asset capital raise is expected to be finalized mid-July 2020.

Should I Invest in Classic Cars or Supercars?

Over the past decade, collectable cars have been a very profitable investment. In 2017, the Knight Frank Luxury Investment Index revealed that while assets like wine, watches and coins offered investors returns of between 3% and 10% over 12 months, cars had produced incredible returns of 28% over the same period. Unsurprisingly, this has led many to view collectable cars as a potentially clever investment rather than merely a wealthy indulgence. This change in attitude was confirmed in 2018, when German banks began advising their clients to consider purchasing classic cars as an investment.

“in any collectable market, scarcity drives value”

The raises an interesting question – if you are buying a vehicle as an investment, is it better to opt for classic cars or modern supercars? Up until very recently, the conventional wisdom among investors was that classic cars make better investments than supercars. The argument is that in any collectable market, scarcity drives value. As there is a finite number of well preserved classic cars in existence, values will continue to increase if demand does not fall.

Indeed, many of the most expensive vehicles ever sold are classic cars. As ever, Ferrari tends to lead the field in terms of price here: the most expensive car ever sold is believed to be a 1963 Ferrari GTO which cost a staggering $70 million in a private sale. The previous highest price was also for a Ferrari GTO, regarded as the holy grail in the car collecting community due to its rarity and beauty, which was sold for $52 million in 2013.

“the conventional wisdom is beginning to be challenged”

However, recently the conventional wisdom is beginning to be challenged due to two interesting trends. The first trend is that after years of stellar growth, the market for classic cars could be starting to level off. JBR Capital CEO Shalom Benaim contends that although extremely rare classics still command high prices, the average prices in the classic car market may have “plateaued”. This trend is also in evidence at big car shows, such as the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance in Florida. Overall sales have decreased at the event in recent years from $140m in 2016, to $121.3m in 2017, and $80.5m in 2018.

The LaFerrari now commands a value of around $3m, double the initial asking price.

The second trend is that the values of rare hypercars have skyrocketed recently. The Ferrari F12tdf, for example, had a production run of just 799 vehicles and an initial list price of $450,000. Just 8 months later, a well optioned F12tdf fetched a staggering $1,550,000 in a private sale, representing a growth in value of 200%. Similarly, the LaFerrari, which had a production run of 499 and an initial list price of around $1.5 million, now commands a market price of $3 million. Writing in Top Gear Magazine, Max Girardo of RM Sotheby’s Europe argues that “almost any limited-production hypercar” is a good investment.

Top Gear’s James May puts the LaFerrari through its paces.Of course, all this does not mean that you cannot make money by investing in certain classic cars. Bloomberg’s Hannah Elliot contends that despite softening in the classic car market, “people will pay plenty of money for the “right” thing—not necessarily the biggest or the most-hyped.” However, there are many more factors to consider when investing in classics, such as proof of providence, maintenance and ownership history, all of which are less onerous with newer supercars. Thus, if you can gain access to them, the smart money might be on limited edition supercars right now.
