Revealed: the Geneva supercars that have rocketed in value

Lamborghini Veneno 2013

The Geneva Motor Show has seen its fair share of supercar debuts over the past decade, many of which have rocketed in value since their release. Others have fared less well and are worth significantly less in 2019.

Thanks to data released by JBR Captial, we can reveal the top 10 supercars that have appreciated in value or held their worth after premiering in Geneva. This should make for interesting reading if you’re about to take delivery of the unique £12 million Bugatti La Voiture Noire.

At its launch in 2013, the Lamborghini Veneno cost a cool £2.6 million, but there was no shortage of potential customers for the 221mph hypercar. Lamborghini built three customers cars, and today they’re worth around £7.3 million apiece. That’s a value change of 180 percent.

Meanwhile, a Ferrari LaFerrari has more than doubled in value, rising from £1.15 million to £4 million. It’s a similar story for Koenigsegg One:1 owners – up from £2 million to £4 million.

‘An outstanding car’

Stephen Halstead, executive chief operating officer at JBR Capital, said, “It’s unsurprising that the Lamborghini Veneno, Ferrari LaFerrari and Koenigsegg One:1 have stolen the limelight in terms of current values. The Veneno is quite simply an outstanding car.

“Only 499 of the Ferrari LaFerrari hybrid hypercars were produced, with buyers back in 2013 having more than doubled their money invested in this incredible vehicle. With just seven Koenigsegg One:1 hypercars in existence, offering a top speed of 273mph, this model has quite rightly hit a 100 percent level of appreciation.”

Of the 2019 Geneva Motor Show supercars, Halstead points to the La Voiture Noire, Pagani Huayra BC Roadster, Pininfarina Battista, Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Roadster and Ferrari F8 Tributo as “ones to watch”.

Not that buying a supercar or a high-end sports car is a passport to make money. If your head was turned by the Maserati Quattroporte on display at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, you’d have lost the best part of £70,000.

In percentage terms, the Bugatti Chiron has performed relatively well, but you’d have lost £300,000 in the three years since the Veryon replacement made its Geneva debut.
