At which point prices start going up?

Hi, there's only 22 Alfa 166 curently sold in UK on autotrader, 17 on pistonheads. So at which point prices start going up? There must be less than 200 on the road at the momemt. I havent seen one for ages. I know they are slightly ugly ( front ), but i secretly want one.
PS. has any one done 2.4 jtd conversion?

Not so sure about cars but I've spent a lot of time dabbling in classic motorbikes. Rock bottom price is usually 10-15 years old. After that prices tend to creep up and start to show big rises at ~25 years old. Obviously, all driven by supply vs demand though and I have a strong suspicion that thirsty cars will lose some asppeal in the future.

I can't honestly see any price rises coming for the 166, even if they are a bit scarce. Large cars have historically always lost value quickly. People assume they are thirsty, but it's not necessarily always the case. Your consumption will depend largely on what kind of driving you do. If you live on the motorway, then the fuel consumption shouldn't be too bad at all.

I've always been a fan of large, big engined cars as a secondhand purchase, as you can get so much for your money and they are so nice to drive. Go for it - you know you want to!

How Many Left?

A lot more than 200!

Don't know where they all are though - I don't recall seeing one around here for years!

Although if anyone happens to have a 166 Twin Spark Turismo, I'd take very good care of it if I were you - http://howmanyleft.co.uk/vehicle/alf...tspark_turismo

Just because they are rare doesn't always mean they have value.
