Perhaps Maslow can Explain.

The motivation for buying an expensive motor car, whether new or classic, will vary; inevitably, there will always be overlap between both fortunate groups.

The classic buyer will cite historical significance, nostalgia, exclusivity, rarity and investment.

Whilst the new buyer will refer to technology, performance, innovation and prestige.

But whatever the reason, there must be something hidden in Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs explaining the requirement to spend such eye-watering sums.
