Hagerty released their “hot list” of future classics and there are some interesting cars that made the top ten vehicle list this year. One car is the 2015 Subaru WRX STI Launch Edition. You won’t find one on dealer lots unless it’s a pre-owned model because Subaru only produced 1000 of the special edition STIs. The STI Launch Edition paid special homage to the Brand’s rally racing heritage with it’s iconic WR Blue Pearl exterior paint and Gold BBS alloy wheels.

Hagerty says STI Launch Edition will become a classic

The 1000 examples that made their way to U.S. shores originally sold for $38,190 and Hagery says the Launch Edition is destined to become a classic. Here’s what Hagerty says about the iconic performance car. “With a stiffer body, advanced suspension and a turbocharged Boxer four cylinder, the STI is a factory-built rally car that you can drive off the showroom floor. The smile-inducing acceleration is simply intoxicating, and the very limited release Launch Edition will be loved by collectors and rally fans for years to come.”

What other cars made the Hagert’s hot list of future classics?

In order of appearance on the list starting with #1, Alfa Romeo 4C Launch Edition ($69,685), BMW M4 Convertible ($73,450), Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 ($75,000), Chevrolet Corvette Z06 ($78,995), Dodge Challenger Hellcat ($58,295), Ford Mustang GT Performance Package ($37,125), Mazda MX-5 Miata 25th Anniversary Edition ($33,000), Mini JCW Hardtop ($24,950), Subaru WRX STI Launch Edition ($38,190), Volkswagen Golf R ($36,595).
