Classic car insurance needed for new movie roles?

Upcoming movies and TV shows are set to feature well-known motors from decades past.

Retro car insurance is likely to have been needed for the driver of the Audi Quattro, which takes centre stage in the final series of BBC time-twisting drama Ashes to Ashes.

According to British Car Auctions (BCA), the popularity of such a set of wheels will probably increase as more episodes of the series air.

Moreover, a new film from creators of The Office - Steven Merchant and Ricky Gervais - might pique the interest of fans of 1970s classic motors.

Cemetery Junction is due for release on April 19th and BCA said cars from the era - including a 1976 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow 6.7-litre saloon and 1979 Triumph Dolomite -have been in demand lately.

"There are a number of clubs and associations dedicated to preserving vehicles from that era," explained PR manager Tim Naylor. "It's not just the top-end exotica either - it's everything from family runabouts to the early fleet cars."
