Note: we are still seeing some adjustment in the CCP100 to account for the increased number of British auctions we now cover (covering a higher volume of cars that make up the index).

All indices we’re down on Q1 this quarter. American Muscle performed best posting just a 1% loss on Q1, leaving it only 2% down for the year.

Ferrari, German Collectables, Blue Chip, and British Collectables were all down from between 5.5% - 7.5%. This has eroded most of the gains these indicies have made in the last 12 months, with only German Collectables showing a 12 month rise of 1.79%.

These four indices pulled down the CCP100 this quarter, down 5% at 284 points. That’s 4% down on this time last year.
