The Collector Car Price indices tracked 42 auctions with 1,155 cars sold during Q1 2018, that’s double the volume of Q4 2017. Our indices only track a small handful of particularly prized makes sold during the quarter – you can access all Q1 sale data here (7530 sales in total).
Market conditions Q1 2018
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).
The start of 2018 saw good growth from German, British, American and Affordable indices all up between 5.5% - 6.5%. The Ferrari Index was down 9% in Q1, leaving it up just 3% for the last 12 months, and 235% since 2004. The Blue Chips almost fared badly, down 7.5% last quarter. Overall these big gains and losses leave the CCP100 slightly lower than Q4 2017, by 0.7%.
