The Collector Car Price indices tracked 59 auctions with 948 cars sold during Q2 2018, that’s slightly less than Q1 2018. Our indices only track a small handful of particularly prized makes sold during the quarter – you can access all Q2 sale data here (6841 sales in total).
Market conditions Q2 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).
All indices lost value during Q2 of 2018. Blue Chip (-9.00%<), Ferrari (-8.06%) and British (-6.90%) indices suffered the worst since the last quarter. Overall these collection brought the CCP 100 down by -6.09%, in some part held lower thanks to the static price growth of the Affordable Classics (-0.48%). Blue Chips are down -11.53% for the year, but we expect this to swing upwards in Q3 following the Monterey sales.
