Similar to the current volatility in the financial markets, all our classic car trackers fell in Q4 2018.
The Collector Car Price indices tracked 37 auctions with 279 index cars sold in Q4. The number of auction tracks was similar to Q3, but successful sales slumped by almost 50% with many cars going unsold.
Market conditions Q4 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).
With sales slowing down, all indices struggled to make significant gains. The bump the high value Blue Chip and Ferrari indices received in Q3 was all but wiped out in Q4.
The effect on the CCP100 was fairly minimal, down just 5% for the quarter. The CCP100 is actually up 4.6% on last year because of a tough 2017 for classic car sales.

300 SL sales dominate sales this quarter, as they have for many others. The $3.5 million Porsche 911 tops the indices sale charts and will be a favourite of “bling” lovers.
