Independent investment researchers HAGI are publishing monthly data to measure and track values of the rare and collectable car market. This is currently reflected in one overall and four specialized (marque) indices, each using a rigorous financial methodology usually associated with more traditional investments.
In May the classic car market continued its general price correction. The HAGI Top Index declined 1.75 points or 0.52% MOM, reaching a price of 332.75, down 3.83% YTD, which is now below October 2016 price levels.
Against this trend the HAGI MBCI (Mercedes-Benz Classic Index) increased again with 2.15% compared with April and is up 6.86% for 2017. Year on year the MBCI has posted a superior performance of 16.6%. According to HAGI this result reflects the characteristics of the marque and is also down to the broader composition of the index including younger models made in larger numbers, mostly at lower price points than rarer constituents of other HAGI marque indices.
Collectors generally preferred higher levels of liquidity and pricing transparency compared to iconic cars above £500,000. Another model that was doing well in this market for similar reasons was the Jaguar XKE Series 1.
