Sales are not common but with each one in good condition it keeps getting higher.
I also judge by trends not quarterly numbers as they are not very reliable. On freak auction sale can distort the truth.
@hyperv6 it might comfort you to know that I am heavily involved in the Hagerty Price Guide, so I completely get your point. Merely pointing out that not much was going on with the F40 between now and January, and we did see some reported sales. If anything the others are catching up.
I just pointed out in my opinion shotvterm observations today are difficult to gauge as true long term gains.
One freak sale can set a tone that may very well be true.
Auctions like Barrett Jackson have created many false flags.
A number of these exotics never even get to auction or the sold price disclosed.
Often so few exchange that you need to look at several years of results to see if you have a real trend.
Not disputing you. I just look at things differently to get what I feel is a better idea of a trend.
@hyperv6 correct me if I’m assuming incorrectly, but I get a bit of a feeling that the assumption is that we completely rely on auctions to estimate the market. While auctions are nice because we can look at reported sales, leaning on one source of information is not a great way to get the big picture. With cars of this level, we do rely on conversations with marque experts who do have insight to those more likely private sales. Sorry if I made it seem like we lean on only auctions. Just wanted to set the record straight.
Ok that was not clear.
Still many auctions anymore are distorting the market in my opinion. And that is all I am giving here. It is nothing to get disturbed about.
I also personally take the future predicted collectable prices with a grain of salt as they are not always true.
I am the hobby for the love not the investment and these sections are just comments for we the readers. That is all I am doing comments.
Like predicting sports you can use all the numbers on who will do what yet the results alway vary. No one saw the Bengals in the Super Bowl vs LA
So please this is not a specific critic of you or these specific prices. Intake all reports the same way with a. It of skepticism.
Heck my one car was predicted to be a $100k car at one point by 2000. It is far from that. But I never bought it for that reason. It is worth more than I paid and that is fine with me but I have no plans to trade anyway.
I personally take these reports to be more entertaining than anything.
Bug 110 SS sales are not very common and I doubt many here are using this to plot their next purchase.
