The Cooling Collector Car Markets of 2022

The S&P 500 finished the year down 19.4% from last year, and many of us are wondering if we would have been better off putting our money elsewhere. While many collector cars gained value in 2022, there were some markets that certainly lost value. Throughout the year, we’ve tracked sale prices from the leading auction venues around the world (live and online), and used that data to present to you the Cooling Collector Car Markets of 2022 – the models of classic and exotic cars whose overall market value has decreased over the past year.

Tips on using this chart:

  • Click on the name of a Market to view all sales tracked in the last 5 years
  • Use the Search box to view all Markets of a certain Make (ex: Porsche, Ferrari, Toyota)
  • Sort the list by clicking on each Column header
  • Refresh the page to re-sort the list back to the initial setting
  • The current growth rate of each market is reflected in the color of the “2022 Growth” column – you’ll see red if the market is still declining,grey if it is stabilizing, and one market in green because it’s on the upswing recently.
