The Top 100 Collector Car Markets of 2022

The S&P 500 finished the year down 19.4% from last year. If you had taken that money and invested in any of these collector cars instead, you’d be a much happier camper. 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 Top 100 Collector Car Markets of 2022 – the top models of classic and exotic cars whose overall market value has increased over the past year.

While all of the markets in the chart below performed well over the entire year, it’s important to note that we saw a shift mid-year, when the broader economic effects of inflation and the war in Ukraine effected markets around the world, including the collector car market. To account for that, we have noted the current growth rate of each market with 1 of 3 colors in the “2022 Growth” column:

  • Green: the market has grown over 10% in the last half of the year
  • Grey: the market is stablizing with growth between 0-10% in the last half of the year
  • Red: the market is slowing down, with negative growth in the last half of the 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
