Three big auctions in 10 days – it’s the UK equivalent of Monterey Motorweek. We take a look at how the auction houses got on (avoiding the written word) with a handy infographic.
Generally speaking, classic car auction results appear in the media out of context. For example, journalists will concentrate on the top 10 results, the total amount sold or focus on a handful of individual cars. What they really need to be doing is looking for trends, and that’s exactly what we have done for the three big auctions of “Super September”. To give a flavour of the trends we produced this infographic from all the results data we gathered and we also created heatmaps of which lots performed above or below their potential. Obviously there are many factors that influence sales prices but the colour coding on our heatmaps really does make the task of searching for patterns amongst the results much easier and we highly recommend taking a look. If you would like to discuss any of the results please feel free to get in touch – we can also provide the data as spreadsheets for the statisticians amongst you.
