Classic Car Program
Introduced in 2004, the Credit Suisse Classic Car Program has become immensely popular. Over the past decade, Credit Suisse has built a network of friends and enthusiasts who share a passion for classic cars. Its partnership of outstanding classic events, including its own rallies and its collection of historic vehicles, underline Credit Suisse’s commitment to the classic car scene.
Friends of the program include Derek Bell MBE, Jochen Mass and Alain de Cadenet. Credit Suisse also continues to support and celebrate some of the leading historic motoring events, such as Goodwood Revival.
It gives us immense pleasure to present the 26th edition of the Classic Car Auction Yearbook - the definitive guide to the most significant International auction sales of the past season. Co-authors Adolfo Orsi and Raffaele Gazzi have once again captured the essential facts, figures and shifts in last year's classic car market. Yet in this most unusual year, they have gone above and beyond. As classic car novices and connoisseurs alike can appreciate, classic cars are meant to be experienced in person, with others, and with all senses - and we have all been missing the opportunity to do so. With this in mind, this year's edition is both a nod to the past and an invitation to keep looking ahead. We expect Monaco's legendary circuit to renew with a buzz of historic racing cars and the Monaco Historique and the return of the Credit Suisse Classic Car Rally. Until then, you can enjoy the Classic Car Auction Yearbook - which Credit Suisse has proudly been sponsoring since 2009 as part of our Classic Car Program. We look forward to seeing you and other classic car enthusiasts on the road soon enough.

The Grand Prix de Monaco Historique, legendary historic racing weekend, is held every other year on the world-renowned Formula 1 race track. During the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique, Credit Suisse hosts racers, VIPs and media at the Credit Suisse Drivers Club. The Club also stages the Credit Suisse Historic Racing Forum.
Credit Suisse’s other classic car sponsorship is the iconic Goodwood Revival which encapsulates the original period of Goodwood Motor Racing (from 1948-1966). The event is widely accepted as the most unique historic racing festival in the world. As part of its continued partnership with the Goodwood Revival, Credit Suisse helped preserve the Goodwood Motor Circuit’s historic Race Control building, which was reopened after extensive restauration in 2013. The building has long been an iconic feature overlooking the Circuit, and Credit Suisse Race Control forms a central part of Credit Suisse’s activities during the Revival.
