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, including the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique and Goodwood Revival.
It is our great pleasure to present to you the 25th edition of the Classic Car Auction Yearbook. The auction guide, now reporting its 27th season of results, is considered the most respected and trusted resource book for all classic car enthusiasts. We thank our co-authors Adolfo Orsi and Raffaele Gazzi for having meticulously put together this invaluable reference book packed with facts, figures, and trends from the world of classic car auctions. Our sponsorship of the Classic Car Auction Yearbook is part of Credit Suisse’s Classic Car Program, which ties in to our long-standing partnerships with Grand Prix de Monaco Historique and the Goodwood Revival. I hope that you enjoy your reading and wish you many miles of happy and memorable road trips.

Partner of Leading International Classic Car Events
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.
