The Mercedes-Benz Classic Index (MBCI) fell slightly during August 2013, reaching an index price of 138.84 (down 0.54 per cent), but it's still maintaining a highly positive development if calculated since the beginning of the year.
With an overall increase of 23.69 per cent since 2013 started, the index sits way above the long-term annual average for other carmakers.

In August, the MBCI was influenced by a number of Mercedes-Benz auction results from Monterey and a number of tradings in the private market, which took place despite being a summer break.

Apart from a slight increase in pricing patterns for the 300 SL Roadster (W198), Mercedes-Benz pre-war classics continue to be among the models to maintain their importance to the index on a regular basis.

As you know, the MBCI is measured by the Historic Automobile Group International (HAGI, just like the famous football/soccer player), which is an independent research institute for investments and is specialized in rare classic cars.
