Compared with the previous month, in which it slightly decreased, the Mercedes-Benz Classic Index (MBCI) has increased in October by 11.51 points (8.93 pre cent), closing at the level of 140.44.
While it may not sound much, this is a record figure, as over the last twelve months the MBCI increased by 24.12 per cent.

Measured by the independent Historic Automobile Group International (HAGI), who are in the business of mapping market developments for classic cars, the Mercedes-Benz Classic Index has been almost continuously on the rise in the past year.

There is also a list of Mercedes-Benz classic models which have the potential to appreciate in value, since HAGI have noticed an activity increase in recent months. Among them there are models like the Mercedes-Benz 450 SEL 6.9 (W116), various versions of the S-Class (W126), the SL (R107) and the 500 E and E 500 (W124).

The Mercedes-Benz 300 SL (W198), in both Coupe and Roadster form, has also showed an increase on 3.2 per cent compared with September, pretty much obliterating the last remaining chance that we had to finally own one.
