The book is presented in its regular large format (240mm x 315mm) hardback style, printed on good quality
gloss paper. As it has for the past few years, the cover depicts the most valuable car sold at auction during
the period in question, and in the 2018 -2019 period it was once again a Ferrari, this time a 1956 Ferrari 290
MM, chassis # 0628, which achieved US$22,005,000 at the RM Sotheby’s auction in Los Angeles in
December 2018, whilst once again six of the top ten sales during the period were Ferraris.
The 2018 - 2019 edition runs to 400 pages, within which there is a veritable bounty of facts and figures,
presented in various forms. It also provides a market analysis and an alphabetical descriptive list of the cars
offered at auction during the period that the book covers, with the sale price including buyer’s premium quoted
in US Dollars, Pounds Sterling and Euros, based on the exchange rate at the time of the auctions in
question. There are also features like graphical analysis of trends, i.e. for specific manufacturing periods, or
different marques and models, along with an amazing amount of other useful and fascinating information.
The Yearbook is considered as “The Bible” by many associated with collecting, buying and selling classic
cars, and even for the general classic car enthusiast it makes for compelling reading. It is available from most
major motoring booksellers, although if there is any difficulty in obtaining a copy, visit the Classic Car Auction
