To stand apart from the rest, as an antidote to the many ‘supercar only’ groups, I created Engine Notes to celebrate the one thing that binds us together; the automobile.
We speak a universal language; meet a fellow lover of the automotive arts anywhere in the world and you see how the love of machines motivates diverse groups to interact, share knowledge and opinion, and collectively voice the joy of machines.
Everything that Engine Notes puts out into the world, events, articles, podcasts all make visible the shared passions and love we have for the motorcar through:
(1) The joy of driving. We've built an annual driving programme exploring vehicle dynamics and push our own limits as drivers, in controlled environments, and classic supported tours both here and abroad.
(2) Celebrating and learning from each others' mindsets, hard-work and personal successes, exactly what it takes to invest in, collect and enjoy these glorious machines.
(3) Become the largest global collector network; make lasting connections built on trust amongst strangers you feel like you have known your whole life.
Engine Notes is dedicated to helping you acquire remarkable vehicles, achieve market leading sales, connect with the right cars when its time to buy, share the kind of candid advice that’s surprisingly hard to find in the industry, and enjoy an annual calendar of tailored events in beautiful locations, surrounded by thrilling roads, world-wide.
We understand the value of every historic, classic and remarkable machine, and we love to share that data, for free - but only to the Engine Notes community.
This is a very emotionally driven market we trade in, our auction platform employs a structured approach typically seen in the banking sector to index and track the market, we scan for individual marque and model valuations, and if when all of our trading on the platform is great enough, we are able to not only predict values but start to set them for the market, there is strength in numbers, the more transactions (Sell/Buy) the more the market will follow us and strengthen your investments.
We are constantly watching collectible car values and seeing sales being transacted at the wrong price for the market all the time. On our platform we make sure vehicles are valued correctly, and when you wish to sell reserves set intelligently, whether buying or selling you can be sure you will sell your purchase or sale transact at its correct hammer price.
Now is a great time re-evaluate the car(s) you own, and an even better time to buy, sell and expand a collection.
We are always happy to talk, strategise and share confidential valuations and advice.
Collecting and investing in vehicles grew from an appreciation of the performance, rarity and history of specific marques and models, thanks in the most part to motorsport.
Gladiatorial drivers, Ascari, Fangio, Stirling Moss, Ken Miles, Ayrton Senna and Michael Schumacher gave brands such as Auto Union, Aston Martin, Lotus, Mercedes, Ford and Ferrari legendary status and created a unique glamour the speed and a soul to the art of driving.
The annual driving programme uses tarmac, gravel, snow and ice as tools for finding your limit and ultimately enjoying more of the performance of your car, whether you driver a pre-war great, a more modern classic or a current supercar. We've split the programme into levels; for some levels FIA spec race/rally cars are provided, and others are completed in your own car on the track, supported the entire way by our instructors who have 100's year's experience between them including national and world titles.
