Hagerty has had many positive articles about the Evora but their valuation tool doesn't include Evora. Their site does allow you to request that it be added though. If you'd like to see it added please send them a message. The more requests, the more likely they'll add it!

Yeah, done. And my Evora is insured through Hagerty. The S2 Europa too, for that matter.

Trying to decide if it's really a benefit to Evora owners and the cars' resale values for Hagerty to have a valuation tool telling us what they're worth. :unsure:

As far as I know they just compile data and show trends. I think their positive articles may lead some to want to know "how much for one of those? "
The more that do should lead to more interest and drive prices up, I would think. Evoras were off my radar until about a month before I bought one. Did my research and bought one.

I would argue that online car valuation tools lead to increased commoditization of the used car market, a function which rarely benefits the holder of an asset.

I'd rather the potential buyer of my car have less pricing info out there and just a few highly priced sales.. These evaluation help the buyers more than the sellers.

While I agree with the view point that we do not want Hagerty to set the value of the car, BAT is already showing sales price history for used Evoras. It's not something we can control as these cars become more popular. Supply is limited so it is sort of non-fungible and will hold it's own value.

I feel that transparency is always best and will result in a fair exchange for both parties.

I don't think prices will drop a lot across the range at this point so trends showing flat and hopefully upwards will be good info for all. They've called these future classics so any bias would be to sport their own prediction. IMHO
