Ratings System Explained

Understanding the International Classic Automobile Authentication & Rating System.

ICAARS ratings are published in a certificate with private inspection information available as a corresponding report.

A certificate compiles our complex scoring algorithm into a simple 360 degree overview. An ICAARS Rating is read as a number as a percentage out of 100 (defining Condition) followed by a letter (defining Collectability). For example, 100A would represent the most collectable in perfect condition.

ICAARS Certificates contain the following key metrics;

  • CONDITION – This measurement outlines a vehicle’s current condition. The Condition score provides guidance as to a vehicles’ overall condition upon inspection. This score is based on a 900 point check, considering a vehicle’s provenance, factory options, under carriage, engine bay, interior, boot, exterior and body, wheels and tyres, paint and repairs.
    Condition is scored as a percentage (number out of 100) with >90 presenting in pristine condition per factory specification.
  • COLLECTABILITY – This measurement outlines how collectable a vehicle is. The Collectability score provides guidance as to a vehicle type’s suitability for collection (something of value either in a collection or to a collector). This score considers factors such as provenance, number produced, limited editions, market trends, popularity and demand.
    Collectability is scored from A-F with an “A” representing a highly collectable vehicle and an “F” the least desirable.
  • STAR RATING – Star ratings depict the combined collectability and condition of a vehicle, along with a visual representation of category-specific results.
  • POTENTIALITY – An outline of prospective improvements that are available to increase the potential rating and value of a vehicle. The Potentiality section outlines identified areas for improvement and the reflected rating that may be achieved.
