Idea

We founded Mecanicus out of a passion for classic cars. We believe that the classic car market is archaic, highly fragmented and intermediary-driven, putting the transmission of this passion to future generations at risk.

We provide a tech-driven classic car marketplace based on three key elements:

1. We mainly own the cars to ensure our own quality & reliability standards, providing a different client experience as the relationship is based on car ownership and not acting as a broker.

2. We leverage our double-digit million outreach built through our social media in-house content to sell fast (less than 3 weeks).

3. We provide an AI-driven pricing and scouting tool to challenge the current market opacity and create a modern deal-flow source.

Since launching operational activities in 2020 we have sold 43 cars in less than a year, achieving €1.75m in revenues, and have worked with key clients incl. Fiat, Peugeot, Retromobile, Citroen.

We estimate a 50bn$ global market (France at $1.5bn, UK at $4bn), growing each year by 2-digit % in value. Using our tech-led model, we aim to take advantage of that growth and increase the size of the market via existing buyers/sellers, but also bring new people into the collecting world with easier and more transparent practices.

We raise funds to recruit mechanics, create a place to stock and refurbish, hire tech engineers, & launch into the UK market.
