About Drift Capital

An asset management firm that invests in the world’s rarest and most valuable cars.

We provide investors with curated exposure to a diversified portfolio of illustrious horsepower.

Our Mission

For over 40 years, the value of noteworthy collector cars has appreciated significantly—demonstrating robust, non-correlated returns for those fortunate enough to have owned them. Champions of motorsport and works of art, these desirable automobiles have preserved capital in market downturns, while amplifying returns in economic expansions.

Determining which cars to invest in, and at what price, requires years of esoteric knowledge. Financial and logistical barriers associated with managing a diversified fleet further prohibit investors from accessing these automobiles' portfolio-enhancing characteristics.

Recognizing there was no mechanism to gain economic exposure to these assets, Drift Capital, L.L.C. (“Drift”) was built to unlock the asset class and maximize its potential for investors.

Drift achieves this objective through the launch of Drift Capital Fund I, L.P. (the “Fund”), expertly acquiring and fractionalizing the ownership of a superlative fleet of eclectic automobiles.

Drift will source, acquire, insure, store, and preserve automobiles to a level of quality that sets a new standard of industry excellence.

Sourcing Automobiles

With relationships across all facets of the automotive industry, Drift acquires assets from a variety of venues— engaging marque-specific expertise to provide assurance of authenticity.

Purchase and Storage

Upon acquisition, the automobiles are fully insured and transported to our museum-grade storage facilities, where the assets are secured and maintained by dedicated technicians.

Returning Capital to Investors

As the portfolio's assets appreciate, the Fund liquidates its holdings to realize gains. Proceeds from each sale flow back to investors, with target returns in the mid- to high-teens.

Strategic Partnerships:

Drift Capital partners with leading firms in the automotive and financial industries. We pride ourselves on aligning interests with distinguished collectors, dealers, brokers, auction houses, and technology platforms.
