They do not feel the crisis: they buy luxury cars like sugar

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars published a press release saying that it recorded “all-time high annual sales” in 2022, delivering 6,021 cars, up 8 percent from 2021.

– announced the British manufacturer of luxury cars.

Rolls-Royce sales topped the American, Chinese and European markets. The automaker said orders have been good this year, noting that demand for its cars — many of which cost less than $400,000 — has fueled the expansion of the company’s Goodwood plant in the United States.

– announced CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös.

It’s not just a Rolls-Royce. Bentley and Lamborghini achieved record sales last year. Lamborghini delivered 9,233 cars in 2022, an increase of 10 percent compared to the previous year. Bentley delivered 15,174 cars, an increase of 4 percent compared to the record year 2021.

The rise in luxury car sales reflects that the ultra-high net-worth are doing well, even as the central bank’s tightening monetary policy and high inflation put pressure on ordinary consumers. This is also shown by the success of Ferrari, Which we wrote about in detail earlier.
