They Sold More Luxury Cars Than Ever Last Year, and Congrats on Your New Rolls-Royce

How's your 1996 Honda Accord? Good? Still hanging in? Bumper doing alright? Got those wiper blades switched out finally? Good, good. Oh, me? The wealthy global upper crust? Well, I absolutely cannot stop buying Rolls-Royces. You know how it is.

It might seem weird to you since you've been out of work since the crash of '08, but Rolls-Royce sold more cars (priced from a quarter million dollars up) last year than any year in its 108-year history of selling cars. And, strangely, so did Mercedes. And Land Rover. And Audi. Bentley sales were up 22% last year.

In conclusion, take a moment to reflect upon the vast diversity of this world in which we all live.
