The Rarity of Luxury Cars
70,000 may seem a high number, but considering that the average car model, such as the Honda Civic, sells on average around 200,000 units per year in the United States alone, it just goes to show that luxury cars are clearly not within everyone’s reach. This sounds like the average person will never be capable of owning a luxury car.
A good example is to take a look at one of the most recognized luxury cars in automotive history, the Jaguar E-Type. At the time of its manufacturing, between 1961 and 1974, it had been recognized as one of the most good looking, high performance, and competitively priced cars for the luxury car market. Its perfect combination of luxury elements have made it very successful, selling over 70,000 units during its run.
The good thing about luxury cars is that many, if not all of them, have designs and stylings that are classic and timeless. As such, people who are not critical about being at the spearhead of the latest in high-end cars may be able to purchase an older and used luxury car at a much lower price and still be satisfied with owning their dream luxury car.
A radical entry in the favourite luxury cars list? While most people tend to think of Hyundai as a manufacturer of bargain-basement economy cars, the truth is that Hyundai has been successfully marketing luxury cars in Asia, Europe, and Africa for more than a decade. The company’s newest version of the Equus was released in 2009 worldwide, and it is on my top five favourite luxury car list because it combines reliability with power, comfort and affordability. In short, this is a luxury car that the average consumer could actually hope to attain.

There are, however, people who acquire
cars, not just because they function well, but because they look
good, are from a prestigious brand, and have luxuries that few of the
average cars have. People who are wealthy, affluent, and powerful,
turn to luxury cars as a means to ride in luxury, while showing the
world their social, financial, and personal status.
If the Porsche Boxster isn’t quite what you’re after, it might be better to check into the Aston Martin Db9 Volante. Aston Martin got famous as James Bond’s car, but the company makes several different models and they all provide the driver with a lot of luxury and sophistication. If you want to have a high-status and high-quality car, it’s hard to go wrong with an Aston Martin, regardless of what model you decide to buy. The Db9 Volante, though, is one that not a lot of Aston Martin enthusiasts have given a lot of thought to. That’s unfortunate, because it’s a great car and can be acquired for a good price when compared to other luxury cars with the same options. Choose from a colour palette that offers beauty and style, and know that you’ll be getting a car with every available option. There are no ‘stripped down’ models where Aston Martin is concerned.
To begin my list of favourite luxury cars is the Escalade. Starting its life as a humble re-badge of the Tahoe/Yukon, the Cadillac Escalade has become so much more than just another luxury sports utility vehicle. The newest Escalades are amazingly comfortable, spacious, and even come with hybrid drive trains that make the most iconic bling vehicle in the world somewhat green.
No list of favourite luxury cars would be complete without at least mentioning the Lincoln Town Car. Starting at US$46,700, the modern Lincoln Town Car is indeed a throwback to a slightly earlier time, despite Lincoln’s best efforts to keep the car modern. This means that the modern Lincoln might not handle the slalom as quickly as a 7 series but there are precious few vehicles on the road that have a ride that is equally as supple and detached from road conditions as the Lincoln Town Car.
