The Luxury Lifestyle Continues to Thrive

The past two years has seen a revival of the luxury market, once seemingly on hold. The economic downturn has not necessarily affected the wealthy, yet they did alter spending habits for a few months to avoid appearing boastful. Lately, however, the luxury lifestyle is back, shameless and cutting edge!

Global sales of luxury goods hit an amazing $254 billion in 2011, and it seems Chinese women buy luxury cars the fastest, shelling out cash for Maserati’s and other top-of-the-line automobiles.

Rolls-Royce Launches Ghost Sedan Variant in India

Like other luxury carmakers, Rolls Royce has been busy rolling up its sleeves in efforts to rake in a slice of the lucrative market in India. Recently the brand has introduced a new Ghost sedan variant in India to meet the growing demand for its luxury sedans. The Ghost variant is not very different from its cousin, which you can drive anytime, just follow link to view our own Rolls Royce Ghost rental to see photos and specs for the vehicle.

India represents Asia’s 3rd largest luxury car market, and the special Rolls Royce Ghost variant will cost consumers $620,865 USD. This version is powered by a 6.6-liter petrol engine with an extended wheelbase. I assume the extra wheelbase is intended to absorb some of the shock from the Indian roadways…they look like they have been pelted by a meteor shower when there is asphalt available!
