USA: Super-luxury market still strong, survey claims
Despite an unsteady economy, America's passion for driving "luxury" and "super luxury" cars remains strong, according to an analysis by R. L. Polk & Co. Registrations of "super luxury" cars (vehicles with retail prices of $US100,000 or higher) total 6,187 for the first 10 months of 2002. This puts the "super luxury" segment on track toward its second best sales period ever, following record registrations of 9,516 vehicles in 2001. The number of "super luxury" cars registered to the end of October 2002 is nearly equal to the combined volume of the 1999 and 2000 calendar years.
