World Luxury Association Names Top 10 Car Brands

|

In a glitzy event held in Beijing, China, this month, the World Luxury Association (WLA), which is a non-profit research organization, named its Top 100 most valuable luxury brands of the year.

In the automotive field, the Top 10 premium car brands included some of the usual suspects such as Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Ferrari and Lamborghini along with some surprise entrants like Saab's former owner Spyker and Koenigsegg. Not that it matters any more, but Daimler's Maybach brand didn't make the cut.

The rest of the list includes brands from a variety of fields such as aircrafts, yachts, jewelry, watches, fashion and even liquor.

In addition to the Top 100, the World Luxury Association also released a report stating the China will become the world's largest consumer of luxury goods.

"With the phenomenon of RMB appreciation and depreciation of the Euro and the number of Chinese traveling to Europe in 2012, total consumption of luxury goods is expected to reach 59 billion Euros – a record high. The spending power of Chinese overseas will urge China to become the world's most powerful luxury consumer purchasing country," said the organization in its report.

Poor Chinese .... billions of Chinese confused and lost... still not being able to find a healthy and true meaning of happy life.

There's a "Wally" yacht? Really?

Looks really impressive. Shame about the name though. "I've got a boat built by a wally!" 
Not quite the image it's supposed to conjure up - more like something home made by Top Gear :)

Exactly!...they are too far fetched for the common man like me too...lolo!

It's the wild wild east. It will take one decade for the Chinese to put themselves into the debt it took Americans a century to do.

jack said... »January 19, 2012

I got 2 out them all

Can someone explain to me how Harley Davidson falls into the Innovative category? I don't think slapping your name on a Ford truck qualifies.

Fightex said... »January 19, 2012

This Org is from China?

Steve said... »January 19, 2012

Spyker the bankcrupt car made the top ten list? how can you feel luxurious when you're bankcrupt?

amac said... »January 19, 2012

Wherever it's from, I'm sure it's luxurious!

Fukin Rolls Over Royce in top 10. 
Hell its Hollowganda as usual. 
Harley Davidson as most innovative brand.. of when... the 1860s ?... 
Hell its Hollowganda as usual.

why do you say that? spykers have some of the best interiors, both quality And looks..

Since when has Montblanc ever been considered a real jewelry brand? They are known for pens. Maybe watches now. Some of these luxury brands are so exclusive, that they're irrelevant. Like, what doofus would actually buy a Vertu phone? Have they ever sold a single one? Never seen one on the street. And they're so heavy that the Visible Phone Bulge and Flopping (VPBF)  is ridiculous in lose pants. 

On a more positive note, Toiny beach is amazing. I stayed at a private villa, not the hotel. But I did have dinner and drinks there.  Not too shabby at all.

Growing rate of china is very vastly as compare
to many other nations. The china is the largest market for retailer and
many other. May be it will cross the all nation within next decade.

Of course the china will be a big
market within coming decade for his vast growing economics. So it attracts also
in car market.
