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.
