Don't worry, the rich are coming out of the recession just fine. The New York Times reports that luxury car sales took a huge spike in the first 11 months of 2013. Total luxury sales jumped 8.4 percent, and Maserati benefited most with a 55 percent surge. Rolls-Royce, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Porsche and Bentley also experienced double-digit boosts.
The most common buyers are entrepreneurs and executives for Fortune 500 companies. One entrepreneur from Cleveland spent nearly $500,000 on three Mercedes-Benzes last year: an SLS AMG, S63 AMG, and GL550. The man says he's confident in the economy and his businessâ€”which, you know, has to be nice.
