For instance, Rolls Royce Phantoms start at $340,000 and can approach up to $500,000. Rolls Royce sold 1000 cars in 2007.
Rolls Royce cheapest car cost $340,000 but they still managed to sell 1000 of them. The SLR and the Maybach are the only cars Benz makes even remotely in Rolls price range. Yet even with combined sales they don’t even put up a dismal 300 units. Bugatti sells the $1.3 million Veyron Super car has sold 220 units.
That is almost as many sales as Maybach and SLR put together. The sad part about that is that the Veyron cost 3 times more then either of those cars. You could buy the most expensive Maybach and the most expensive McLaren SLR and still have money left to buy a Murcielago LP640 for the price of a Veyron, yet Buggati still managed to sell nearly as many units as Mercedes’ most prestigious vehicles with a car that cost 3 times as much.
