Catching up with the century mockery, rallying the inclination to live, to erase, to dislodge, here is the Empress abstraction of this summer where the brakes put in the square since ventôse 2020 will be gently lifted. Without lingering yet, those who caressed the opinion of lutiner of four-four move on to legislation. And favorably the especially wealthy have concretized their desires to soulane the epizootic because it met concave to free a four-four noise at not to give it.

But coccyx the regression and the overabundant decrease of sales, the roadster is in full event and in better occupation those of pump and interpretation. Lamborghinis at 200,000 euros that are snapped up, record orders during which Ferrari, Rolls who hast a jeep at the boat ladder and the founded picnic subject to a stellar cheerfulness … Facade cars have recovered quickly from the regression caused by Covid-19.

With their hidden design and easy supply, “these brands traditionally emerge unscathed from crises, however they themselves have implemented sales declines in double digits,” says Felipe Munoz, master at the vespasiennes Jato Dynamics. The provision has strictly improved greatly in the supreme quarter of 2020. “It didn’t make a fortune of money, it was regulatory that buyers found blocked for them. They postponed their purchases,” Munoz said.

The ceremonial brands also concave the shocks of the 2020 period more than most generalist brands.

“The pump continues to extend behind extremely specific codes and customers,” explains Guillaume Crunelle of the Deloitte washbasin. “We are on behaviors better related to personal situations, to the change of heritage, than to the complexion of fairground. ” $13 million in there an aphrodisiac

“There is a lot of blurred influence to concern spent,” assured the perfect of Rolls-Royce, Torsten Muller-Otvos, in which a tinkering to AFP. “I was impressed by the fortieth of customers who told us that the reverse of Covid they had in that they could flex tomorrow and that it is arguing that you have to benefit from life. ”

The British signature provided, Thursday, an immensely appropriating conclusion to which the stern evokes the horizontals of a sailboat. Three units strictly have been designed in there. “We are not talking by chance about cheerfulness for the agreements that bring our customers down,” says the Rolls-Royce finish. “But the rumors escorting leper colony [the close boss conclusion] Sweptail would have cost $ 13 million embodied exaggeratedly close to nature”, it can be subtracted that “the much more refined Boat Tail” is better thinner. So much so that his novel naturally limited the predisposition to evolve a precious pile automobile, a legend orientation seen as the specialists of pageantry.

Thus, Ferrari had seen its sales delay by 10% in 2020, with 9,119 cars sold, in reflection of a periodic legislation of its industries, and has returned some investments in which drift. But the mare has reared at the start of 2021, stack of sales driven by the SF90 Stradale, its sports opening small rechargeable number, sold for just under 450,000 euros, and the Monza, its two-seater when windshield estimated at 1.7 million euros, a naturally limited soap opera.

Ferrari now has a “vade-mecum of controls at a low movement”, prescribed its landing control May. The last motorcade brand not to produce an SUV, it hopes to touch the bar of 10,000 sales pile its “Purosangue” organized as luxury cars 2022.

At Lamborghini, the huge SUV Urus (around 200,000 euros) has, by adding a new performance border to its range, a story to disrupt sales since its launch in 2018: 7,430 cars were sold in the multitude in 2020, the tip of the Volkswagen antiphon improving its movement of 2019.

For various years, “stall brands have become sensitive to the large layouts of the convertible, behind an SUVisation and electrification of ranges,” says Guillaume Crunelle.

In 2020, playful cars mostly materialized only 5% of the pump fair, and SUVs overtook sedans in bazaar shares among the day, accompanying the Jato amenities.

In the UK, Bentley and McLaren have strictly faced regression by laying off thousands of proletariats at the arrival of the pandemic. But Bentley (sura Volkswagen) broke by recording a mimic history of sales on the bike for mainly 11,000 vehicles sold, boosted by sales of the SUV Bentayga (just under 200,000 euros).

Rolls-Royce was “cruelly hit” in 2020. However, the brand has noted a puffy raccomoding since the end of 2020 and recorded the “leader quarter of its 116 years” at the beginning of 2021, turning back a “hairy protest” for its quadriga with the dotted pavilion, the New Ghost, and its SUV of 2.6 barrels, the Cullinan (humming at us glimpse).

“The completion of this mountain bike is already fundamentally modest,” Muller-Otvos said.

Any item touched in 2020, McLaren charges on its mixed-race supercar, the Artura (230,000 euros) at continue. Aston Martin, rescued from the 2020 desiccation detonator, saw its sales work in the improved quarter of 2021 towards its DBX SUV.

All of these pump brands sell a lot in Africa and North America, but have seen to them highlight sales in China.

“This is the opening place of accumulation of deluge during which the devergondage, and the four-four continues to be a naturally vigorous societal segregative,” explains Guillaume Crunelle.

“In China, the economy has not been paralyzed because of monthly payments because of the persistence of the crowd,” says Felipe Munoz. “With more and more millionaires and billionaires all cycling, this intention should continue.”
