25 Ridiculous Luxury Car Facts That Might Make You Wish You Were Rich

A luxury car is any vehicle that provides luxury (big surprise!), or basically any features that go beyond what is “necessary”. Although this definition is somewhat subjective, there is something of a consensus as to what constitutes a luxury car. The term luxury may be applied to any number of vehicle types, from vans and sedans to minibuses and sports cars. These days, however, there can be a bit of confusion surrounding premium brands vs luxury brands. Although premium brands tend to be high priced (and they can sometimes cost even more than the luxury equivalent), they are still often considered different. And while high price is certainly one of the factors that contributes to a car being “luxury”, it also boils down to the style, engineering, and even public opinion. Ever since cars hit the road, every era has had its own brands of luxury vehicles. These days, some brands focus almost exclusively on the luxury market (BMW and Mercedes) while other companies have subsidiaries in the luxury department (Lexus is a subsidiary of Toyota). So whether you are planning on buying one of these luxury cars or not, these are 25 Ridiculous Luxury Car facts That Might Make You Wish You Were Rich…or maybe not.
