These days, I continue to read that the rich are becoming richer. After all, haven’t the prices for high-end Manhattan real estate gone through the roof? Doesn’t the Swiss watch industry debut a new $100,000 watch every minute? Isn’t Gulfstream unable to keep up with the pace of G650 orders? Aren’t the Kardashians cornering the market on G-Wagens with each new reality show they produce?
So it was with great intrigue that I read how Bugatti was having trouble selling 40 Veyron convertibles. After all, haven’t seven-figure performance cars been selling out lately at almost any price? Haven’t the McLaren P1, Ferrari LaFerrari, Aston Martin One-77, and the Lamborghini Veneno sold out by the time we've seen them?
