Though economic times are, like everything else, relative. Even as key players in the auto industry struggle to overcome pandemic-related challenges, others that specialize in more—ahem—high-end offerings are cruising. Lamborghini was a perfect example of that after announcing record profits in 2020, and Rolls-Royce just had its best first-quarter ever.

Year-over-year improvement was huge for Rolls, notching a 62 percent increase during the first three months this time around, in 2021. From New Year's Day to March 31, it sold 1,380 models with growth "in all markets," particularly China, North America, and Asia Pacific.
