Unfazed by the Eurozone debt crisis and the 'Fiscal Cliff' episode in the US, Lamborghini's sales in 2012 improved by 30% as compared to a year ago. In terms of absolute figure, the supercar brand moved 2,083 vehicles last year comprising of 922 units of the Aventador and 1,161 units of the Gallardo.

 

Asia took up the largest portion of the sales pie, accounting for 35% of global sales. The China market itself already account for 15%. This should not come as a surprise as Asia continues to be at the forefront of wealth creation, minting millionaires at a faster pace than any other region in the world.

Strong sales is only part of Lamborghini's success story. The company's turnover climbed 46% from EUR 322 million in 2011 to EUR 469 million in 2012.

 

With the global economic climate looking brighter, the bull run looks set to continue in 2013.

    BMW Alpina B5: Comfortable Cruiser

    Who says performance cars need to come with a sporty ride? Last week we tested the BMW Alpina B5 to see if Alpina's take on the performance saloon is a viable alternative to the BMW M5. So what sets this Alpina apart? Firstly, the interior has received a host of luxurious touches to set it apart from the regular 5-series: The digital dashboard in the B5 has its own Alpina-specific design and colour scheme, for example, while the handcrafted Alpina steering wheel is made of Lavalina leather (the same leather used in Rolls-Royce cars), and features blue/green stitching. But what truly sets this car apart from the rest of the performance saloon pack is what is underneath you: With a suspension designed to deliver comfort and refinement in spades, the Alpina is not just comfortable, but sublimely comfortable. Adding to the comfortable cruise is the fact that the B5 is joyously easy-going to drive, with the lightest of pressure on the accelerator sending the car wafting rapidly down the road. With the abundance of humps and rumble strips on our local roads, would Alpina's take on the performance saloon, with its effortless and classy character, be a better suit for your everyday commute? Read our full review here!

    Jakarta - Motoring advice....of sorts

    Some of you readers may have noticed that I have not been posting regularly as of late. This is basically because I have been traveling a fair bit recently and I was over on the island of Java for nearly a week's worth of R & R after attending a (non-motoring) business event in the Indonesian capital of Jakarta.   Now Jakarta is indeed a place which all of you should go to if given the chance. This metropolis is the largest city in the region and it is indeed an eye opener. It is a city where there is a love for statues and monuments of a grand scale and it is also a city that is also epic when it comes to motoring in and around it. It should be, as Jakarta has over twenty million people living in it.   When you have a city that has that many people and haphazard town planning (as the city has basically grown to enormous proportions and engulfed the surrounding areas where tiny roads cannot cope with the growth) traffic jams are the norm. When I first touched down I was ushered into a Toyota Kijang Innova

    The refreshed Gallardo gains a new sibling with a soft top

    The first images for the facelifted Gallardo Spyder are here, and it wears the similar trigonometry inspired face which does not fit well for the Spyder.   Though personally I feel that the extremely sharp styling does not work as well as it did with the coupe. Maybe it's the colour or the camera angles, but perhaps its looks better in the flesh.   Besides the folding soft top, the Spyder is essentially similar to its coupe sibling, which was revealed at the recently concluded Paris Motor Show. It wears a new set of two-tone 19-inch Apollo polished alloys and feature bigger air intakes ahead of the front rims. Like in the coupe the powertrain air outlet area is wider for improved thermodynamic efficiency.   What do you guys think? Am I too harsh on the looks or do you think it will grow on us?

    The magnetic sunroof - The latest in totally useless car accessories

    While browsing online I recently came across this contraption that supposedly adds a dash of style to the roof of any type of car (with a steel roof). I present to you the magnetic sunroof. This has to be at the top of the list of totally useless car accessories, just below the fake rear window wiper and the world famous 'Type-R' sticker.   It comes in roll up form like a carpet. Or like tinting film. You take it out, unfurl it on the roof of your sunroof-less car and wallah! You have an instant sunroof without cutting a hole through the roof of your car. Now why in heaven's sake would anyone want to put something totally useless on one's car? It's not as if this is like a Road Runner cartoon where the road runner can actually run through a black hole painted on by Willy E Coyote. As if you can put your head through or tilt it up to let air in. It is totally useless.   Sometimes people will try to do anything for a quick buck. Sometimes people will think that buying, installing or using such an accessory is actually good, useful, adds style, adds class, adds horsepower or makes the car look like a million dollars.   "A vehicle just looks better with a sunroof" says one of these ads. I have to say that a vehicle looks better with a REAL sunroof. If you readers know of anyone using one of these, please, for the sake of all that's holy tell them to remove the item immediately from the roofs of their cars. I beg of you.
