The most popular luxury car brands by search growth in 2012
Even faced with the prospect of a triple-dip recession it seems our love of the prestigious and the exotic shows no sign of abating. In fact, figures from Auto Trader suggest searches for luxury car brands were up 30% in 2012.
Total searches in 2012 reached 420 million, up from 315 million in the previous year. Of course, searches are one thing. Auto Trader hasn't revealed how many searches resulted in an actual sale.
Still, there's nothing like a little escapism, so let MSN take you through the luxury car brands that claimed the biggest search increases in 2012 compared with 2011.
