At an awards event, the luxury car group will be declared, featuring Rolls Royce, Bentley, Range Rover and Mercedes.
A guest – someone involved with the high end luxury car company – pulls a face when the S Class is mentioned. That ’s that’s superior, not high-end,” they say of a car whose base cost can not be as low the starting cost of some of the luxury cars their 805 – higher than as £192, own interests include.
Therefore I make an effort to define high-end. Could it be exclusivity? The fact that nobody has one ca be a reason an MG 6 would be a luxury car, although that’s part of it.
Okay, that’s facetious. Sorry. High-End additionally, presumably, means not cheap. But certainly that’s not enough if the view of our specialist would be to go by an AMG S Class would be a luxury car, and seemingly it’s’t.
Could it be craftsmanship? That there’s a private mark on it? Maybe. Lately I saw a Bentley steering wheel. The leather enveloping each rim is cross- . The craftspeople who do it make some indentations in the leather, so that they understand where to place their stitches before they begin. They work their way pricking it to do this. Each of them has their own fork – any old kitchen fork – which means the pitch between the stitching is exceptional to whoever handstitched your wheel.
That’s my steering wheel, made by that individual. By hand. It took time. It’s exceptional, to me. Compared to premium that, I am going to take, seems like the definition of extravagance.
So I’m becoming nearer to a definition, but that ca’t be enough, otherwise Mercedes would’t have believed it worthwhile to establish the Maybach brand (recently resurrected as a trim level). Simply setting in attempt and time would have already been enough.
For want of a much better word, snobbery so is there also? A blue oneupmanship to which many people fall victim. Could it be that there’s no option that is reasonably priced accessible? You can purchase for £250. also one a Seiko watch for £25,000 but You may have a Hublot watch but 000 for £25, not £250. Does that make one not the other and a high-end brand?
Likewise, it is possible to spend , but 000 on a new Mercedes and additionally £200, there’s no new Bentley for the latter cost. I’d more craftsmanship, but calls for dare say most folks have no notion which £25,000 watch or £200,000 automobile is the better constructed or which they’ll understand which feels like extravagance and which doesn’t.
What makes me more uneasy than anything is that it is known by me also.
