Study Shows Brands Like Lamborghini Will Benefit From Pent-Up Demand

Some car brands are expected to profit heavily from consumers planning to buy a new vehicle


  • As we leave the pandemic behind, consumers are getting ready to spend.

  • In the US, the car business has already reached pre-pandemic levels.

  • Lamborghini is at the top of the list of revenge spending trends while Rolls Royce seriously trails behind. 


We can all see and feel it, and it’s really good. Summer is right around the bend; just as pandemic restrictions are easing everywhere. Many of us have put off big purchases over the last 15 months or and we’re itching to spend big. The study authors refer to this desire to buy as “revenge spending” and some brands are looking at potentially huge gains.
