When we think about high-end cars, companies like Ferrari, Bugatti, Lamborghini etc stand out. These companies have established themselves in such a way that they can be trusted to build the fastest and prettiest cars satisfying the demands of the affluent clients. A new model is released almost every month with brilliant new features that seems to triumph over the previous models in both rarity and price. The making of these exclusive models is so quick that it’s flabbergasting, the high productivity of these companies less so.
