NOTICED a few extra supercars on the road this year?
Seems we Aussies are buying them in record numbers if 2015's sales figures are any indication, with Ferrari seeing an improvement of 48% over 2014, and Italian rival Lamborghini up a staggering 211%.
Prancing horse badged lovelies - the cheapest on sale the $409,888 California T - galloped out of showrooms in more numbers than ever before, with 167 finding new owners. Lamborghini meanwhile - its entry the Huracan LP 580-2 at $378,900 - secured 84 sales: a mighty leap over the 27 sold in 2014.
Brit rival to the thoroughbred Italians, McLaren, also had a good 2015. Its range, starting with the $325,000 540C, saw 36 Aussie sales, up from the 26 of 2014.
Maserati can also rejoice with 519 sales (the Ghibli its cheapest at $139,900) seeing a leap of 29% over 2014, while Aston Martin (starting at $219,895 for the V8 Vantage GT) shifted 130 cars in 2015, up 22% on the previous year.
Porsche also had a brilliant year with overall sales up 45% in 2015. Not thanks to the 911 however, which saw only a modest increase of 3% over 2014 with 377 sales.
You may still think of Porsche as a sports car company, but Boxster and Cayman sales dropped in 2015, while the SUV Macan and Cayenne surged ahead. The Macan (from $93,100) is the brand's runaway best seller with more than 2000 sales in 2015: over five times the number of 911s sold.
And while your jealously levels are high, there were also 42 Audi R8s bought by Australians in 2015, 61 BMW i8s, 58 Mercedes-AMG GTs, 68 Nissan GT-Rs and 173 Jaguar F-Types. Shoulda kept those shares in Google...
