...and houses, and boats, and clothes, and jewelry, and generally living pretty large. Russia's new high society, who for the most part put themselves in the right place at the right time when the Iron Curtian fell, is dropping a huge chunk of change on vehicles worthy of their status.

"I never thought about owning such cars growing up in the Soviet Union. ... Now that we see how the rest of the world lives, we want the same standard of luxury too." Yes, Vlad, everybody drives a Lambo after they've parked their Camrys in the garage for the weekend.
