Luxury Cars

What I don't really understand is how people can spend so much money for a luxury car. I mean, there is - by law - a 400 percent luxury tax. I have seen here some very expensive cars, like maserati, mercedes benz, vw beatle. You must be crazy to pay four times more than in us or europe.

But I am also wondering about cars like many other people are driving, like the toyotas. I payed nearly 1300 Dollar for a motorbike, a 12 year old small korean car is about 1800 dollar. So how the hell are cambodians able to pay for a lexus or a camry? the earn normally 300 Dollar a month..Any suggestions?

yeah most of those cars probably belong to corrupt government officers. the rest then belong to rich businessmen. i think if they are honest business people, they deserve it.

What and how rich or powerful people can afford those luxury cars is common on sight, but in the name of poor and stupid people, I wish all those luxury cars owners should start reducing 1 hour a day not to start their car engines - not drive. By doing so, they will help survive our planet-reducing CO2 Emission, cos in the next 30 to 30 decades (2050-2100), the world will be burnt...how all of us, plants and animals live?...From the stupid countryman - Toma

hahahah!! Usually, Cambodian people didn't have only one work like Europe. They don't care about Luxury cars or whatever. I mean, If they are rich, they will buy luxury product to comfort their lifestyle. I paid around $3000 for a motor cuz my earning salary give me only this, but M happy since it is my lifestyle. $300 is just according to GDP but actually we earn more than that. For me I earn more than $5000 per month by doing 2 works. Don't be so curios about this matter.
