This Bystander has always been a sucker for those little numerical nuggets that provide a telling economic snapshot. We found just such a one  in the interim financial report of Sparkle Roll, the Hong Kong-listed ultraluxe marketer that runs a tony car dealership in Beijing. It covers the six months ended 30th September 2010:

During this six month period, number of automobiles sold in terms of different brands was 123 Bentley, 43 Lamborghini and 95 Rolls-Royce compared to 70 Bentley, 14 Lamborghini and 11 Rolls-Royce respectively [in] corresponding period of 2009. Revenue of automobile sales amounted to HK$1,155 million ($149 million) compared to HK$380 million of same period last year.
