This is interesting. I wonder what the twenty-something does for living! (Probably tech-related!)
I fall in the 20-29 category (albeit on the very end of that spectrum) and I'm an engineer :)

We're in our mid 60's and my wife wanted this car! Tired of Audi's. I drive a SLK55 and I'm already thinking of the next crazy car, maybe if they update the GTS!

I'm 29, be 30 next month. Professional numismatist (I sell rare coins in the $5,000 to $1Million range each) to extremely affluent clients looking for alternative tangible investments. Got started when I was about 15 and got really successful doing it. Always believed that to be good at something, you have to absolutely love what you do.

It seems the Ghibli is having more success with the under 50 year-old market. Very interesting considering its price.

A younger buyer age then I would have guessed. I would have guessed the average age is 50, but this looks to be more like 40.

This result may be a little bit wrong, because I think that 50+ are not typically participating in a forum. I will be 62 in 2014 so I think that I'm rather in the minority in this forum.
Last spring when the Ghibli was presented in Shanghai I was able to see a marketing study which showed the target customer for the Ghibli as follows as I can remember:
In the USA male about 75% (in Europe nearly only male...), younger with 40-55 than the normal E-class driver( I think 45-65), self employed( owner of a company or lawyers/ other professionals with higher education levels), top managers incl. health sector. This for the USA. In Europe it's a little bit different. They are a little bit older than in the USA, I think 5 years and there are differences between Germany/UK and rest of Europe. In China the target age is the youngest (35-45).
In Europe sportiness is more important than in the USA. Exterior design is No1 reason to buy outside China. For them brand prestige is No1.

I think the younger generation (myself included) are being trusted more than ever before as leaders in industry. There is significant talent out there and I think we're finally breaking through the mold of yesterday when success was generally achieved through time and working one's way up rather slowly.

Anyhow, that's another thread entirely for another forum I'm sure.
