One of the silver linings of the recession is the sudden availability of all things exclusive.Like country club memberships. Or top-restaurant reservations. Or private jets. After years of short supply and mass demand from rising riches, super-luxury items are now yours for the taking (or at least, for a 20% discount). Now comes news that sales are slacking for Lamborghini – the ultimate new-money driving machine. Because of a 30% drop in sales, the wait times for Lambos have shrunk to a mere six months, down from the year-long waits of a year ago, according to the company’s chief executive, Stephan Winkelmann.
