For the second month in a row, Lexus is the best selling luxury brand in the USA, topping second place BMW by 5.595 units.

Currently, BMW leads with 211.005 sales over the first eight months of the year, with Mercedes close behind at 205.894.

With 198.831 sales in 2014, Lexus would have to make up at least 12.174 units on BMW — a tough challenge under any circumstances. Still, replicate August's success in September & October, and that year-end race is going to be pretty interesting to watch.

Long live the spindle grille!!!
