For those of you with money dripping from your every pore and the wish to draw attention to that phenomenon, the ostentatiously powerful G55 AMG may be for you. At first, Gs were known for their off-road heartiness and throwback design, but lately Mercedes has been packing the stodgy bodies with enough power to make them terrors on the tarmac. And who's going to take a $100K SUV through the woods anyway? Next year's model will continue the "Balco Nutritional Supplement" trend with a supercharged V8 making 469 horsepower and 506 lb./ft. of torque, good enough for a 5.6 second 0-60 romp. But will it be enough to snap the necks of onlookers in your direction? If not, you could always cover the exterior in Burberry plaid. There's always that option.
