Ten High End Luxury Sedans

Ten High End Luxury Sedans

We're not all rich right now, but you never know when wealth can suddenly strike. It pays to be prepared -- especially when it comes to your transportation. What are you going to drive when inconceivable, tremendous wealth is thrust upon you? Are you still going to be driving that worn-out jalopy, or are you going to step up to the plate and find a sedan that transports you in style?
What to Drive When the Driver's Away

What to Drive When the Driver's Away

When you are insanely rich, you can choose to drive any vehicle. The most versatile, critical vehicle in any mega-zillionaire's arsenal is the top flight luxury sedan. Not the custom stretch limousine, not the carbon-fiber-bodied sports car, not the enormous SUV with wheels the size of hula hoops, but the genuine four-door sedan, suitable for an evening out or a spirited drive through wine country.
Audi A8L W12

Audi A8L W12

Starting at $120,100

Riding on a 5.5" longer wheelbase than the already spacious A8, the A8L packs luxurious features into both front and rear seat riding positions. Whether you're lounging in the back seat or punching the accelerator that controls the 450 hp 12-cylinder engine, you're in the catbird seat.

The back seat is a comfortable as the driver's seat -- and there's a refrigerator!
BMW 760Li

BMW 760Li

Starting at $124,100

For a company that advertises "The Ultimate Driving Machine," the 760Li is equally welcoming to both driver and passenger. Somehow BMW manages to add 5.4" to the wheelbase of the 760i sedan, yet only increase the turning radius by 9", making 760Li one big sedan that loves to romp through the twists, especially with that 438 hp V12 under the hood.

Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG

Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG

Starting at $195,825

The S-class starts out as a fantastic machine. Turn it over to the geniuses at AMG, and you get a fantasy turned into incredible reality. A hand-built 36-valve bi-turbo V-12 engine produces 604 hp and 738 lb-ft of torque. The S65 might need to be reclassified from sedan to rocket ship. With tons of tech and luxury, it will propel the captain of industry or lottery winner into another dimension of performance.

The deep sheepskin rugs in the Super 8 would look great in our entryway, never mind in our foot wells.
Cadillac STS-V

That big Cadillac family crest mounted in the center of a beefy wire mesh grille -- it's so American!

The longest car name we know of, it's still $4,170 per character!
Rolls-Royce Phantom

Rolls-Royce Phantom

Starting at $340,000
Perhaps no brand name connotes luxury as Rolls Royce. Far from often unreliable vehicles of the past, the Phantom is a world-class luxury sedan that combines style, luxury and searing sport in one elegant package. Did you ever imagine that you'd see a Rolls Royce go from 0-60 in 5.7 seconds, powered by a V12 that produces 453 hp? With 75% of its 531 lb-ft of torque available at just 1,000 rpm, the Phantom blisters the road in style.

Maserati Quattroporte

Maserati Quattroporte

Starting at $119,000
It's sexy, it's fast, it's Italian. The Maserati Quattroporte (literally "Four Doors") has that elusive quality that goes beyond your mega-millions: It is just plain cool. Sleek, fast (0-60 in 5.5 seconds) and beautiful from every angle, the Quattroporte is the performance luxury sedan for the driver who craves the exotic. The growl from that 4.2 liter V8 (400 hp/339 lb-ft of torque) could only be Italian, and it will melt your heart.

It has the finest exhaust note of any sedan on the marketplace, bar none.
Lincoln Town Car

Lincoln Town Car

Starting at $45,815
What's an ordinary Lincoln Town Car doing in this rarified company? I'm a mega-zillionaire, you're saying to your computer screen right now, I could buy a fleet of those for the price of one Bentley! Exactly! Now you've figured out the key to staying rich, not just getting rich. The Lincoln Town Car has been around pretty much unchanged forever, because of its enormous passenger capacity, dead reliability and stealth luxury appeal. Sometimes you have to watch out for the quiet ones.
