There are different ways you can spend your money. You can get ostentatious houses, yachts, collect fine art, or even celebrate your time with a Bakersfield party bus ride. But for some, it’s all about luxury vehicles, either modern or vintage.
If you’re ready to part with some serious money for a high-end car, you might have power or speed in mind. Maybe you care more about aesthetics. Whatever turns you on, the cars on this list should catch your eye and lighten your wallet.
Before we dive into the list, here is a quick reminder to always obey all applicable traffic laws and wear your seatbelt. 47% of fatal accidents were not wearing seat belts, and it only takes a moment for you and your passengers to strap yourself in.
You’d better strap in if you get yourself a Rolls-Royce Cullinan. The Cullinan features:
- Some serious off-road capabilities
- 2.6-ton towing capacity
- BMW-derived 4-wheel drive
The Cullinan effortlessly bridges the gap between luxurious and rugged. With Rolls-Royce, you can expect exceptional mechanical refinement, smooth drivability, and unimpeachable comfort. The 2020 version costs about $330,000, though you can get an even more souped-up version from a couple of licensed dealerships.
The Bentley Mulsanne is a limousine-like, top-level four-door vehicle. It’s somewhat modest and discreet when you compare it to other Bentleys, but wait till you get inside. The interior features:
- Sumptuous leather
- Tanned, soft-touch upholstery
- 24 exquisite, customizable color choices
It’s like riding around in a 19th-century cigar bar. The Mulsanne features unbleached, hard-finished veneers, and they just came out with three exclusive new colors: Dark Fiddleback Eucalyptus, Dark Stained Madrona, and Liquid Amber.
This model will set you back about $310,800 for the base model. Expect 537 horsepower and 16 highway miles per gallon.
Mercedes Maybach S650
The average car enthusiast will immediately start drooling when you say the word “Maybach,” and with good reason. If there was ever a vehicle synonymous with luxury, this is it.
The S650 model is probably the standard-bearer for limo-style conveyance. An S-class vehicle, the S650 has active suspension and a ton of driver-assist technology. It packs 621 horsepower and has a twin-turbocharged V12.
Despite its impressive power, it is truly whisper-silent. You can get one for about $200,000, a veritable deal when comparing it to some of the other precision machines on this list.
What sets this car apart, though, is probably how much you can customize it. People love the Selenite Grey metallic finish, but the Emerald green metallic is also a bestseller.
Bentley Flying Spur
This is another option that car lovers know about, and it’s a standout in the four-door limo-style. The first version was the 2006S Continental Flying Spur, which was an instant hit. Since then, the company has further refined the basic design to make it sleeker and faster.
The third-generation Flying Spur borrows from the recent Continental GT coupe models. You get active anti-roll bars with it, as well as intuitive four-wheel steering.
The cabin is amazingly opulent. If you want to wow a client or seal a deal, it’s hard to envision a more impressive vehicle in which to take them for a spin.
This is the vehicle you want if you need balance, grip, and pinpoint precision steering. You also get a 6.0-liter twin-turbo W12. That will get you up to 626 horsepower, firing the car off like a rocket.
In less than four seconds, you’re going 62 miles per hour. The top speed is more than 200 mph. This bad boy will run you about $214,600.
The Rolls-Royce Phantom line would not be out of place in a James Bond movie. This is a status symbol that you can’t argue with, and it’s pure joy to drive. It’s so smooth and quiet and features run-flat tire technology.
The large-rim steering wheel lets you guide it over the road with incomparable responsiveness. It has a best in class V12 engine, 563 horsepower, and gets 20 highway miles per gallon, 12 in the city.
This is possibly the most sought-after car on the planet, especially the limited-edition versions. Even the base model will set you back about $455,000, so you’d better start saving now. Of course, maybe if you’ve been extra good this year, Santa will bring you one for Christmas.
You cannot go wrong with any of the options on this list if you want a statement-making luxury car. There’s no better way to proclaim that you’ve made it.
