The McLaren 570S is a sports car that not only looks the part but also delivers power and speed. With its twin turbo 3.8 liter V8 engine, the 570S can achieve 562bhp. The revving is also powerful and an acceleration of 0-60 mph in only 3.1 seconds. Sleek upward facing curves and doors make it look luxurious. This is due to launch control and a seven-speed dual clutch gear box. McLaren have used their prowess on the F1 track to produce this high-performance machine. The handling is great with hydraulic steering which has great feedback. The chassis is made of stiff fiberglass makes it cope well with damping, suspension, and braking. At $180,000 has a top speed of 204 mph.
A stunning new machine from the Mercedes sports car line, the AMG-GT has borrowed its looks from the SLS AMG although it is smaller and cheaper. The Mercedes AMG-GT has a 4.0-liter V8 engine with twin turbo which gives it its power. The GT delivers 456bhp while the GT S reaches 503bhp. With an acceleration of 3.9 seconds from 0-60mph, the AMG Gt is only rivaled by the new GT C expected to debut in showrooms in fall 2017. The Mercedes AMG-GT and GT S range from $112,000 to $132000.
Audi R8 Coupe
When it comes to looks, the Audi R8 is bound to score the first position. This sleek beauty is enjoyable to drive and looks as good as it runs. It has a 5.2-liter V10 engine capable of producing 540hp while the V10 Plus can reach 610hp. Both versions are AWD (all-wheel drive) and have a seven-speed automatic gear box. With perks such as a 4G LTE connection, Wi-Fi hotspot, and a 12.3-inch display, the Audi R8 adds a touch of class and luxury. Even the interior is plush and luxurious at its price of $162,900. The Spyder version is expected to be released in 2017.
Porsche 718 Cayman
Although it borrows from its predecessor Cayman S, the 718 Cayman lacks the soundtrack from the six-cylinder engine which made the sports car exciting to drive. Less noisy, the 718 Cayman has a 4-cylinder turbocharged engine with a 2.0-liter displacement which produces an amazing 300hp. The Cayman S only produced 350hp from its 2.5-liter engine. Sharp acceleration puts it above its predecessors with 0-60 mph being achieved in 4.5 seconds. The gearbox is a dual-clutch automatic with the option to run a six-speed manual. It has also undercut the 718 Boxster on price to become the cheapest Porsche in the Cayman series at approximately $67,700.
Lincoln have outdone themselves on the 2017 Lincoln Continental with perks such as tech and styling. The shape, bumper, and grille pose a modern design and shout luxury. The Lincoln Continental has a V-6 engine with options for a 305hp and 335hp standard front-wheel drive versions. The all-wheel drive is optional with the best option being a 400hp engine on the AWD option. Luxury features include heated seats, chrome trim on the dashboard and a 10-speaker entertainment system. The seats can be adjusted in ten different positions. Acceleration is at 5.0 seconds from 0-60mph with a top speed of 147 mph. The suspension, however, is not very good for a luxury car. Starting price is $45,645 before tax and sales for a Lincoln Continental with no options.
Rolls Royce Dawn
It goes without saying that a Rolls Royce needs to be on this list and the Rolls Royce Dawn fits the bill. It is the latest Rolls Royce and was produced in 2016 with plans for a 2017 model being released. Rolls Royce went all out on design producing the sleekest Rolls Royce yet with exquisite curves. The company even crowned it the “sexiest Rolls Royce” ever produced. The engine is a 6.6-liter V-12 twin turbo beast that produces 563hp. Its acceleration is 4.3 seconds from 0-60mph with a top speed of 155mph. The interior is exquisite, seats four and is fitted with leather and real wood trim! The starting price for a Rolls Royce Dawn with no options is $337,750. If that doesn’t scream luxury, I don’t know what does.
Another company synonymous with luxury cars, Cadillac gets its foot in the door with the CT6. In a bid to compete with European rivals, Cadillac have added some exciting features to the Cadillac CT6. High-tech features on this model coupled with stylish exterior ups the ante. Under the hood, it packs a 2.0-liter four turbo engine making 265hp for an eight-speed automatic gearbox.
