Top 10 Amazing Luxury Cars


There’s a difference between driving in style and driving in total luxury. Welcome to WatchMojo.com, and today we’ll be counting down our picks for the Top 10 Amazing Luxury Cars.

For this list, we’re looking at not only the most powerful rides out there, but also the ones that just ooze lavishness from their look, to their brand, right down to what type of carpet lines the interior. These cars have a legacy to uphold, and they don’t plan on letting anyone down.

#10: Ferrari FF


The logo for Ferrari is universally recognizable around the world: the prancing black horse on a yellow backdrop is the definition of luxury. With the FF model, the Italian car manufacturer hit the perfect balance of sports car and luxury automobile, featuring a large, extravagant interior while also packing a walloping 6.3-litre V12 engine and boasting 651 horses. If that’s not enough, well, just look at it. It’s beautiful! And it’ll only set you back a paltry 300K. Then again, if you’re dropping that kind of cash, why not go for the LaFerrari Model at only 1.7 million? We know you want to!


#9: Maserati Quattroporte GTS


Reaching top speeds of just under 200 miles-per-hour, the “Quattroporte” is not just another pretty face: it holds a distinctive historic lineage of unceasing quality as well. This “Italian Stallion” will set you back a pretty penny for all the bells and whistles, but what’s money when you’re cruising down the streets in one of the most elite cars in existence? Packing 530 horsepower and a 4-litre, twin-turbo V8 engine, this car is meant to be driven, and hard. It’ll go from 0-60 in just 4.5 seconds. Now that’s fast!


#8: Aston Martin Rapide S


If it’s good enough for James Bond, it’s good enough for us! We love Aston Martin’s style, and this recent example of luxury in the ever-glamorous Aston Martin series has a top speed of over 200 miles per hour propelled by its 5.9-litre V12 engine, making it one of the fastest luxury sedans ever made. The bad news? It starts at over 200 thousand dollars! Did it suddenly get hot in here?? It’s not a small car either, being a four-door sedan that’s known for impressive looks that complement its amazing power. We think it’s worth every penny.


#7: Lexus LS 600h


This Japanese-made entry is a bit bigger than its little brother, the LS 460, but that extra space means more luxury, of course. Who cares about fuel efficiency when you’re driving a modern miracle of automotive engineering? The LS 600h teams a gasoline V8 engine with electric motors that make it comparable to a V12, and all that extra power is needed to move the larger frame that houses such luxuries as an in-car refrigerator and seats equipped with massage settings.


#6: BMW Alpina B6 Gran Coupé


What’s the only thing better than a brand new “bimmer?” One that’s been upgraded by performance specialist Alpina, of course! This ride is seriously powerful, housing 600 horses along with a 4.4-litre V8 engine that will get you from 0-60 in less than four seconds as you cruise along at over 150 miles per hour. But it’s not just a beast on the streets; it’s the definition of quality and luxury as well, as this powerhouse is also packed with a lavishly trimmed, high-tech interior. It’s actually quite affordable compared to other entries on this list too, starting at 120 grand.


#5: Jaguar XJ


This full-sized sedan by the British car giant Jaguar is perhaps the most “royal” car on the list, as it serves as one of the official vehicles of the Royal Family in the UK. Its 5-litre, supercharged V8 engine is no slouch either, reaching top speeds of over 150 miles per hour and going from 0-60 in under four seconds. Also, like the BMW, it’s a bit more affordable compared to the Aston Martins and Maserati’s of the world as well, starting between 75 thousand and 93 thousand dollars, depending on the model.


#4: Mercedes-Maybach S 650


What would a list of the most luxurious cars in the world be without an entry from Mercedes-Benz? But, why stop there? Add a performance update from Maybach and now we’re really playing with fire! The Mercedes-Maybach S 650 is a stretched sedan that offers all the comforts in the world, but also has the power of a race car, housing a 6-litre, 621 horsepower, twin-turbo V12 engine and a seven-speed automatic transmission with overdrive. With this car you’re sure to arrive in style … and way ahead of anyone else!


#3: Bentley Mulsanne


As a step up from two other popular Bentley models – the Continental and the Flying Spur – the Mulsanne is hand-delivered straight from the car gods, and has all its features dialled up to eleven; and with a hefty price tag of over 300 grand, it damn well better be! This British legend comes equipped with 6.75-litre, 530 horsepower, twin-turbo V8 engine and reaches top speeds over 180 miles per hour. It looks and feels like a VIP lounge on wheels, and that’s why the people who purchase this car are sure to be the type that love to be driven around.


#2: Porsche Panamera Turbo S


Based on the older 911 model, the Panamera is Porsche’s sole entry into the sedan class, so we’d forgive you for mistaking the Turbo S for a classic sports car with its 550 screaming horses and twin-turbo V8 engine, hitting top speeds of 190 miles per hour. But it also has a softer side, including an extended backseat and all the interior bells and whistles of other luxury cars listed here. For a Porsche, it’s quite reasonably priced, coming in at around 150K. If you’re looking for something just a tad sleeker, however, there’s nothing finer than Porsche’s 918 Spyder – including all its 887 horses. For 845 thousand dollars, it’s engineered to be the literal example of German-made perfection!


Before we unveil our top pick, here are a few honorable mentions:

Range Rover Sport


Tesla Model S


Bentley Flying Spur


#1: Rolls-Royce Ghost


The Ghost is about as luxurious as it gets, yet it keeps things incredibly simple while still demanding the respect of carmakers everywhere. It’s largely hand-built – with each car allegedly taking 800 man-hours – and every detail is bathed in luxury right down to its lambswool floor mats. It’s the pinnacle of comfort, but still boasts a 6.6-litre, twin-turbocharged V12 engine that will leave other luxury cars in its dust. But if you’re looking for something a little more British-looking, perhaps the Phantom would be more up your alley? It also screams class and refinement. Let’s be honest, though: either choice is the highest peak of luxury automobiles, as there’s nothing finer than a Rolls-Royce.
