Maybach 62 Landaulet

The Maybach 62 Landaulet, based on the Maybach 62S, revives the classic landaulet car body style, which was popular in the 1920s and 30s.[7][8] Powered by the 62S’s 612 horsepower (456 kW) biturbo V12, the Landaulet’s front seats are fully enclosed and separated from the rear passenger compartment by a power divider window. Back seat passengers get a sliding soft roof that lets them take in the sun from the comfort of the back seats. The chauffeur’s area is finished in black leather, while the rear is done in all white with piano black and gold-flecked black granite inserts. Also, the opacity of the glass partition separating the driver from the passengers can be electronically controlled. Maybach publicly unveiled the Landaulet at the Middle East International Auto Show around the end of November 2007 as a concept car. It has recently been confirmed that the car will go into limited production

2008 Lexus IS F

2008 Lexus IS F

Sticker Price: $56 000 for the basic version

Stats: 5 litter 416 hp V8 engine: 371 pound feet of torque at 5.200 rpm: 16/23 mpg

Pros: The rims by BBC which makes the rims for Formula 1 cars- 19 inches, aluminum.
The optional 14 speaker by Mark Levinson stereo has a great sound but as the folks from
Wired mention in their review “no musician makes sweeter noise than the engine”.

Cons: It takes premium gas so it could be quiet expensive to drive this beauty but if you
can afford to buy Lexus the gas prices are the last thing that worries you. The chrome stacked
quad exhausts are cosmetic.
