Combining supreme comfort, deluxe styling and impressive performance is the key to success, so here are the top 4 luxury cars to look out for in 2013.
Bentley Continental GT
When talking luxury, it’s impossible to ignore the iconic Bentley Continental GT. Although the GT hasn’t undergone much of a change with exterior design, it’s the engine that is making headlines in 2013. After much tweaking and tuning, the GT is now the fastest production car Bentley has ever released.
Reaching blistering speeds of over 300km/h while maintaining an almost serene demeanour is something the Bentley simply excels at. Orders have already been taken for the 2013 GT, with the base pricing starting at over $180,000.
On a slightly more affordable note, Audi is releasing the all new S7 in 2013. Powered by a 4.0L V8 twin turbo engine, the S7 produces an impressive 414 hp. This performance is delivered in a smooth yet exhilarating power curve, blending the lines between luxuriousness and spirited sports feel. The quad tail pipes and 19” rims finish the S7’s sleek exterior design, and the interior comfort is typical of Audi’s high standards and attention to detail. The S7 is a pleasure to drive, and could be yours starting from just over $60,000.
