A radical entry in the favourite luxury cars list? While most people tend to think of Hyundai as a manufacturer of bargain-basement economy cars, the truth is that Hyundai has been successfully marketing luxury cars in Asia, Europe, and Africa for more than a decade. The company’s newest version of the Equus was released in 2009 worldwide, and it is on my top five favourite luxury car list because it combines reliability with power, comfort and affordability. In short, this is a luxury car that the average consumer could actually hope to attain.
Mercedes-Benz has been making some of the most gorgeous and luxurious automobiles on the road forever, and the vehicles with CLS550 badges on them are no exception. Of course, a Merc makes my list of favourite luxury cars! Swoopy lines define the style while excellent handling and a potent 382 horsepower 5L V8 give the CLS550 some serious power. Starting at US$74,000, the CLS550 is almost destined to become a collectible someday, as so many of its predecessors have. Not bad for a class that started production in time for the 2004 model year.
As it has been established, luxury cars come at a very great cost, between $25000 and $4000 Ultra-luxury cars don’t cost any lesser than $10000 So, the affordability factor makes it usually out of reach. Not only that, it needs high maintenance and repair cost. additionally, its re-sale market price is very low.
It is also not so fuel-efficient, which makes it non-environmental friendly, though efforts are being made to incorporate hybrid technology in luxury cars. Especially in the times of economic crisis, it is just not the right car to opt for. But, if someone has the passion for drive and enough finances to afford it then there isn’t a better car in the market.
New 2014 Cadillac Luxury Cars CTS ELR and Cadillac Elmiraj Frankfurt Motor Show.
It is interesting to note that modifiable was the only form of personal cars until 1910, when Cadillac introduced a very first closed car. Nonetheless, the convertible never lost its invocationl and attractiveness. Development in design and technology, to make it comfortable, secure and elegant, gradually evolved modern luxury convertible cars. These are designed to a very high degree of distinction with comfort, speed and beauty in mind. It looks as great on the inside as on the outside. Luxury cars are naturally two-door convertibles. They are distinguished on the performance end from GT and sports cars by their greater importance on comfort and usefulness over road on the luxury end, by consultation and style over performance.
This translates into increased costs,
which is why luxury car manufacturers have a specific socio-economic
target market. They cater specifically to this market,
differentiating them from the average car-buying public, in order to
add to the feel of being exclusive and luxurious, which is ultimately
one of the main reasons why buyers would purchase luxury cars.
Because there is a certain feel of pride, confidence, and
self-satisfaction when driving down the road in a car that only a
handful of people in the world are capable of purchasing.
No list of favourite luxury cars would be complete without at least mentioning the Lincoln Town Car. Starting at US$46,700, the modern Lincoln Town Car is indeed a throwback to a slightly earlier time, despite Lincoln’s best efforts to keep the car modern. This means that the modern Lincoln might not handle the slalom as quickly as a 7 series but there are precious few vehicles on the road that have a ride that is equally as supple and detached from road conditions as the Lincoln Town Car.
The antecedents of the latest luxury cars are the highly high-priced often custom bodied sporting luxury cars of the 1920s and the 1930s, made by Alfa Romeo, Mercedes-Benz and others. These very famous cars were favoured by film stars, play boys and gangsters for projecting bold and extravagant images. Even today, it suits only those who are the rich and the powerful.
