Cars.com Picks Top Cars Over $100,000

May 10, 2007

Cars.com recently compiled a list of the top 10 cars for buyers in the over $100,000 luxury segment. Reports show continued growth in the exotic vehicle category with new entries from Porsche and Aston Martin on the way, and BMW and Mercedes-Benz expected to produce new, rarified models. THE LIST: 1. Bentley Continental Flying Spur - The two-door Bentley Continental GT broke things open for the British coach builder, but it's the four-door Flying Spur that is the epitome of how much exotic luxury you can get for your money -- about $170,000. 2. Aston Martin V8 Vantage/Vantage Roadster - The V8 Vantage coupe and convertible are sultry, British and fast. For $110,000, the coupe is a major head-turner that will stand out in a crowd of Porsches and even Ferraris. The Aston has subtle elegance with a ton of performance squeezed out of its V-8 engine. 3. Audi R8 - Its modern styling and impressive performance, about on par with the Porsche 911 Turbo, make a value statement at $109,000. The huge grille, mid-engine layout and sporty cockpit scream business, while the bold stripe on the side shouts eccentricity.4. Porsche 911 Turbo - It may look like Porsches of the past, but the new 911 turbo is the highest attainment of Porsche-ness ever built. At $122,000 it might seem like a major investment, but a 911 Turbo never goes out of style. 5. Bentley Continental GTC - The GTC's motorized canvas roof might seem like something from your grandpa's old Buick, but it's the look with the top down that seals the deal. At $189,990, you just can't have too many Bentleys in your stable.6. Ferrari F430 - Ferrari's "entry-level" F430, starting at $168,005, may be the easiest Ferrari ever to drive like a pro. 7. Mercedes-Benz S600 - For $139,900, it has a powerful V-12 engine and a very upscale cabin, complete with mood lighting.8. BMW M6 Convertible - It hits 60 mph in just 4.6 seconds and at $104,900, the V-10-powered BMW, is probably the least attractive car on the list, but we've run into more than one luxury owner who covets the 6 Series above all else.9. Lamborghini Gallardo - At $175,000 for the hardtop and $195,000 for the roadster, the Gallardo is a native Italian, but are most often seen in high-profile areas like South Beach and Hollywood. The cabin is sparse, the ride is harsh and the exhaust is more than boastful. 10. Maserati Quattroporte - One of the first $100,000 cars to really sell in significant quantities, it’s still one of the most inexpensive Italian exotic cars you can buy, at $110,600, and this year it sports a traditional automatic transmission.
