Imagine the precisely shaven faces and immaculate lab coats of the AMG engineers in Affalterbach. Nobody builds a more surgically precise car than AMG, but this curvy beast sporting a 4.0 liter V8 Biturbo looks different, dare I say… Passionate? I’ll tell you more when I chat with Nico Rosberg or when Mercedes lets me drive one. (holds breath)
Bentley Mulsanne Speed
Estimated Price: Bentley won’t tell me. (probably north of $400,000)
In my opinion the Ford Edge has always stood out as one of the best looking SUVs in its segment. This new generation dumps the swooshy and rounded look for sharper and better defined lines. All four trims of the Ford Edge look good, but the Titanium and Sport definitely add some character. Fords excellent Ecoboost engine and AWD make the new Edge an SUV I’d love to drive around town.
Mercedes Benz S-Class Coupe
Estimated Price: $130,000
This car is good at ONE thing only. To “rocket you down the highway like a bat out of hell-while surrounded in a cocoon of luxury and safety-and making you look younger, skinnier and sexier than you actually are”. Phew.. That’s a crucial one thing to be good at. This is a ridiculously seductive car. Go buy one.
Alfa Romeo 4C Coupe or Spider
Estimated Price: $57,000 (coupe)
It sits two, weighs 2,300 pounds and its turbocharged 4 cylinder engine produces 237hp. It’s assembled in Ferrari’s backyard and its engineered with one purpose in mind… Handling. It’ll succeed at hauling you and your hopefully sexy Italian passenger very quickly around a track.
We are currently awaiting to test one, so hopefully I can share more soon!
