9. Mercedes-Benz SL550
Of course sometimes you don’t feel like traveling with a bunch of people. Maybe you want to go on a romantic get-away with your significant other or perhaps you can only stand to be in the presence of one other human being at a time. If either scenario is applicable to you then the folks at Mercedes have a vehicle with your name on it.

Thanks to its origami-style hard-top the SL is one part coupe, one part convertible and one hell of a luxury car, as is evidenced by its $107,000 base price. The “entry-level” SL550 features a 4.6-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine that puts out 429 ponies, though even more muscular engines are on the menu. Like the GL it features a seven-speed automatic transmission and tons of luxury accoutrements.
