4. Rolls-Royce Phantom

Modern cars don’t get any bigger or more ostentatious than the Rolls-Royce Phantom. This British behemoth is the very definition of unbridled opulence. Its imposing grille and massive dimensions frighten lesser vehicles right out its bloody way. Have you ever wanted to sit in a tree? Slip inside a Phantom and the abundance of wood trim will make you feel like a baby owl snuggled in the crotch of a hollowed-out oak. Ultra-soft leather, knee-deep carpeting and total serenity are the main attributes of this fine machine, but don’t expect it to be very fuel friendly. Powered by a 6.7-liter V12 this beast packs a 453-bhp wallop. Power is routed through an eight-speed automatic transmission, though don’t expect this advanced gearbox to make it thrifty; the Phantom’s combined fuel-economy score is just 14 mpg.

    No SRT Viper ..What a shame a manual gear box and powerful engine in a car that’s so awesome to cruse in it make you take the long way to your destination

  • Rickers

    Yea, your car is so awesome… they discontinued it.

    Actually they sold well. Also some cars liek the RSX were discontinued because they weren’t good or didn’t sell well but for other reasons. With the RSX the new Civic Si in 2006 had the same powerful engine so that was one reason. Also Acura wanted to get out of the sporty 4 banger racer boy car market.

    Damn shame most of these cars are unattainable for the masses… Why not include a couple reasonable cars in the mix? How about a Miata? I would take a Hardtop Miata over the Mercedes and keep the leftover 80K in my pocket!
