Luxury cars are more than price tags. They are special art pieces riding on four wheels. When you purchase one, you are buying an invention, a little piece of history. Luxury cars are mind-blowing inspirations that have been meticulously-manufactured to bring pride to their inventors.
Talk about soft luxury materials, a strong pedigree, seats that can rotate in every direction possible, incredible engineering, and perfect suspension that makes them glide like clouds over bumps; these machines speak flamboyance and swag.
These mind-blowing, four-wheel wonders speak the language of the one percent; the ones who are obsessed with precedence rather than practicality and efficiency.
Critics aside, luxury cars are truly amazing. We have counted down our favorite, most luxurious cars of all time in the list below. Whether you prefer legendary models or the “new kids on the block” we are happy to share with you our best choices.
1. Rolls-Royce Ghost
Rolls-Royce Ghost seems a little huge compared to most sedans, but if you want to give your chauffeur a break and drive yourself, you can do exactly that because it is also compact. Being a Rolls-Royce, the back seat is still everyone's favorite place to be.
The Rolls-Royce Ghost has a minimalist look because the focus is more on quality and comfort rather than flashy displays of extravagance. The Rolls-Royce company describes this latest masterpiece as a "post-opulent" design.
Features of Rolls Royce Ghost:
Call it the new Ghost because the squared-off lines of the old Ghost have been replaced with a more restrained and tight-knit design. With minimal cut lines, Rolls-Royce Ghost is neither aggressive nor ornate.
With its new design, the resized Rolls-Royce Ghost comes with fewer internal flat surfaces which serve to reduce noise reflection, creating a quiet and distraction-free environment.
The wood patterns, stitches, and dash layout have a minimalist touch that emphasizes quality. To give a more luxurious experience, the Rolls-Royce Ghost has been designed with open-pore leather and wood along with genuine metal.
Technology has been used to upgrade the experience rather than overpower it. For example, the lane departure warning will help you stay alert on the road, while separate temperature adjustment features for the upper body and feet have also been added.
We still expect class from a Roll-Royce which is why the 6.75-liter V-12 has been retained. Delivering 563 hp of 627lb-ft torque at 1600rpm, the Rolls-Royce Ghost is a force to reckon with.
With a height of 218 inches, the Rolls-Royce Ghost can only manage with four-wheel steering and that is exactly what has been installed. Again, this new Ghost runs on an all-wheel-drive, unlike its predecessors.
You will still enjoy the services of huge air springs, a forward-looking camera, and dampers to help you stay alert at all times.
2. Bentley Continental GT
After making us wait for a long time, Bentley finally unveiled their fabulous Continental GT. Bentley Continental GT spins slowly in the world of ultra luxury. Bentley has stood the test of time, ruling the world of amazing machines since the 50s. However, the Continental GT is undoubtedly an evolutionary leap.
At a glance, it looks simple but after a close inspection, you will realize that the improvements that have been made on this ride are fundamental.
Features of the Bentley Continental GT:
Continental GT comes with a 6-liter, W-12 placed further back to balance out the distribution of weight. The proportions have been improved further with a 5.3 shift in the front axle.
Weighing 4950 pounds, the Continental GT has amazing propelling capabilities. The 626-hp W-12 thrust and a 664 lb.-ft torque push you forward almost instantly so that you can fly off into the highways. The highest speed is 207 mph.
You can enjoy a massage whenever you want from the optional massaging seat as you listen to your favorite music from the 2200-watt stereo system.
If you want to keep track of your speed, then the traffic sign reading feature will be of assistance as you are driving.
The interior boasts of flawlessly stitched leather seats, doors, and headliners. The smooth metal coating on the knobs are so attractive you will find yourself touching them.
3. 2021 Mercedes-Maybach S580
Price; starts from $185,000.
Mercedes-Maybach S580 is the epitome of luxury from the Mercedes-Benz family. The Maybach badge is usually coated in luxury and the Mercedes-Maybach S600 is the most recent, supreme S-class model. This ride comes with a two-tone exterior that blends with its world-class interior.
You should never ask for more than a Mercedes-Maybach S580. You need nothing more than this excessive, superbly comfortable package. Every tech feature you can think of comes with this ride. Mercedes-Maybach S580 offers you more than you could possibly need.
Features of the 2021 Mercedes-Maybach S580:
You will get a huge OLED central display, massaging seats, 3D instrument cluster, and fascinating driver assistance on top of the usual S-class features.
The drivers-assist system is more adjustable in this model and will flash warnings from the 64-ambient lighting.
The Burmester stereo has been upgraded to include 30, 4D system speakers that boom with 1750 watts of power. To spoil you rotten, the manufacturers included headrest speakers that can be used for navigation individually.
In addition to the usual back-and-butt rubs, you can also enjoy the calf massage offered by the seats.
Improvements have been done on the seat climate of the Mercedes-Maybach S580; the rapid heating and the strong cooling system ensure that your back is always comfortable.
Your chauffeur will have the easiest time with the electric doors, especially the rear ones which he can open automatically.
If you want to float past traffic without making any noise, then 516lb-ft torque will offer you exactly that.
The 496 hp is truly mind-blowing because it is a 36 hp upgrade from the previous model.
It also boasts a 4-liter twin-turbo along with a 48-volt hybrid system that improves your chauffeur's efficiency significantly.
4. Ferrari California T
If you have been searching for a car that has lightning speed coupled with a touch of class, then look no further than the Ferrari California T. The Ferrari California T is exotic but still usable. It can go from 0-60 in a matter of seconds.
Features of the Ferrari California T:
Many Ferrari lovers are obsessed with California T’s retractable aluminum roof that can open and close in 10 seconds.
California T comes with a 7-speed transmission and F-1 control system.
It features a 2+ design concept with a HELE (High Emotion Low Emissions) system.
5. Rolls Royce Phantom
It doesn’t get better than the Rolls Royce Phantom. Standing at almost half a billion dollars, this is certainly the benchmark of ultra-luxury. Isn’t it a little weird that you can just slide into this luxury ride and not worry about closing the door behind you? With a simple button, you can just activate the "The Embrace" feature and the door will shut itself immediately. This is not a luxury car—it is a gliding mansion on four wheels.
Features of the Rolls Royce Phantom:
One of the most impressive features of the Rolls Royce Phantom is its silence. You can simply press a button and watch as the 6.75 twin-turbo V12 comes to life because you will not hear it.
At 19 feet, this machine is a beast, however, it can pivot nicely with the help of rear-wheel steering.
The huge, thin-rimmed steering wheel means less fatigue for the chauffeur and helps him steer the Phantom with light and precise movements.
With a horsepower of 563 and a torque of 664 lb-ft, the Phantom is unbeatable. Surprisingly, its 5600-lbs don’t stand in its way of moving from 0-60 in just 5 seconds.
The soft leather seats are so comfortable, they will suck you in as soon as you slide into the back seat of the car.
Forget the digital temperature readers and the boring touchscreens out there, the Phantom has metal knobs with red and blue stripes for easy temperature adjustments.
And to top it off, the Rolls Royce family cares about your appearance. You can have a last glance at your hair using the mirrors found on the roof pillars of the back seat.
A car of this stature should offer nothing but luxury, and that is exactly what Rolls Royce Phantom offers.
