The new year is coming and possibly a new car purchase? No matter what your taste is, with a pretty travel companion by your side, it will drive all the better. What do you feel like? Do you prefer a classic limousine or an exotic supercar?
We have thought about which luxury car models suit you best and want to give you some inspiration with the following lines. Which luxury car brand are you in the mood for? There are so many luxury cars on the market now, with a range of prices, that it might be difficult to choose one. Whether it's a sporty little convertible, a large SUV, a station wagon or an electric car? You may find a few suggestions below. Whether you're a businessman who likes to cruise around in supreme comfort, a millionaire who wants to be chauffeured, or you just want to travel in style, luxury cars are an essential part of life. Plenty of legroom and a lush interior make the miles melt away with ease.
These days, there are plenty of players in the luxury car segment. The growth of large SUVs has led to an increase in high-end options that offer both practicality, off-road capability and an impressive interior in one package. Space in particular offers plenty of opportunities to spend time with the busty call girl, even when you're on-the-road. Traditionally, luxury cars were the realm of super sedans, often referred to as luxury barges because of their lavish interiors. The old hands are still around, and better than ever. Mercedes, BMW and Audi, but in recent years new manufacturers like Lexus, Volvo and even Hyundai have had a hand in the game.
From Bugatti to Maserati with the exclusive call girl in Berlin
Should you want to test your new vehicle extensively, there are plenty of opportunities for a drive on the highway on the way to Berlin. In which sports car do you want to show yourself?
How about a Maserati? In Italian, "Quattroporte" means "four doors," but you don't have to know the language to appreciate the dramatic flair of this Maserati. Two twin-turbo engines are offered - a 3.0-liter V6 with 424 horsepower and a 3.8-liter V8 with 523 horsepower. An eight-speed automatic and rear-wheel drive are standard; all-wheel drive is offered with the V-6. The luxurious, leather-lined interior features an 8.4-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto; adaptive cruise control and automatic emergency braking are optional. While driving, don't be distracted by the bombastic beauty of your out call girl in Berlin.
Would you have expected a Lexus in the very next spot? Neither did we, but don't worry, the classics are yet to follow. You might assume that the following vehicle doesn't fall into the luxury car category. Let us surprise you. Lexus is Toyota's upscale brand in every sense of the word. They may have below average sales volume when it comes to luxury cars, but they still make a compelling offering. Powered by a 3.5-liter gasoline engine combined with a hybrid system, total output is 359 horsepower and 350 Nm of torque. That's enough thrust to propel this huge sedan to 62 mph in just 5.1 seconds. As standard, you get leather upholstery throughout, 20-way adjustable driver and passenger seats that are heated and ventilated. Standard equipment also includes the Lexus Premium Navigation System, which measures an impressive 12.3 inches on the dash. There's also a whole host of safety technologies: radar cruise control, pre-collision, lane departure warning, traffic sign assist, and automatic high beams. Safe and classy on the road, what more could you want?
Ready for your next SUV, a typical British Luxury Car? An old favorite in the luxury car world is the Range Rover. The fourth generation Range Rover has come a long way since its introduction in 1970. Surprisingly, Land Rover also offers the option of a long wheelbase Range Rover. Fortunately, unlike the Jaguar XJ, there is a wide choice of engines. Two diesels, either a 3.0-liter with 275 horsepower that can do the 0 to 100 spurt in 7.4 seconds, or the larger 4.4-liter with 339 horsepower and a 0 to 100 time of 6.8 seconds. Then there are three gasoline engines, a 3.0-liter with 400 hp and a 0-60 time of 5.9 seconds, a 5.0-liter V8 with 525 hp that hits the 60 mark in 5.1 seconds. And a 5.0-liter V8 with 565 hp that costs from 160,300 euros and still gets to 60 in the same time as the V8 with less power. Land Rover has also decided to add a plug-in hybrid model to the Range Rover to reduce emissions. This still manages the 0 to 100 sprint in 6.4 seconds and is powered by a 2.0-liter gasoline engine that produces a total of 404 horsepower.
The German classics with a classy call girl
Which model is the best to start with here? German manufacturers once again prove their skills in terms of technical finesse and fantastic design. But first a classic:
Now the S-Class has always been the king of super sedans, a luxury car like no other. There was a time when Mercedes sold two S-Classes for every BMW 7 Series that rolled off the assembly line. Much like the humble Volkswagen Golf, the S-Class is the car of choice if you want a big luxury car. The S-Class starts at 90,000 euros and is available in a variety of trim levels: "Grand Edition," S 560 e L Plug-in Hybrid, "S63 L" or "S63 L Premium." There are two 3.0-liter V6 diesels, one producing 286 hp, the other 340 hp. You also have four gasoline engines to choose from, a 3.0-liter V6 with 367 hp or 435 hp. Then there are the AMG models, a 4.0-liter V8 that produces 612 hp, or the 6.0-liter V12 that produces 630 hp and costs a whopping 200,000 euros. Hybrid fans take note: There is also a single hybrid option, the S560e L. This model is a 3.0-liter V6 gasoline engine equipped with an electric motor and battery pack, producing a total of 489 hp. The handling is excellently balanced both in the city and in the countryside, and sitting in traffic couldn't be better with the interior luxury on offer. Up front, there's a 12.3-inch infotainment screen with the Mercedes Comand Online system as standard.
Feel more like a BMW? If you can look past the huge grille, the latest generation BMW 7 Series is also noteworthy. Always behind Mercedes' all-conquering S-Class, the 7 Series may have finally surpassed it when it comes to building the ultimate luxury car. You can opt for all-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive only. For the latter, there's either the 730d diesel with 265 hp that can sprint from 0 to 62 in 6.1 seconds, or the 740i with 340 hp and a 0-62 time of 5.5 seconds. For all-wheel drive, there's the 750i xDrive gasoline engine with a massive 530 hp and a super-sporty 0-62 time of 4 seconds, or the more frugal 265-hp diesel with a much more leisurely 0-100 sprint of 5.8 seconds. Even the 7 Series key has a built-in LCD touchscreen that lets you control various actions of the BMW as you drive away from it. This will definitely make the best possible impression on your next escort date in Munich.
Rather than new friends, go for an Audi with a premium escort model: the A8 remains the pinnacle of luxury cars when it comes to the four rings. This latest iteration builds on the driving characteristics of its predecessor by adding even more advanced chassis control, powertrain and engineering features. It also has some of the most advanced self-driving capabilities in the world built in, so watch out Tesla. From the start, the A8 was built on a 48-volt electrical system. This allows equipment that is normally powered by the engine, such as water pumps, air conditioning, oil pumps and heating, to be powered by the battery alone. This mild-hybrid system makes it possible to save fuel while keeping everything at a safe, low voltage. One of the tricks of the A8's trade is its electronic chassis management system, which can change the vehicle's front height by up to 85 mm in just half a second. It also eliminates body roll in corners by adjusting it on the fly.
How about an e-alternative from Audi? Audi's first attempt at building a "premium electric car" comes in the form of the €66,200 e-tron. The brand touts it as "the most advanced Audi ever," and at a price that rivals that of an A8. One of the most noticeable things about the Audi e-tron is the lack of exterior mirrors. They've been replaced by "virtual exterior mirrors." A series of cameras that show you what's behind you in real time. These are optional and only standard on the "Launch Edition. Visually, the e-tron makes like a 'faster' Q7. Audi isn't one to break the mold when it comes to the E's looks. Still, a contemporary chic car for your time with the high class travel companion.
Look forward to a discreet escort date in Frankfurt with your 2020 supercar
Do you want to move towards your high class escort date within three seconds at 100 kilometers per hour? Then they need one of the best supercars 2020. There is no getting around McLaren in this regard. The McLaren 720S has succeeded where its two predecessors (the 650S and MP4-12C) fell short. It has simply topped them. There are few more direct or effective ways for cars in this stratum of the performance car market to demonstrate their superiority than to accelerate faster, lap quicker, and brake harder than any rival. The 720S accomplishes all three of those things. In many of the performance comparisons road testers are accustomed to measuring, this 710-horsepower blockbuster is even closer to a contemporary hypercar than one of its mid-engine opponents. Yet it's unusually responsive and easy to drive, it's an ergonomic tour de force, and it flatters a boisterous racetrack style more than any of its predecessors. The deluxe call girl will enjoy its trip around the racetrack. McLaren will launch a lighter, faster and generally more track-oriented 765LT this year. Power and torque have been bumped up to 754 hp and 590 lb ft, respectively, while engineers have managed to shave 80 kg off the weight. If the previous 675LT and 600LT models are anything to go by, this latest longtail model should be something special indeed. Need we say more?
Ciao bella as you drive up in the best 2020 Ferrari. Ferrari will tell you that the new F8 Tributo is a replacement for the excellent 488 GTB, but in reality it's more of a heavy facelift. However, it's a facelift that uses a lot of revised technical know-how from the stunning track-focused 488 Pista and 488 Challenge race car, so we can probably cut Ferrari some slack in that regard. Either way, its twin-turbocharged V8 now develops 710 hp and 568 lb ft and is - surprise - as supremely quick as ever. It may still lack some of the acoustic drama of the old naturally aspirated 458 Italia V8, but the introduction of a new hot-tube resonator helps pump a touch more noise into the cabin. Variable boost management builds torque gradually, so not only does it feel more like a naturally aspirated engine, but turbo lag is all but eliminated. The F8 Tributo's chassis, however, is the main attraction. It not only makes the stratospheric power of the engine accessible, but also gives the car an otherworldly level of agility, balance and handling. What fascinating parallels to the inspiring, discreet Escort models.
The listing wouldn't be complete without the matching Lambo. Which one do you think it will be? We're talking about the Huracán, of course. Only the makers of the rarest and most expensive hand-built exotics in the world can compete with Lamborghini when it comes to building cars with pure combustion drama, traffic-calming good looks and wild, unbridled spirit. The Huracán may be the company's entry-level model, but it's no second-rate offering when it comes to its sensational styling or its fantastically wild naturally aspirated V10 engine: an engine that excels in equal measures of speed, responsiveness and audible character.
With these fantastic new models, you will shine on your next date and be remembered by the lady while she is already looking forward to the next GFE with you. Will you let the lady take the wheel too?
