Turns out the single guy car list was too domesticated, so I enlisted the help of my good friend, Money, to help come up with 5 of the most decadent vehicles on the planet. To paraphrase Johnny Drama,“You can’t roll chicks in a Volt, bro,” so these choices represent the pinnacle of engineering, the most intricate craftsmanship the most badass cars, etc. They’re the best cars money can buy and owning one means you’ll be able to walk into a party like that guy from the Heineken commercial, every time.
Maserati GranTurismo MC
Italian car designer Pininfarina designed Maserati’s super sports coupe with a racetrack mindset, allowing for 4.7 liters of V8 power pushing out 444 HP and 376 lb.-ft. of torque- perfect for dodging international arms dealers. Rolling up to the casino in the MC, Maserati’s newest, guarantees world class style without wrinkling the tux. With a distinguished yet stimulating appeal- this Maserati goes 186- the brand’s fastest production car manages to display its refined Italian curves whether in motion or simply standing still.
Best car for Bruce Wayne types who live social by day and adventurous after dusk
This bull is dangerous in the wrong hands- with a 691 HP mid-mounted V12 charging horns forward at up to 217 MPH, Aventador will reach 60 MPG in 2.9 seconds. This recently released auto messiah is cool enough for Bruce Wayne and when it again becomes obtainable- even with a $380,000 plus tag backorders have made this Batmobile a golden goose commodity- look forward to a vehicle that can compete with (and beat) and out-intimidate just about anything else on the market.
Best car for the person who literally has everything
Ariel Atom 500 V8
It’s not your typical super car – after 3 years of development this Atom will be rolled out to a total of 25 lucky souls, so you can be sure that this Christmas stocking gift will be personalized to your expectations. The brand, known for forgoing bulky annoyances like doors and roofs, boasts a power to weight ratio previously relegated to race cars with the Atom 500 V8. That translates to speeds in excess of 200 MPH and the Sadev 6 paddle airshift system allows for 2.3 second 0-60 acceleration, putting Atom 500 at the top of production car acceleration.
SSC Ultimate Aero
The Ultimate Aero is capable of 1,287 bhp and 1,112 lb.-ft. of torque- yes, really- which allows for 2.78 seconds 0-60 and a top tested speed of 257 MPH, though the projected top speed sits at 273 MPG. There’s a challenge to all the drivers out there- hit that mark. The Ultimate Aero is fitted with 2 Recaro racing seats, so it’s OK to take your date with you as you attempt land speed records. And for all the fans of American muscle, SSC is North American based, so when the 550 HP of your Shelby GT get old, hop into this spacecraft for good old fashioned terror.
Best car for the understated connoisseur
Audi R8 Spyder
Is it possible to call the R8 Spyder overlooked? Not normally, though it’s dangerously close to practical on this list. The 5.2 liter V10 Spyder will achieve a pedestrian 4 second 0-60 time, but its 525 HP are enough to make one feel all tingly inside. Plus, aside from the GranTurismo the Audi R8 can actually be driven on a daily basis, providing funds are in the upper tier. Though luggage space may cause concern, you certainly can’t complain about those pretty lines. Finding love is a certainty in the R8; getting a girlfriend is another problem.
