8 luxury cars that are worth the price tag
These motors don't come cheap - and here are the reasons why
Luxury cars are more than means of transportation. They’re more like partners for life (or just a very long time). So it makes sense that most of them come with a high price tag considering their quality and features. Below are a few that we would pick despite their eye-watering prices, because let’s be honest, those leather seats and 660 horsepower are worth it. Mercedes-Benz S-Class: This one is all about comfort and pleasant driving, which is why it’s our favourite Mercedes at the moment, especially for top business executives. The S-class still offers powerful engine options such as the V6 diesel as well as ultra-luxurious interior as always. Sounds like a pretty good deal to us. Prices start at approximately $100,640 (AED369,645). Porsche 718 Boxster S: Germans know how to make great cars, and we have to admire them for creating the Porsche 718 Boxster S. Featuring 345bhp horsepower, (has Porsche ever been slow?) and a lot of lateral grip, it makes for a great ride on almost any road. And do we really need to comment on the design and ultra-comfortable interior? Price is pretty affordable considering other options on the list: $68,400 (AED251, 230). Bentley Continental GT: It doesn’t get much classier than a Bentley (unless we’re talking about Rolls-Royce). The car practically yells ‘grandeur,’ which makes the brand’s Continental GT, its fastest car yet with a V8 S engine and 572 horsepower, all the more exciting to own. Class? Check. Speed? Check. Worth the $214,425 (AED787,572) price tag? We think so. Ferrari FF: When it comes to sports cars, Ferrari will always be at the top of the range. So it only makes sense that the brand’s four seat, four wheel drive Ferrari FF is a great catch. Built to be practical and easy to use on an everyday basis, the car features added torque and a more spacious cabin yet keeps it 660 horsepower. Its price starts at a staggering $300,000 (AED1.1 million). Wraith inspired by music: Besides being a sight for sore eyes (is not every Rolls-Royce a beauty?) the inspired by music creation is utterly pleasant to drive. One reason is because it’s a Wraith, the brand’s most powerful car, another reason is that it is extremely pleasant to drive as it’s super smooth on bumps and turns, and three is because its high-tech sound system, copper dashboards, and all black interior makes you feel like Rock N Roll royalty. Maserati GranTurismo: Maserati has been trying to make cars that are good for everyday use. With the GranTurismo, we believe it has succeeded. While it is primarily a sports car with 400 horsepower, the Turismo has a lot of grip, feels easy to handle, and is comfortable to drive for long distances. So for us, the $152,600 (AED560,492) starting price is worth it. BMW M135i: We love this car because it’s a combination of two great BMW lines: the one series and the M range. It’s like a mini X5 with a cheaper price tag and M modifications and 320 horsepower. The heavy steering and good grip makes for balanced driving, too. The M135i is priced at $46,334 (AED170,182).
