Top Gear’s Top Five Luxury Cars
So big and smooth, it should probably have sails. And a tiller. And a man at the helm. When it comes to stately speed, nothing does it better than a Rolls.
It’s here, and its even better than we expected. Technology and luxury combined to seamless effect (to create TechLux!). Trounces A8 and 7-Series rivals.
3. Bentley Mulsanne
Specs: 505bhp, 752lb ft, 0-62mph 5.3secs, VMax 184mph, 16.8mpg, CO2 393g/km
Like the wonderful old Arnage it replaces, the big ol’ Bentley will show those peasants who’s boss. And who cares if it has a slightly piggy nose?
4. Range Rover LWB
Specs: 339bhp, 517lb ft, 0-62mph 6.6secs, VMax 135mph, 32.5mpg, CO2 229g/km
Another car that, like the Porsche 911 Cabrio, doesn’t sound great on paper, and another one that works better than it has any right to.
The old one was probably the prettiest saloon ever. This one is a touch frumpy, but actually feels better to drive. There’s even a V6 option.
