For those loaded bipeds hoping to get one of the most memorable, undoubtedly visceral, and demanding rides around, they need not look any further than the 2011 Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2 Bicolore.

For a quick jaunt on a favorite road, the SLS Roadster is a capable athlete, albeit one that requires caution. Frankly, that’s all right with me, because around town, the Roadster is as tame as an S550, just with a much better exhaust. And it’s almost as comfortable.

Mercedes-Benz has stayed true to the SL’s roots, crafting a lighter, more powerful, more fuel-efficient roadster that’s as comfortable and classy as it is attention-getting and absurdly quick.

It is easy to understand why the XKR-S should be extremely popular with Jaguar fans, with its uncharacteristic speed and lithe cornering abilities. And when it comes to rarity, bombshell looks, and a truly earth-shaking voice, this cat’s got them all beat.

Does the C-Max Hybrid give the Prius V a run for its fuel-efficient money? If you’re a car nut who enjoys stylish five-passenger road machines, you already know the answer. And you’ll be insisting on a ride very soon.

Coupe

Even if g-forces don’t blow up and lap times resist slipping in this new Competition Package M3, it’s the hard-core, all-natural feeling that makes it the best $2500 you can spend on the model. Retaining the M3’s everyday practicality and comfort should make the buy all the more sweeter.

The 2012 IS F properly orchestrates its power and speed with admirable agility and livable ride quality. For an updated first-generation player, this Lexus has what it takes to make M and AMG quiver.

Having the fastest, most enjoyable car doesn’t mean having the most powerful or the priciest. The FR-S is what budget-themed performance is all about. It is a car that will likely redefine the Scion brand and the entry-level enthusiast car segment as a whole, too.

The Infiniti JX has obviously struck a chord with wealthy drivers looking for luxury crossover without an A in front of its name. It may have taken some time to get here, but for a certain type of buyer, the smart alternative could not have arrived soon enough.
