Yes, it's a bit silly to think about a brand synonymous with chauffeurs and Grey Poupon as "edgy", yet there's no denying these Rolls Royce Black Badge Editions carry with them a hint of menace missing from anything else in their lineup. As the name suggests, both the Ghost and the Wraith see their chrome darkened, their paint made as deep a black as possible, their wheels upgraded to special carbon composite, and their iconic Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornaments draped in black. Upgraded 6.6L V12s provide improved performance, and the interiors are outfitted in bold colors to provide some contrast amidst all the darkness.
Most headlines focus on Tesla's 0-60 times. Yet range is far more important on a daily basis — which is why the new Tesla Model S 100D is so remarkable. It uses the same 100kWh battery as the flagship P100D, but instead of ludicrous performance, it's built for long-range driving, traveling up to 335 miles per charge. That's the longest range of any EV currently on the market. Don't worry that it's become slow in the process, either: while the 4.2 second 0-60 time can't touch the P100D's 2.4 sprint, it's still faster than a base model 911.
