Heads of state. Monarchs. Really, really rich people. All wealthy, and all potential targets for protestors, kidnappers, or worse. The Mercedes-Maybach S 600 Pullman Guard lets them and their inner circe travel in style, comfort, and with a sound piece of mind. This 6.5 meter long luxury conveyance has all the features you'd expect, like wall-to-wall leather, four rear seats that face each other, with reclining options for VIPs, incredible legroom, LCD monitors, and a partition wall that can both lower and change from transparent to opaque with the press of a button. But it's the safety equipment that makes it special, including not only protection from bullets, but from bombs as well, and a twin-turbo V-12 engine producing 530hp to move the 5.6 ton vehicle out of dangerous situations quickly.
Birthed from the ashes of the Fisker Karma, the Karma Revero offers an intoxicating mix of performance, styling, and eco-friendly sensibility. It's primarily driven by a pair of dual electric motors, powered by a lithium-ion battery pack with a 50 mile range. An internal combustion engine kicks in when needed to generate power, giving it an overall range of 300 miles. Quickness and agility are helped along by a lightweight aluminum spaceframe, while a solar roof gives you a mile a day of range, and the futuristic interior with touchscreen controls keeps you comfortable behind the wheel.
Ford's popular hot hatch is no slouch to begin with, cranking out 350 hp. Obviously someone thought that wasn't enough. The Hennessey Ford Focus RS boosts the output of the 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine to over 400 hp, thanks to a software upgrade, new high-flow air filter, and a new stainless exhaust mid pipe. The HPE400 upgrade will also come with special badging, and can be installed DIY or by the company, who will throw in a dyno tune, as well.
It's not the fastest production car ever made. But it is the third, and unlike the LaFerrari and Porsche 918 Spyder, it doesn't cost a million plus. The Tesla Model S P100D is Elon Musk's latest road rocket. Fueled by a 100 kWh battery, the car's all-wheel drive system has a Ludicrous mode that propels the car from 0-60 in just 2.5 seconds. The same battery also gives the car a range of 315 miles, making it the first all-electric to break the 300 mile barrier. Otherwise, it's the same Model S you already know, with a sleek, unassuming design, high-tech, spartan interior, and autonomous features that get better with every update.
