When it comes to car shopping, bells and whistles sometimes drive the decision, but choosing your ultimate vehicle should come down to finding an exhilarating driving experience. The all-new Cadillac ATS offers an advanced engine lineup that's impressive for a luxury sedan and that makes driving, well, fun. Car buyers get to choose from three engines depending on their driving style and power preference: a powerful 2.0L turbo that delivers an impressive 272 HP, an award-winning 3.6L V6 engine that boasts 321 HP, or a 2.5L engine that offers an EPA-estimated 22 city/32 highway MPG. No matter which engine you choose, you can expect jaw-dropping driving dynamics that extend beyond exceptional acceleration and handling. Responsive technology like the available Adaptive Forward Lighting system that swivels the HID headlamps to illuminate your path as you turn, help the all-new Cadillac ATS bring a holistic approach to the highway — equal parts response and responsibility.

Speed obsessed sedan lovers have another new option. Although not substantially revised from the prior model, the new Maserati Quattroporte ($TBA) does offer a sleeker roofline, frameless doors, three side windows, and a more stylish interior, with a large touchscreen display in the dash and rear entertainment monitors for backseat riders. And, if the images are any indication, a 530hp V8 engine, which would be a healthy bump over the current 425.
Who said compact cars have to come with a compact list of amenities? The 2013 Mercedes-Benz A-Class ($TBA) brings the build quality and interior refinement MB's known for to the compact segment, with a 1.6L or 2.0L engine offering between 115 and 211hp, hooked up to either a six-speed manual or 7G-DCT dual-clutch automatic transmission, an optional iPhone hookup that uses a special app to give you full functionality, and plenty of safety features like adaptive Brake Assist and Collision Prevention Assist. It doesn't look to shabby, either, but unfortunately for us Yankees there's been no word of a stateside release.
You've seen the video. Now drive the car. The infamous Otis Maybach ($TBA) driven by Kanye and Jay-Z in their video for the Grammy award-winning "Otis" is coming up for auction. This 2004 Maybach 57 was customized to the max, with the doors removed and mounted as wings, the front grille stuck to the back, an oversized, fire-spewing exhaust, and a crude sheet metal body kit placed over the wheels — and with all the proceeds going to benefit East African drought sufferers, you can feel a little better about spending your dough on what's now essentially a glorified golf cart.
