Enticed by the XKR-S, but decide that the coupe was just a little too impractical? Say hello to the 2014 Jaguar XFR-S ($99,000). The fastest, most powerful sedan Jaguar has ever produced, the XFR-S is powered by the same 5.0L supercharged V8 as its two-doored stablemate, giving it 550hp and a 0-60 mph time of just 4.4 seconds on its way to a top speed of 186 mph. Despite the speed, it still manages to eek out 23 mpg highway, and also features a ZF eight-speed transmission, wide 20-inch Varuna forged alloy wheels, and plenty of carbon fiber components to help reduce weight and lift. Limited to just 100 units in the U.S., it'll go on sale next summer.
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.
