We've been lusting after a Mercedes SL ever since the current body style was announced, but this new edition has us flat-out drooling. The 50th Anniversary Mercedes Benz SL550 ($TBA) commemorates the (surprise!) 50th anniversary of the original 1957 300SL, and it does it in style. Powered by a 382 hp V-8, this Pewter Metallic beauty features plenty of gadgetry for your inner geek, and wraps you in ventilated Cognac Brown leather seats while you buzz down the road on 18-inch wheels. We don't know the price, but unfortunately for us we're guessing that if we have to ask, it's too expensive.
Although we're all set to pick up a new car next week, we're pretty sure that if you ever see us driving a Bugatti Veyron ($1.2 million) we either stole it or just won the lottery. The car, while sporting a heart-breaking price tag, also packs an impressive 1001 horsepower under the hood, gets from 0-60 mph in less than three seconds, and has an astonishing top speed of 253 mph. Also, be sure to check out the slick Bugatti Veyron Configurator, which lets you choose between a rainbow of two-tone paint combos and matching interior.
Subaru today unveiled a new edition of its Impreza WRX STI for those of you wanting rally car power but looking for more everyday driving comfort and subtler exterior styling. The Subaru Impreza WRX STI Limited ($TBA) has all of the performance of the standard model (turbocharged and intercooled 2.5-liter 293-hp engine), but with less aggressive styling and a richer interior. The understated exterior has a new trunk-mounted lip spoiler that replaces the standard model's large dual-plane rear spoiler, and also gains new 17-inch Enkei wheels, a power glass moonroof and a deep front lip spoiler. The refined interior replaces the blue high-grip Alcantara fabric seats with heated leather seats and also adds new dark gray metallic bezels and interior trim. The WRX STI Limited will be available this Fall in a limited run of 800 numbered units — 400 in Satin White Pearl and 400 in Urban Gray Metallic.
