Maserati GranCabrio Sport

Apart from its Trident logo, Maserati has recently been known for making very fast, but slightly feminine, cars. That's starting to change. The Maserati GranCabrio Sport ($TBA) sports a manly, more powerful and fuel-efficient version of Maserati's all-alloy 4.7-litre V8, good for 450 horsepower and a top speed 177, along with the ZF six-speed automatic transmission, a revised version of the Skyhook active-suspension system, new grooved and drilled dual-cast brake discs, and more masculine bodywork — because you don't want to be seen driving the same car as Gabby from Desperate Housewives.

  • Imperia GP

    The trend towards retro car designs continues with the Imperia GP (€80,000; roughly $110,000). Resurrecting a brand name that's been dead for over half a century, the GP is a plug-in hybrid with a turbocharged 1.6L four-cylinder combustion engine and a perky electric engine for a range of around 44 miles on battery power alone, a 0 to 100 km/h time of six seconds in electric mode — and only four seconds when in hybrid mode — and exterior styling that recalls the company's past glories, while bringing the design language into the 21st century.

  • McLaren MP4-12C

    It's not often a new car from a small(ish) manufacturer can run with the Ferraris, Porsches, and Lamborghinis of the world, but that's certainly the case with the McLaren MP4-12C ($230,000). This spiritual successor to the legendary F1 uses a 592-horsepower 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 and a seven-speed twin-clutch gearbox to go from 0-60 in as little as 3.2 seconds, from 0-125 in 8.9 seconds, a Proactive chassis control system that allows for instant adjustment of the car's settings to match the situation, brake-steer technology borrowed from Formula 1, and other goodies that make it as beastly on the track as it is attention-grabbing off of it.
