Mercedes Benz CL 65 AMG 40th Anniversary Edition

Mercedes Benz CL 65 AMG 40th Anniversary Edition

We're not sure if there are actually any more of these available to buy (only 40 were made total), but this special edition AMG Benz really shines. The Mercedes Benz CL 65 AMG 40th Anniversary Edition ($295,000) offers the usual AMG upgrades — perfected styling and a 6.0-liter V12 Biturbo engine that's good for 612-hp — along with a paint finish that you won't find on any other production model car. Called Alubeam, the silvery paint is made with pigment particles that measure just 30 to 50 nanometers (much smaller than normal metallic paint), allowing it to coat the surface more evenly and reflect the light more intensively. Basically, it "gleams like liquid metal" and seems to be "stretched over the vehicle body like a metallic skin," as Mercedes says.

  • 2007 Mini Cooper S

    Although externally very similar to its previous incarnation, the new, larger 2007 Mini Cooper S ($TBA; late 2006) replaces nearly every internal piece, and all the body panels are new to this redesign. The S features a 175 hp turbocharged engine that comes coupled with a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters, an air intake on the hood, MINI's classic toggle-switch interior, and standard run-flat tires. With all this and more added on to what was already a solid package, we're left wishing we had waited to pick up our new rides until we test drove this.

  • Toyota Yaris

    The Toyota Yaris is small in size and price, but big in efficiency. While the Yaris (starting at $10,950) only produces 106 hp, the ultra-compact ride keeps you in the green with its 40 mpg fuel rating. Available in a liftback or sedan, the Yaris comes standard with a 1.5-liter DOHC 16-valve VVT-i 4-cylinder engine, tons of pockets and cup holders, and the most design you can buy for under $13K. Options include an AM/FM CD player with MP3/WMA playback capability, auxiliary audio jack, and remote keyless entry.
