Nothing says "sensible" like a Volvo. Yet the top-of-the-line S80 features good power from its V-8 and a refined look.

The stylish cabin of the S80, with this unique floating console, shows that this car doesn't waste space, a good personal value to project.

Wood insets in the M35's interior make it an easy transition to move from the car to your office. Or, with the car's Bluetooth cell phone integration, you can make the M35 your office.

Although not for the executive at the top of the corporate ladder, the BMW 535i's well-recognized sport driving characteristics will elicit praise from higher-ups.

Stepping up the corporate ladder, the CL550 fits well with the corporate inner circle. After a hard day at work, its seats will literally massage your tired back.

The beauty of the CL550's pillar-less design is not to be ignored. Expect envy from colleagues when you roll down all the windows on a sunny day.

The Super V8 represents old-world sophistication with Jaguar's timeless design. But it doesn't lag on performance, either, with its supercharged V-8 engine.

The Super V8 works well as a chauffeur-driven car, with tables that fold down for the rear seats and video monitors in the headrests.

There is no better mix of aggressive performance, refinement, and cabin luxury than the S63. The car is an S-class, tuned up by Mercedes-Benz's AMG division for superior speed and handling.

The rear of the S63 is very roomy and comfortable, and it gets its own sunroof.

There can be no greater statement that you've made it to the top of the hill than the sheer magnificence of the Rolls-Royce Phantom. Its massive, coach-style body makes an impression.

The rear seat of the Phantom is the biggest and most comfortable we've seen in a car. It wraps around like a sofa, while fold-down tables let you get some work done.
