Dream big for the holiday season with these superior rides
Hope is a big theme for the holiday season, so why not turn your desires to some of the most impressive cars available. We're talking about cars from the likes of Tesla, BMW and Shelby that will give you years of appreciation.
Are you a little tight on garage space, but you still need the versatility of a three-row crossover? The Tesla Model X, with its trick "Falcon Wing" folding rear doors make ingress and egress supremely easy in tight spaces. And its electric drive makes for a very green holiday season.
The Ford Shelby GT350 Mustang is the perfect gift for the track rat in your life. It's not just some tarted-up Mustang -- this one's packing a brand new flat-plane-crank V-8 that revs to a stratospheric 8,250 rpm. Plus, the exhaust note is the stuff that gearhead dreams are made of.
The all-new BMW 7 Series occupies the cutting edge of automotive technology. Its chassis makes extensive use of carbon fiber, the iDrive infotainment system accepts gesture controls, and it even comes with its own Samsung Galaxy tablet. Extreme technophiles, your ride has arrived.
The new Audi TT coupe is quite the gorgeous small sports car, but its roadster variant shines just a bit more light on this much-improved vehicle. Virtual Cockpit puts infotainment right in front of your face, and unlike most other sports cars, this one's comfortable enough for a long weekend of top-down cruising. The TT has really come into its own for 2016.
Comfort, speed, and outright opulence combine to make one wonderful luxury coupe. Formerly the CL-Class, the S-Class Coupe takes everything that's great about the four-door S-Class and transfers it to a sleeker design without losing anything in translation. It's like driving a gilded cloud.
