2018 BMW M760i xDrive -- The fresh generation of the 7 Series is sensational, and this upcoming model makes the most of those great bones with 610 hp, plus all the suspension and luxury features appropriate for a high-performance flagship sedan.
2018 Jaguar XJR575 -- The XJR is a little short on power compared to the S8 Plus (575 hp from a supercharged V8) and rear-drive only, but it comes with a distinct ambiance, style, and driving character.
2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class -- In a straight line, few cars can touch the big S (especially the AMG versions).
