2011 Chevrolet Volt

This car uses a 16-kilowatt hour lithium-ion battery coupled with a 3-cylinder, 1-liter gasoline engine that powers a 53 kW generator.The Volt represents a completely new paradigm: a mass-produced, affordably priced, all-electric sedan sold in the U.S., specifically as a daily driver. If it succeeds, it could lead the way to GM's reinvention as a strong American automaker.
GM execs have said the Volt will go 230 miles on one charge, although the car has yet to get EPA certification. Top speed is 120 mph.
Estimated price is $40,000. Chevy execs have said the price will be determined in part by the price of gas.

The Maybach luxury cars

Maybach Landaulet
The $1.4 million Maybach Landaulet is a chauffeur-driven car with a top that can be opened fully at the rear, while the chauffeur's compartment remains completely enclosed. A partition screen with clear glass and curtains dissects the car, and folding tables in the back allow for afternoon Champagne lunches on the go--on reclining white-leather seats, of course. When the weather doesn't allow for such things, there's a Dunhill umbrella stowed in a special slot on the door.
Maybach 62 Zeppelin
If you hate the smell of exhaust or the skunk you just passed on the highway? you should buy the Maybach 62 Zeppelin, your nose will never have to suffer again. The car comes with a built-in, illuminated atomizer that gently diffuses the fragrance of your choice throughout the cabin. The cost of the car is around $506,500.

Brabus SV12 R

Brabus SV12 R -is going to be the world’s fastest and most powerful luxury sedan. Based on the latest Mercedes S 600 facelift, the SV12 R develops 750 hp and can hit a top speed of 211 mph.
In order to obtain the power increase, Brabus added larger turbochargers, a more efficient intercooling system and a stainless-steel high-performance exhaust system with four tailpipes and metal catalysts with low back pressure. As a result the engine delivers 750 hp at 5,500 rpm and a peak torque of 995 lb-ft at 2,100 rpm. The SV12 R sprints from 0 to 60 mph in 4.0 seconds, can hit the 124 mph barrier after just 11.9 seconds and is electronically limited to a top speed of 211 mph.
Next to this immense power upgrade, the SV12 R also adds custom-tailored front aluminum sport fenders that replace their production counterparts, an air vent made from clear-coated carbon and a horizontal brace that spans the outlet with embossed BRABUS signet and integrated LED lights, BRABUS rocker panels that feature integrated entrance lights and light-alloy wheels with diameters ranging from 17 to 21 inches.
