These 2014 models make summer all the sexier.
Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series
Based largely on the legendary GT3 racecar, this RWD supercar, with a 6.3-liter V8 distributing 622 horsepower, 468 lb-ft of torque and four drive modes, will please most speed demons. Topping out at 196 mph, the beauty sprints from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds while an 11-speaker, 1,000-watt Bang & Olufsen BeoSound system serves up premium audio. Closing the Gullwing doors, gripping that Alcantara AMG speed-sensitive power steering wheel, melting into the leather interior and blasting off like a fighter jet never gets old. Pricing starts around $275,000.
Bentley Continental GT Speed
Few convertibles are as majestic. This four-seater—with superior engineering (8-speed ZF transmission) and bespoke craftsmanship (finely stitched cobra-design linen interior)—takes this classic model to new heights. Approximately $239,000- $275,000.
