Power and grace often top the wish list of the modern luxury car consumer, and automakers are responding in kind. From the German blazers to racing packages worthy of Japanese sports cars, high-performance models are joining the most luxurious cabins in existence. Here are seven luxury sedans that pack the power for drivers who like muscle in their stately rides.
Kia (KIMTF.PK) took luxury auto lovers by surprise when it unveiled the K900 rear-wheel-drive sedan at the L.A. Auto Show in November. Targeted at buyers of German luxury cars who love performance, the K900 will have an optional 5.0-liter V8 capable of generating 420 horsepower. That’s plenty of performance to go into a spacious RWD ride. Pricing is expected to range from $50K to $60K, making it the value choice in the segment when it appears in spring 2014.
