The best V-8 luxury cars are surprisingly rare, and for what’s perhaps a surprising reason. While there are plenty of incredible new technologies now available to the auto industry, and the world’s premium automakers have retained an equal commitment to supporting traditional craftsmanship as well, the V-8 engine itself has become an unusual sight. In the luxury segments in particular, many of the more athletic brands have switched to high-powered V-6 turbos for their larger entries, which in the past would have merited the two extra cylinders. And there are still a handful of 12-cylinder entries among the ultra-lux automakers. Luckily, we did come up with a list of luxurious rides that have been carefully chosen to combine V-8 power and premium amenities.
