Earlier this week, Forbes announced the most anticipated luxury cars of 2008.  How do we know these cars are ultra-luxurious and just down-right special?  It’s simple.  They’re ultra-expensive.  In fact, most of them already have a two-year waiting list.mercedes-benz-slr-mclaren-roadster.bmp

Forbes reports that each of these cars will have significant impacts on the brands they represent, which will outpace the impact of their corresponding sales volumes.  I think that’s a very interesting comment and probably quite accurate.  At $412,000 and with a two-year waiting list, Rolls-Royce’s 2008 Drophead Coupe (the quintessential convertible), will do more to hype their image as a car company for the rich and powerful than it will for their bottomline.   These cars are meant to represent quality (i.e., extravagance) not quantity (i.e., most people can’t afford them).

Here is Forbes’ full list of luxury car manufacturers with highly anticipated, brand boosting 2008 car models:

    Those are some very nice cars. I like the BMW M3. And the Porsche. And the Audi. And the Mercedes. Basically, I’d take any of them in a blink. :D

    I love all of them but if I had to choose one I’d take the Volvo. My parents had one when I was younger and it was the most dependable care we ever owned.

    Yes, Jessica, I agree that Volvos are dependable. I remember several friends having used Volvos when I was in high school and college and those things ran forever. One of them had over 200,000 miles on it, and it still ran great!
