6 flashy 6-figure cars for the 1 percent

If Italian luxury is your thing, you can't go wrong with the Maserati. While it's billed as a luxury sedan, critics say the Maserati Quattroporte has plenty of power to push the performance envelope. It also has an impressive six-speed automatic transmission that rivals some well-known Italian sports cars. And to max out performance, Maserati offers two levels of suspension -- normal and sport -- through its Skyhook adjustable suspension system, which drivers can engage with the press of a button.

The Maserati Quattroporte is offered in three models. But with a starting price of more than $100,000, even the base model is flashy. Aside from all the usual creature comforts in a luxury car such as touch-screen navigation and iPhone synching, Maserati offers buyers numerous options for customization because of a relatively limited production run.

The top model, the Quattroporte Sport GT S, has a 4.7-liter V-8 engine that produces 450 horsepower.
