  • 2012 Aston Martin DBS

  • Price: $275,461
  • Mileage: 11 mpg city/17 mpg highway

When you just have to go 190 mph, the DBS with its 510-horsepower 6-liter V-12 engine stands at the ready. A six-speed manual transmission ushers engine production to the rear wheels. Getting to 60 mph from a standstill takes slightly more than four seconds.

Irrevocably linked to the James Bond movies, Aston Martin conjures up visions of exotic locales and exciting adventures, making wealthy owners less likely to care that it's a gas guzzler. In its DBS guise, it comes with assorted creature comforts such as a 13-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system, hard-drive navigation system and Bluetooth connectivity.
