Big two-door Mercedes models have never necessarily made a particularly sporty statement, but they are fast and satisfying. The 2015 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe, which is scheduled to arrive late this year, features a 4.7-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 engine producing 449 hp. Mercedes-Benz’s Magic Body Control suspension has a “curvetilting” function, meaning it leans into corners like a superbike. (www.mbusa.com)

Aside from the entirely up-to-date nose with a new hood, bumper, and neon-like lights, the 2015 Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II remains a traditional Rolls. It has 12 cylinders under the hood, pumping out 565 hp. The Ghost has been around for five years now, so it was about time for the Series II freshening. (www.rolls-royce.com)

The 6.0-liter twin-turbo 12-cylinder engine gets a boost to 626 hp for the 2015 Bentley Continental GT Speed, sending the coupe to a reported top speed of 206 mph, making it the fastest production Bentley ever. The convertible version is limited to 203 mph. Both models are expected to be available this summer. (www.bentleymotors.com)

When rumors of a redesigned Audi TT were confirmed, many enthusiasts of the brand were hoping for a styling departure from the current model. The 2016 Audi TT (and the more powerful TTS version) looks a little more aggressive and businesslike than the current model. Its turbocharged 4-cylinder engine will reportedly produce about 230 hp, with the TTS delivering about 80 hp more. The interior, at least, is typical Audi, meaning it’s among the industry benchmarks. Audi will announce pricing closer to the new car’s on-sale date next year. (www.audi.com)

The Lazareth Wazuma V8F is as ridiculous as it looks: It is basically a Ferrari V-8 engine and BMW transmission with a seat and motorcycle handlebars. The French company says it will build the car for a little over $200,000 each. (www.lazareth.com)
