The Mercedes SUV comes with a V12 biturbo engine producing 630 horsepower and 738 pounds per foot of torque. Only 99 cars are being made and sold in the fall, but the car won't be available in the US.

3. Rolls-Royce unveiled a car painted with actual diamonds at this year's Geneva Motor Show. Rolls-Royce made the paint using 1,000 "ethically sourced" diamonds.

The paint, named "Diamond Stardust," was applied to the top section of Rolls-Royce's Ghost luxury car.

Rolls-Royce didn't say how much the special paint job costs, but a typical Ghost starts at $300,000. The car was commissioned for an individual collector.

4. Ferrari's gorgeous 812 Superfast made its official debut at the Geneva Motor Show in early March. It comes with a 6-liter V12 engine that produces a staggering 780 hp.

5. McLaren's second generation Super Series is a sight to behold. The new McLaren 720S comes with a 4.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 engine that produces 710 hp.

The car boasts a top speed of 212 mph and can reach 60 mph in 2.8 seconds. The 720S will cost around $290,000, according to Bloomberg.

6. Don't discount it because it's a station wagon — the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo can produce up to 550 hp with the twin-turbo V6 engine option.
