People that spend $40,000 to $60,000 are discerning shoppers. Especially if they're spending that money on V8 sedans. Here's what the pros think about the cars available.

Like today, cars from Cadillac, BMW, Audi, Mercedes, Infiniti, and Lexus make up the V8 luxury sector, but their places in the market are far different than you remember. Lexus is a young startup and the LS400 is "ground breaking."

The BMW 740i is a new car. The Cadillac STS is the cheapest out there. This is actually a rather useful test if you're looking for a 20 year old luxury boulevard cruiser. And you get to see how well an Infiniti Q45 does on a drag strip. That's worth the price of entry alone!
