And now something for our high net worth readers. The Maybach has often been the go to ride for world leaders, presidents, ambassadors, and 16 year old Soundcloud rappers. The Pullman S650 is the latest version of this car from the renowned German automaker. Featuring a crazy powerful 630 horsepower 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 engine, armored plating and a powered partition window so you can have your privacy in the back, this Maybach is the essence of luxury. Base models start at $650,000 but when you add in the essential upgrades like armor plating and engine customizations, the price shoots north of a cool $1 million.

Each year at the annual Easter Jeep Safari our favorite off-roading automaker releases their concept designs for the future. This year, Jeep showed off seven new designs that range from vintage to modern. Our favorite was the 4Speed, a Wrangler-based designed that aims to pack all of their usual power and performance into a smaller, more light-weight package. Shortening the traditional Wrangler by 22 inches, the 4Speed sports a carbon fiber hood, fender flares and a carbon fiber rear tub. A raked windshield, wider door openings and a custom built cage all lead to a design that makers dubbed "aggressively swept back."
