JAGUAR XK Three hundred horsepower with an automatic six. Its top is soft, so this might be a bit cool during New England winters (but if you can afford it at $82,000, you've probably got a winter car). Still, a fine design from the Cat.
MERCEDES-BENZ SL 550 The most expensive car here at nearly $100,000, it has 382 horsepower and a retractable hardtop. My advice: Go drive a fully loaded SLK for around $65,000 first.
SATURN SKY No kidding. Not as fast or powerful , but it's fun and looks great. This is not a slow car, but slower than the rest in this batch, with only 177 horsepower. But it's worth a look, especially at about one-third the cost of the others .
