 2004 Luxury Buyer's Guide
 2004 Luxury Buyer's Guide

by Martha Hindes

Luxury. The word has a touch, a feel, a sensuality like nothing else. Think castles in Spain or 100-foot yachts plowing the summer waters of the playgrounds of royalty. Think a top-floor Trump Tower mega suite, only one in your double digit string of residences. Or even your own G-5 luxury jet touching down on a private Mediterranean island.

Whether we dream about Ferrari, Aston Martin, Bentley or a slightly more attainable luxury vehicle doesn't matter one bit. As discerning consumers, we know true luxury when we see it, the kind that almost gravitates to a precisely honed taste. If, perhaps, we have endured to win payback time or simply have it by virtue of longevity, we expect the best of the best in our multitude of choices including the automobiles we drive. And it's there, in the driveway or garage, or on a tarmac perhaps, awaiting a pocket-bourne electronic key fob signal to open the door or launch the starter sequence, bringing the power to life. This is way beyond a wispy dream of something that might be.

ROAD & TRAVEL Magazine likes to think big when it comes to luxury. We take on all intenders and sort out the best with an eye for a variety of individual tastes. We think our lineup of luxury autos has something for every discerning car lover. We invite you to read on.
