If you could buy any car, what would you choose? A Ferrari? Aston Martin? Bugatti? Rolls-Royce? Lamborghini? Or how about something more elegant — and powerful — like a Bentley Mulsanne?

Bruce Aldrich and James Raia, co-hosts of the Weekly Driver Podcast, recently discussed best new cars for less than $25,000. In our new episode, we both pick four fantasy cars we’d like to own.

Bruce chose a combination of vehicles he’s driven and others he longs to drive. James selected four upscale vehicles he’s driven during his 14 years as an automotive reviewer.

The vehicles on our respective lists range from about $140,000 (2008 Audi A8) to about more that $400,000, the (2017 Bentley Mulsanne).

The upscale car segment isn’t about practicality. It’s all about refinement, pampering, extravagance and owning automotive art.

So what eight cars did we select? Besides the powerful Audi A8 and the elegant Bentley Mulsanne, sedans and sports car rule.

But we both picked the same car as our No. 1 choice. It’s the fastest sport utility vehicle ever made. It’s plush, quiet and controls the road. The driver advances in superior craftsmanship; the passengers ride in serenity and complete comfort, massages, champagne flutes and removable tablets for back seat occupants.

What vehicle(s ) did Bruce and James both select? The 2017 Bentley Bentayga, of course.
