First Drive: Rolls-Royce 102EX
"All we know for sure is that our customers love the 12-cylinder and hate diesel. Take that to the bank!" So declares Richard Carter, the most excellently British (even though he's South African) head of global Rolls-Royce PR. See, Rolls-Royce has a problem. Every vehicle it manufactures has a twin-turbo 12-cylinder engine that -- let's face it -- is about as green as Arnold Schwarzenegger's Hummer. Not the bio-diesel one. And it's not that Rolls-Royce cares about being green. It doesn't. No, its problem is that its customers love their Rolls-Royces. In fact, they love their Rollers so much that 2010 was a record sales year, with 2,711 cars sold, an increase of 171 percent compared with 2009.

First Test: 2010 Rolls-Royce Ghost
The 2011 Rolls-Royce Ghost is a historic automobile - the first small Rolls-Royce launched since the 1949 Silver Dawn. "Small" is a relative term, however. Though 17.1-in. shorter than a Phantom sedan, the 212.6-in. Ghost is still 4.3-in. longer than a Bentley Continental Flying Spur, and weighs a not insubstantial 5381 lb. The pricetag's hardly small, either. The base Ghost stickers for $246,700, and most cars sold in the United States will come in at $300,000 or more, says Rolls-Royce Motor Cars North America President Paul Ferraiolo.

If you have to think before you tick the options box, you can't afford a Ghost. Look at our $308,350 tester. Those 20-in. alloy wheels? That'll be $5000, thanks....

2010 Aston Martin Rapide Test Drive
VALENCIA, SPAIN—Aston Martin hasn't offered a four-door since the ultralinear ASTON MARTIN LAGONDA became extinct in the late 1980s. That's about to change. Now Aston Martin revisits the sedan genre with its new $200,000 Rapide, global recession be damned. This coupé-like four-door may seem audacious for these austere times, but considering the price tags on storied British nameplates like Bentley and Rolls Royce (whose entry-level Ghost is still a steep proposition at $245,000), the ASTON MARTIN RAPIDE starts to look slightly less risqué.Public image aside, how does Aston Martin's newest family member motor? We spent a day touring the Spanish countryside to find out.

Cadillac XTS Platinum Concept at 2010 Detroit Auto Show
The 21st century has proven that eco-friendly drivetrains can peacefully coexist with high-end design: witness the E85-compatible Bentley Continental Supersport, the Fisker Karma plug-in hybrid, and the fact that Rolls-Royce is even considering an all-electric version of the imposing Phantom.Riffing on the not-so-outlandish concept of a luxurious alt-fuels future, Cadillac's XTS combines plug-in hybrid technology and plush, modern design. The XTS Platinum Concept is powered by Cadillac's direct injected, 3.6 liter V6, which works in conjunction with a plug-in hybrid system to deliver an estimated 350 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque to all four wheels. When plugged in to a standard electrical...
