I find it very odd MSN, that you would list cars such as the Continental, a 70's Cadillac, the Porsche 959, the Murcielago, and the Austin Martin. Some of these are expensive super cars, but there are absolutely more expensive cars that are more extravagant and exclusive. Why is it every time you make these "lists", they are just random. Do car people and editors not review these lists?

i can't believe you included the 76 eldorado. why? it doesnt belong in the same room as the 57 model. notice how form is first in automakers minds again. function no longer is the driving force in design. although todays cars function pretty damn well. the older cars, (first half of last century) are just amazing. huge, fast, elegant, stately. fabulous cars where function follows form!

Elegantly designed 1955, 56, 57 THUNDERBIRD. Built for ordinary folk because they were priced around what a luxury sedan of the day would cost.

You had the opportunity to display the best of the best and these are what you choose. Where does MSN find these writers? The title is "The Most Extravagant Cars" Jesus do some research.

'76 Eldorado? Are you serious? Those are hard to GIVE away right now, much less sell.
The '56-'57 Continental Mark IIs were NOT Lincolns. Continental was a separate division within Ford Motor Company from 1956-1958, a step above the Lincoln division and the flagship of Ford. They are one of the most beautiful cars ever designed and look as good today as when they were first made.
And who can quibble with anything that came from the pen of the great Gordon Buehrig, who designed Duesenbergs, Auburns and Cords. The "Twenty Grand" was only one of his masterpieces!

Wasn't Oldsmobile (and probably Buick) making pillarless four door hardtops a few years before that 57 Eldorado?

Left out the Saleen S-7 and the Ford GT. The Saleen taught Ferrari to keep his mouth shut. A lesson he should have learned after the original Ford GT ran his tail ragged.

The "facts" presented about the Pierce-Arrow Silver Arrow are INCORRECT. Pierce-Arrow was based in Buffalo, New York until it's demise in 1938. Pierce's association with Studebaker began in 1928 and lasted until 1933. At no time during this association was Pierce production ever moved to South Bend. The Silver Arrows were built in the Buffalo Factory on Elmwood Avenue.
