This year promises to be an absolute thriller for adrenaline junkies, with the release of new cars from Lamborghini to Aston Martin.
We have picked out some of the top luxury vehicles set for release in 2017.
Lamborghini Aventador S
What better way to start off the year than by Lamborghini announcing their brand new car, the Aventador S.
With power, style and finesse packed into one, it’s the ultimate status symbol for anyone in Hong Kong.
But, questions may be asked about what makes the Aventador so special. Well, according to the dealer’s spokesman, Jason Lau, the 740hp, v12 machine capable of speeds up to 350km/h has a “new aerodynamic design, redeveloped suspension, increased power and new driving dynamics”.
But, this car doesn’t come cheap as it will cost more than the HK$6.65 million Aventador Coupe.
Aston Martin DB11
If you’re feeling the need for speed, then the Aston Martin DB11 is perfect for you.
Don’t let the outer sleek and stylish look fool you as this car is nothing but raw, primal power. Described as the most powerful production DB model ever, the DB11 comes equipped with a 600-horsepower, 5.2-litre twin-turbocharged V12 engine.
In addition to the 700Nm of torque and going from zero to 100km/h in less than four seconds, the car can also reach speeds of up to 320km/h.
The DB11 will be significantly cheaper than the Lamborghini Aventador S as it is priced at HK$3.58 million.

Porsche is continuing with its four-door theme and has unveiled a brand new model of the Panamera.
But, don’t be fooled by the fact that it doesn’t look as sharp as the Lamborghini Aventador S and Aston Martin DB11 as the Panamera has a top speed of 264km/h.
The car comes with a 550hp, four-litre V8 Panamera Turbo or a 440hp, 2.9-litre V6 Panamera 4S.
If you’re interested in the Panamera, it will cost you HK$1.46 million.
Ferrari GTC4Lusso T V8
Ferrari has been producing luxury sport cars for decades now and they have gone with a different look when it comes to their newest model, the GTC4Lusso T V8.
Make no mistake, the car still comes with all the normal bells and whistles you expect from Ferrari as it features a V8 engine that is capable of pumping out an incredible 760Nm of torque.
The GTC4Lusso T V8 is capable of going from zero to 100km/h in just 3.5 seconds and has a maximum speed of 320km/h. How’s that for you speed lovers!
Surprisingly, the GTC5Lusso T V8 will only cost HK$2.32 million.
BMW 5 Series (520d, 530i and 540i)
The seventh generation of the BMW 5 series is one to look out for if you prefer a more classic look.
With adaptive LED headlights, this series is “the most innovative and connected business sedan”, according to spokeswoman Katherine Ng.
“Its many intelligent functions are adopted from the BMW 7 Series, such as gesture control, wireless charging, voice command, and a display key,” she adds.
The 520d, which costs HK$569,000, comes with a 1,995cc 4-cylinder engine and has 184hp.
As for the 530i, both the luxury and sport edition have a 1,998cc 4-cylinder and boast 252hp. In regards to the price, the luxury edition costs HK$789,000, while the sport edition is slightly cheaper at HK$739,000.
Meanwhile, the 540i is by far the best of the lot as it possesses a 2,998cc 6-cylinder engine and has 340hp. With the upgrades in features, it is no surprise that it is the priciest model at HK$989,000.
