While it was once a racing-only, stratospheric number, there are a lot of cars that make more than 500 horsepower these days. At the 2012 L.A. Auto Show, three more members joined the club--though we know which one we'd pick if handed a rucksack full of cash.

That one, of course, is the SLS AMG Black Series. Not that the Jaguar XFR-S and Volvo S60 Polestar aren't very interesting cars in their own right, but, hey--631 horsepower plus canards and gullwings? Sign us up.

If you missed any of our 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show coverage, you can catch up on all of it right here.
