We have focused on hunting down deals for practical vehicles and affordable compacts in recent articles, but big incentives exist even within the ultra-luxury segment where some savings can eclipse the total vehicle price of some entry-level vehicles.

While the buyers of vehicles with a $100,000 price tag is a fairly small club, the competitive spirit among auto makers remains the same regardless of segment. Models nearing the end of their life-cycle with re-designs on the horizon will still require incentives to help clear inventory.

The five-figure discounts featured in this week's deals will still likely not be enough to put these vehicles within the reach for the average consumer, but aspirational drivers looking to climb up the model lineup can take this as a glimpse into auto makers' flagship product offerings and plan for the future.
