(Newser) – Gas prices may be sinking, but the owners of luxury and high-performance vehicles wouldn't know it. Factoring in $4-plus premium gas, depreciation, insurance, fees, and sales tax, some top cars cost double over a 5-year stretch what owners first paid. Forbes wheels out the priciest (including 5-year pricetag):

  1. Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG (luxury sedan): $252,209
  1. Mercedes-Benz SL65 (sports car): $231,827
  1. Mercedes-Benz SL600 (convertible): $181,317
  1. Mercedes-Benz G55 (SUV): $159,801
  1. Lexus LS600 (hybrid): $143,355
