As always, this year’s Super Bowl was supported by plenty of multimillion dollar car advertisements, with some raising more questions than answers. For those of you still wondering what exactly you were being sold, here’s a look at some of the more interesting autos showcased during the game.

As reported on Autos Section – FOXNews.com

Maserati Ghibli (pictured above)
The commercial for the Maserati Ghibli was called “Strike,” but it could’ve easily been named “First Strike.” While the $66,900 345 hp sports sedan is the Italian automaker’s first relatively mass-market car — and aimed at the likes of the BMW 5-Series, Mercedes-Benz E-Class, and other established mid-size luxury depicted in absentia in the ad as big, slow, lazy giants about to be taken out by their nimble new adversary — it will soon be followed by its first SUV, which is expected to be its best-seller, despite the fact that it will surely being bigger and less nimble than the Ghibli.
