Millionaires are a growth market. The ranks of the seven-figured in the U.S. and Canada rose 10% last year, according to Merrill Lynch & Co. One of every 121 North Americans, about 2.7 million, now qualify as "high net worth individuals." The rolls of the highest rollers, with personal wealth greater than $30 million, increased 9% worldwide. So, remember, as you plan your family's financial future: Now is an excellent time to be wealthy. Of course, $1 million isn't what it used to be.

THE sun-scrubbed desert between Los Angeles and Las Vegas scrolls by with an empty whisper, a high-def silent movie panning past double-thick acoustic windows. East of Barstow, the Volkswagen Phaeton W12 is running at speeds best reserved for those with diplomatic immunity, and yet the big dreadnaught -- with a 12-cylinder, 444-hp butter churn under the hood -- is eerily unstrained, purring along in top gear, levitated on the four-corner air suspension.

BOTH are four-door, six-figure super-sedans -- block-long saloon cars floating on computer-controlled air suspensions and rolling on the most aggressive wheel packages this side of a Roman chariot race. Both have more horses than the back lot of Republic Pictures, more valves than the Stanford marching band, more gears than a tourbillon watch, more lumber than the Dodgers dugout.
