About a year ago I drove a Phantom around Austin Texas one weekend. Gawd what a car! Drove like a big, soft, butter creamy, powerful luxury car. It was happily not trying to be a blatant Teutonic sports sedan. That is nice but would have been a huge mistake for a car like this. Not everything needs to drive like a Honda Accord or BMW 3 series.
The car also garnered lots of praise, something that surprised me. Only late model car that I have driven that got more positive attention was my '88 Corniche. Funny that. I remember some guy in a new '07 S550 treating me like royalty and rather awestruck regarding my old rolls. Told him his benz has more thorough engineering in its door handle than my rolls has in its entirety.
