A while back a acquaintance took me for a ride in his 6 L 12 cylinder.
The ride, engine, gearbox, great interior with almost zero sound intrusion, and quality are very impressive.
The exterior is likely too unassuming and not flashy enough for the well to do U.S. car buyer.
Great car IMO.

I remember seeing this factory years ago when the Phaeton was introduced here. Most don't realize the Phaeton was finished by the same assemblers that do the Bentley, hence the highest level of material and quality used in the car.

It's also amazing how much value the Phaeton has retained if you find it on ebay, especially for a VW.
