Hahaha thats actually a very good compairison

Finally a RR you can drive yourself that isnt a drop top. Though i'm sure its the bee's knee's in real life I think the Bentley CGT looks much better. Looks like not much though was put into that back end (and they just used the front from an existing car in their fleet). Looking forward to the side by side comparison between this and the Bentley

It's actually my favorite RR by far. Although I have to say that color combo does not work for me at all.

This one the other hand...

Chrysler 300C headlights. RR should change there headlight look now. Also, is the Wraith based off the 6 series frame? I for some reason keep seeing the 6 series in it. We all know RR is owned by BMW...right?

From the angle I find the first pic has the lines of a early 60's charger...

The 300 took the look from RR, it would never be the other way around..

Sorry, but in my opinion suicide doors on a coupe are just plain stupid!

Not really a fan. It looks old, decades old like others have said. I think the new CL / "S-Coupe" is a much more modern and striking design. If the rumored Pullman models come in to replace Maybach, and they have one based on that car... I know which would get my lottery $$$

That looks terrible in the maroon. The design with that color looks like the designers got lazy after the C pillar.

Definitely a fastback design! Kinda similar to the Bentley continental GT Coupe. I prefer the Bentley myself!
