If the Galibier is tasteless, I don't want to have taste.

I want each of them along with their own dedicated driver (Skip Barber trained hottie with big knockers, of course)

It looks a lot better once you do away with the ridiculous chrome sides. The interior is beautiful, though wood doesn't make a good armrest for the driver.

The interior is too monochromatic, IMO, although still very beautiful. But the wood is absolutely gorgeous, and I will admit the car looks 1000x better than the other pics I've seen with the chrome sides. I can't really talk shit when I drive my 2005 Taurus every day and am very happy with it. I'm just sayin'.

I don't perticulary like the Mayback but it is the first luxury car of this class that I got to enjoy first hand. I thought it was a little over the top but it still holds fond memories for me.

I don't have very much experience with that Rolls so I cannot comment. Sat in a phantom once thats it.

The bentleys I really enjoy. I don't know the models that well but have driven a convetible that looks just like the one in the picture. I really did like that car. It was just so dam nice inside and I loved driving it.

I've also driven the Bently GT Speed recently. I loved it. Not normally my taste but it just screamed FUCK YOU, I eat baby seals for breakfast and my shit does smell better then yours. I mean it had such a fuck you attitude that I fell in love. HAHA

So if I was to get any of those (like I can afford it) it would be the bentley

Probably the first time I've agreed with foo on anything, but the monochrome Galibier is head and shoulders above the others posted, at least in terms of exterior design.

Ha ha ...yes, I think you're correct. But that is not to say that to own one is to have no taste.

It reminds me of a story I once heard: Elizabeth Taylor was wearing a necklace set with a particularly large diamond; a guest remarked on how "vulgar" it was; Taylor replied, "I thought so too ...until I owned it".

The Maybach and the Rolls are more obviously limousines. Driving is probably fine, i'm guessing, but the attention is clearly directed to the rear passenger seating. I think as far as appearances go, the best looking of these cars is the Bentley. It also seems most likely the car meant to be driven by its owner. That Bugatti does very little for me. The interior is striking, in a concept car kind of way, but the exterior is just gaudy. The exterior of the Maybach loses something that large Mercedes sedans have. I think it is the tall greenhouse and the relatively lower beltline. It appears disproportionate. It reminds me of the way the executive Cadillac limousines made for the White House look, (but you know the reason there, it is a parade car and the heavy armored glass is very flat.) I am reminded of other cars with that ungainly tall greenhouse that makes the car look funny overall. Somehow, the two-tone paint doesn't make it look any more luxurious. I know the reclining seat is supposed to be the pinnacle of rear-seat accommodation, but the picture just says "dentist chair" to me.

Aston Martin db4. I know nothing about cars but of all the British labels I find Aston Martin most appealing. I have no idea if that view could be reinforced by technical superiority. If someone says Bentleys are better cars I'd just believe them.

Oops ... an Aston, it is very nice.
