You have an F430, but no digital camera?

RR is selling more of this model car than any other in their entire history, just something to keep in mind...

Hong Kong used to be the largest concentration of RR in the world but I think that is surpassed by Dubai? I know that for the March shopping month they give away a Rolls daily - which I thought was the largest order for the cars (31). That might have been surpassed.

The sales of the Phantom are probably a reflection of the trend of wealth - the USA is not the center - many other areas are doing well with oil prices... They are fairly common in Russia. It is my understanding that the Phantom is easy fit for security - armour plate.

I like the Phantom, especially the grille.

I like the phantom, I also like the 300C, when properly equipped they look slightly phantom-esque

Along with ugly and ill proportioned.
How many have they sold? How do you find how many units a car has moved?

Not at all. Buick sucks. Never liked anything they've made and probably won't. Buicks are for 70 somethings.

You know I've heard they now make the best american cars. Is this true?

I don't know if having Tiger for the last 5 or so years as their spokesman has really changed their image.

The 300C has sold quite well, it was actually one of Chryslers more popular selling models. Outside of the SRT8 version, I'm not a fan...but I have to give the young African American designer props for creating a cheap knock-off of the Rolls, while at the same time making it lucrative.

I guess, but I would love to have a 87 GNX in my garage, plus I have always liked the Riveria's.

As for current models, the Enclave is quite nice, if you're a fan of SUV's.

I didn't know the designer was an African-American. I always thought it was aimed at middle-aged white men who wanted some sort of updated 2008 muscle car. I vaguely remember reading that somewhere in some article, although it never made sense to me. Did the designer ever admit there was an intentional element of copying the RR phantom design to it, or do people just assume it? I thought the fact that the hip-hop generation embraced it was merely a serendipitous event. Kind of like how Lincoln Navigators and Cadillac Escalade's were originally made for old white guys to drive to the country club, but became popular with rap stars.
