    You could even get an integrated electric shaver for the hirsute dictator on the run.
    Ooh, aren't they all?

    Kim-Jong Il looks quite baby-faced.

    It was discontinued in 1981. I feel it would make an enviable daily driver.

    Maybach 100% I just didn't like the seats in the Phantom. The Lexus ls600 looks very comfortable, and the exterior has presence if not decent looks. Apparently boring to drive, but whatever, I'm too young anyway...

    Definitely Maybach. Being reclined in the back of a 62 is awesome. And it looks like an S class, so to most people you are kind of under the radar (more so than in the hideous monstrosity of a brick that is the Phantom).

    A 1936 Cord 810.

    I'm surprised by LK's response.
    I would have thought he would prefer something like a Hispano Suiza Landaulet or something like that.

    Lucky you! I've only been in a couple 57s and a 57 s. I was upset when the new s-class came out, it makes the Maybach seem less special. More people would look before, but now it is good for blending in if you don't want a flash old royce

    For the full dictator, a Mercedes 600 in black.

    +100 for the Benz 600 circa 1968

    The first car that awed me...[​IMG]

    Interior is nice on the spur, and I guess it would be good to drive as well. Arnage if you want the road presence

    While the Maybach is undoubtedly nice, it just looks like a more expensive S Class. If I had the money (which I never will), I'd just get an S65.

    Maybach. I've sat in the back of one. The one I was in had reclining rear seats, enough leg room to stretch your feet, and had all the entertainment options available like wireless noise cancelling headphones linked to the headrest lcd.
