Although none of us will probably ever own one on these cars, which would you take and why (Just for fun ;))?

2006 Bentley Arnage
2006 Rolls Royce Phantom
2006 Maybach 62

The Rolls is the only one I had even heard of a few years ago, so I'd have to go with it, but I can't stand their hood ornament! :D

I'd rather have the Rolls than a Bentley or Maybach. The Bentley is too plain for a $250,000 car and the Maybach is basically a Mercedes-Benz CL-Class on steroids.

The Rolls-Royce in the only one that has a completely original design, and you just have to love that silver hood ornament :D!

If I hit the 15 million lotto tonite, the one luxury car I must have is the Bentley Continental GT. Good enough for Paris Hilton, good enough for me. I love the sporty styling combined with luxury and power.

Paris sure picked the ugly rims though.....

I voted for the Rolls, because IMO, Rolls Royce has always been a statement of pure luxury!

But for the most luxurious Cadillac ever, I would have to say the 1974 Fleetwood Talisman, crushed velour 4 place seating, 2 center consoles, The front console contained provisions for an illuminated writing pad with pen and pencil, along with a lockable storage compartment. In the rear is a holder for vanity mirrors and so forth, with the lockable storage bin. Other niceties were deep pile carpet and mats, foot rests and assist straps. Exterior features were a padded Elk grain vinyl roof, special wheel discs, a stand up wreath and crest ornament on the hood, and "Fleetwood Talisman" script on the sail panel.

The Talisman leather package was almost as much as a brand new $2500 Ford Pinto!!!

Not easy to choose. The Bentley, to me, is the most authentic so it gets my vote. I would -love- to have a Flying Spur.

A nice Flying Spur Review....(click the pics)

http://www.canadiandriver.com/articles/ly/06continental_flying_spur.htm

"The Flying Spur's performance is remarkable in and of itself, but what's even more impressive is how easy it is to pile on such huge velocities. For a car that weighs more than 5000 pounds, the way it leaps away from stoplights is nothing short of remarkable - it feels like a freight train's rear-ended you into the next block. On city streets and at (reasonable) highway speeds, thumping, pass-15-cars-in-a-row acceleration is always available thanks to an impressive lack of turbo lag and a slick-shifting six-speed automatic."

The most luxurious is the Rolls Royce. But its just SOOOO tall!

The Maybach is nearly as luxurious as the Rolls, but somehow it doesnt hit the grade. Maybe because it is fugly.

The Bentley Arnage is not a luxury car in the same sense as the other two. It is a V8 whereas the other two have V12s. Its a Rolls Royce in a sports jacket. It is, however, my choice. For when i sell the Escalade :sneaky:

EDIT:

The Bentley Limousine does count i suppose. But the standard model is my choice. A Bentley is for driving. Not to be driven in.

Maybachs are too bland for my tastes. I'd rock the Bentley Arnage over the Phantom though. The back half of the Phantom doesn't live up to the front half of it... the back's too small looking, and I like big butts and I can not lie.

The Rolls Royce, to me, looks miss proportioned.

When you were a kid, like playing with them big Matchbox cars with your little ones......

Was never right.

That's why I choose the Bentley :)
