:D Yes. I would like to own one - the 450 HP, 6-litre W12, of course.
Almost all Phaetons were AWD.

My brother had a Phaeton for 4 years. Excellent car. The biggest problem is that it is too bland and boring. He sold it last autumn because the weather predicted it would go freezing overnight. The previous winter there was a problem the local VW dealer could not solve. Also, the regional VW main dealer could not solve it. It was when it had been freezing overnight. The car then would not start. It needed several tries and in the end would start after minutes of trying.
He got fed up with the fact the same problem ocurred again after the first night of freezing, and bought a XF Estate.
The future ain’t what it used to be.

With a gorgeous hinge mechanism like that? It is the automotive equivalent of the sexy librarian with her hair up and glasses on. "Why, Miss Jones, I didn't realise you were beautiful"...

Spotted this morning, here's a BMW X3 with the perfect registration for my old FF Mk II, and a beautiful Yamaha.

I like the way the windshield sits high into the top of the roof.

This was found in the Phillipines a few years ago. Who built it and for whom?

It was for (Sir) Stirling Moss, I'm amazed that it has survived!!

It is mostly Cortina GT, but for some obscure reason it was thought necessary to make it a coupe and add loads of extra kit to make it "the perfect car" for a dashing man around town like Stirling.
